Paul Dunscomb presents '100 Years of New Culture,' March 20

by Michelle Saport  |   

Thursday, March 20, 5-7 p.m. UAA Campus Bookstore

In 1915, Chinese intellectuals launched the New Culture Movement. The country has grappled with how to create a culture that is modern yet Chinese ever since. In the early 20th century, being modern and being Western appeared to be the same. Today though, China is on the leading edge of modernity while remaining Chinese. Join UAA History Professor Paul Dunscomb, Ph.D., for a discussion on the significance of this lesser known and oft-misunderstood fact at this event sponsored by the UAA Confucius Institute.

All UAA Campus Bookstore events are informal, free and open to the public. There is free parking for bookstore events in the South Lot, West Campus Central Lot (behind Rasmuson Hall), Sports Lot and Sports NW Lot. For more information, call Rachel at (907) 786-4782 or email
