US China Business Center will hold it’s August Meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., at the International Market Square, Studio 185, 2nd Floor, Minneapolis, MN 55405.
Guests speaker Ted Farmer will offer a presentation on “From cooperation to conflict: R¥ising tensions in China’s foreign relations.”
After two decades of cooperative relations with its closest neighbors China has chosen to escalate conflicts with Japan and Southeast Asia. Internally, promotion of Chinese nationalism has been accompanied by rising regional tensions as suppression of dissent.
Ted Farmer was trained at the Army Language School in Monterey (Chinese Mandarin), Stanford (BA), and Harvard (MA, PHD). He taught modern Chinese history at the University of Minnesota for four decades. In 2012 he went around the world on the Semester at Sea Program; in 2013 he did a speaking tour of Universities in China and Taiwan. He is currently writing a global history.
