Imagining China: from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the South China Sea



這次的哲學星期五@波士頓 我們很榮幸可以邀請到中國及亞洲國際關係學者 Dr. Sulmaan Khan and Anna Beth 來分享他們長年來對中國的觀察。從香港的雨傘革命到中國對南中國海域以及釣魚台列島展現的野心。兩位講者將以旁觀者的角度分析,為台灣的未來提供某種真實的想像。 本次活動將以英文為主,不過講者們也歡迎中文的討論!

The rise of China in the 21st Century has attracted attention in the world. As Taiwanese, we need to be even more vigilant to observe the changes and developments of modern day China. A good perspective would be to make sense of some recent actions by China towards its neighboring countries and regions, it may, to a certain extent, foretell possibilities for how Taiwan may be impacted in the future.
For this month’s Cafe Philo@Boston, we are honored to invite Dr. Sulmaan Khan and Anna Beth Keim as our speakers. From years of observation and research in China, Tibet, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Sulmaan and Anna Beth will share with us of their China perspectives. They will start with the recent Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, extending to the goals and intention of China over the disputed South China Sea and the Senkaku Islands. Please come and join us to discuss and imagining China!

This event will be primarily in English. Mandarin discussions are welcome as well!

Anna Beth Keim is a freelance writer and Chinese translator. She first went to China in 1998 on her Study-Service Term at Goshen College, and later lived in Chongqing and Beijing for most of the time between 2001 and 2008.
