SURGE is committed to spreading knowledge and educating students about China U.S. relations not only through the China U.S. Symposium but through a number of different events. Below is a list of our past events ranging from guest lectures to trivia nights.
Dialogue with professor & students from Peking University: China-Russia Relationship 2/27/2015
In cooperation with EPIIC, SURGE conducted a dialogue with Professor Guihai Guan, Associate Dean, School of International Studies, Peking University about China-Russia relations and how these relations also impact the U.S. In addition to Professor Guihai Guans discussion, two graduate students from Peking University presented their recent research also related to China-Russia relations.
Professor Michael Beckley Fishbowl 10/28/2014
Professor Beckley (our wonderful SURGE Advisor) will be discussing why, in his view, the “Rise of China” does not necessarily mean a decline in power for the US. He will argue why resolving the question is crucial for US policy makers in order to effectively plan future decisions regarding US stance towards China, whether through economic constraint, or managing the rise of China via maintaining liberal economic policy. His own research has shown a trend discussing why the rise of China does not spell an end to US dominance, and the relatively beneficial outcomes of the current status quo, and he makes suggestions on how to best formulate US policy towards China based on empirical analysis.
Kathleen DeBoer Lecture 10/7/2014
We will be hearing Kathleen DeBoer, Deputy Head of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development’s Washington Center, discuss the increasingly relevant issue of economic cooperation between the US and China. She will be providing insight both through her work with the OECD and her time living and teaching in Nanjing, China.
Same, Same But Different
“Same, Same But Different” in Olin 11, during open block from 12 to 1pm on Wednesday, December 3rd. Four Chinese and American students who have lived in both China and America will be sharing their experiences dealing with cultural and ideological differences.
