China's Middle East Pivot: Between Baghdad and Beijing (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: China's Middle East Pivot: Between Baghdad and Beijing
Abstract: Gladney’s talk examined how China and its 21 million Muslims will be affected by developments in the “Arab Spring” countries. Gladney addressed China’s important and changing relationship with the Middle East, especially with regard to the tumultuous events there following several uprisings and revolutions across North Africa and the Middle East. Among the topics explored are the relevant influence of global social media and Western scholarship, as well as the significance of the October 29 “suicide crash” of a jeep driven by a Uyghur in Tiananmen Square.

China: The Revolution is Dead; Long Lives the Revolution (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: China: The Revolution is Dead; Long Lives the Revolution
Abstract: Marching proudly into an era of globalization, market economy, and consumer culture, China no longer looks very revolutionary. We must rethink the grand narrative of modern Chinese history. How can we understand revolution in a new narrative that sees more than just failure in the pre-revolutionary past, and more than just the rejection of revolution in the post-Mao present? Esherick’s lecture focused on the narrative of revolution in modern Chinese history after China march proudly into an era of globalization, market economy, and consumer culture.

Abstract: Asking students to explore cultures, life experiences, and worldviews different from their own has been shown to have a high impact on student engagement. Students often enjoy learning about diverse cultures and engaging in debate about "difficult differences" such as racial, ethnic, and gender inequality. Such conversations and explorations, however, can also be quite difficult for both students and instructors. In this roundtable discussion, three members of CSUSB NEH grant faculty learning community on bridging cultures in an era of internationalization prompted dialogue among the participants by sharing some of their own experiences as they have attempted to teach about various cultures and cultural diversity. The discussants talked about the complications that can arise when instructors are not members of the culture being explored, as well as the complications that arise when they are. They also shared their best practices, teaching strategies, and pedagogical strategies for dealing with these issues.
