Changing Chinese Views of American Society at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

October 25, 2011

Topic(s):

USCET partnered with the Wilson Center's US Studies Program and Kissinger Institute on China and the US, in cooperation with the China Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), to put together a symposium on Changing Chinese Views of American Society.  The event was hosted by the Wilson Center and was standing room only with nearly 100 people in attendance.

The United States and China figure centrally in each other's international relations, economic policy, and commercial life. Many Chinese now travel to the US for business, tourism, or education, while others study American history and culture in their schools and universities or form their views of the US through the media and popular culture. In this forum, experts from one of China's most prestigious research institutes, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, will discuss Chinese views of American society, politics, and culture today.

Welcome: Sonya Michel, Senior Scholar and Professor of History, University of Maryland, College Park

Moderator: Julia Chang Bloch, President, US-China Education Trust

Speakers:

"Main Chinese Views on the US Decline" -- Zhou Qi, Senior Fellow and Director, American Politics, Institute of American Studies, CASS

"Evolving Chinese Public Opinion Concerning America and US-China Relations" -- Yuan Zheng, Senior Fellow and Director, American Diplomacy, Institute of American Studies, CASS

"Chinese Views of US-China Relations Today" -- Tao Wenzhao, Senior Research Fellow, Institute of American Studies, CASS

Commentator: J. Stapleton Roy, Director, Kissinger Institute on China and the United States
