What are the Hanyu Colloquia?
The Hanyu Colloquia is a series of academic talks that will take place from
the beginning of January until the end of March 2017. China studies-related
social science research will be presented with questions and discussion to
follow in Mandarin Chinese. The series is supported through an award from
the U.S. State Departmentâ€™s Critical Language Scholarship. The intention of
the talks is three-fold: One, to provide an opportunity for native English
speakers to practice and enhance advanced-level, academic Chinese in a
welcoming and positive environment. Two, to provide opportunities for
current PhD students to share their research with the greater UW community.
Three, to bring American and Chinese students and scholars together to
discuss China-studies related topics through the medium of Mandarin Chinese.
When are they taking place?
The first talk is scheduled to take place on Friday, January 6th at 2pm by
Yiyi Tian "China's women workers: breaking taboos and striving for social
justice". All talks will take place at the Jackson School in Thomson 317
and light refreshments will be provided.
