Thank you all for an incredible turn out at our Crash Course event, which draws a successful close to our year with GCC.
Thank you, too, to Professor Fewsmith for an incredible lecture, and for the Director’s Leadership Council for your co-sponsorship.
Here are some belated photos, and we hope for your continued support next year!
Tufts GCC is tremendously excited to host our second lecture event of the year, in conjunction with the Director’s Leadership Council of the International Relations Program.
Described by The Economist as having “plot twists worthy of a Chinese version of Macbeth,” the recent saga of China’s dismissal of politician Bo Xilai has already captured headlines world-wide. A member of China’s entitled “princelings,” Bo was seen as a rising star in the Communist Party’s Politburo. As the Party Chief of Chongqing City, he instituted a series of controversial policies that arrested gang members and revived songs from the Cultural Revolution. Last month, Bo was abruptly removed from his position, shortly after the sensational arrest of his police chief and ahead of the once-a-decade leadership transition later this year. Moreover, his wife has been implicated in the murder last year of a British expat in China.
We invite you to join us in a lecture/discussion with Dr. Joseph Fewsmith, Professor of International Relations and Director of the Center for the Study of Asia at Boston University, to learn more about this dramatic series of events. Professor Fewsmith is a long time observer of Chinese elite politics, and was this week featured on the Wall Street Journal discussing the sacking of Bo Xilai.
The lecture will take place at 6:30p.m. in the Terrace Room, Paige Hall (at the end of the Memorial Steps)on Tuesday, April 17. Light Chinese food will be served.
DISCLAIMER: This is an academic event intended to help students learn more about evolving current events in China. Any political opinions expressed by persons at the event are of their own and not endorsed by Tufts University or Global China Connection.
