China on the World Stage
Weighing the U.S. Response
China’s reemergence as a global power provides new questions and new opportunities for U.S.-China relations. Join the Choices Program for an afternoon of discussion and sharing of best practices for using the newly revised China on the World Stage: Weighing the U.S. Response curriculum unit.
Thursday, March 14th 2013 at 4-6:30pm
200 Dyer St
A light supper, a copy of the newly revised Choices unit, China on the World Stage: Weighing the U.S. Response, and a certificate of attendance will be provided.
A confirmation email will be sent to you with directions and parking details.
Please register early. Space is limited.
Hear Rebecca Nedostup, Brown University History professor and creator of the popular China Gateway website, discuss "Asia's Orphan?: Taiwan's Shifting Place in Empire, Nation, Region, and World."
Dr. Nedostup’s presentation will explore Taiwan's modern history as a frontier island of hybrid cultures, only periodically brought under a strategic spotlight through the interactions of empires, rising nation-states, and hot and cold wars. The diversity of Taiwan's historical experience has produced a culture that is simultaneously worldly and intensely tied to place, and a democracy that is arguably Asia's most vibrant.
During the workshop we will also:
- Explore new lessons in China on the World Stage: Weighing the U.S. Response
- Share best practices with other educators for using Choices units and Scholars Online videos in your classroom
- Learn about other resources for teaching about China and U.S.- China relations
