"CHINA Town Hall: Society & Culture with Raymond Chang, Lucas Sin, and Janet Yang," online on November 12.


The University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center is promoting a nationwide China Town Hall on cultural diplomacy between the US and China on November 12.
Starting with ping-pong diplomacy in 1971, cultural diplomacy has played a pivotal role in facilitating mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and China. This event will gather leading cultural figures to discuss how, despite sometimes turbulent political and economic relations, sports, food, and film continue to reveal our shared humanity and connect us through culture.

Join the National Committee on Thursday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m. EST for a discussion with Raymond Chang (Major League Baseball China), Lucas Sin (junzi kitchen) and Janet Yang (Janet Yang Productions) on the importance, challenges, and future of cross-cultural learning between the United States and China. NCUSCR Public Intellectuals Program fellow Alison Friedman (Performing Arts of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority) will moderate the event.
The event will be held on Zoom from 7:00 to 8:00 pm EST and registration is required.
