China and the World: Perspectives on Hong Kong

January 9, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm EST

A group of animated people sit at a table, with dialogue bubbles over their head (no dialogue within them). The background and dialogue bubbles are various shades of green.

This event is part of “China and the World: Behind the Headlines,” a series that several units on campus are organizing to allow thoughtful, informed and critical discussion that goes beyond the attention-grabbing headlines about China (and China and the US). In each forum, we are working to create a space for multiple and nuanced perspectives.

The purpose of this event is to learn about the situation in Hong Kong from experts outside of sensational news headlines and to provide a safe space with discussion facilitators to share various perspectives on recent events.

EVENT STRUCTURE

The event will begin at 4:15 and continue through 6:15p.m., and will include short presentations by a historian, a psychologist and an economist, and it will be followed by small group table discussions. Each table will have a maximum of 8 people and will have a discussion facilitator.

REGISTRATION

MSU students, faculty and staff are encouraged to register. The event is FREE, but space is limited, so please register as soon as possible. Those who register will receive an email confirmation no later than Jan. 7, 2020 with event details.

SPONSORS

This event is made possibly be the Office of China Programs, the Office of International Studies in Education and the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives.
