China and the American Revolution: Rebellion, Sovereignty, and An East Indies Trade for a New Nation. Talk by Brown University Prof. Caroline Frank

The Boston Tea Party has legendary status in U.S. history as one of the initial acts of a “free-born” people resisting tyrannical rulers and oppression. But why did the importation of Chinese tea provoke such a radical response—political, martial, and rhetorical—when colonists had tolerated and excused over a century of antagonistic British mercantilist legislation? Frank’s talk examines the fundamental significance of China at the time of the American Revolution. Her topic will be based on her book Objectifying China, Imagining America: Chinese Commodities in Early America. Sponsored by: Asian Languages and Cultures Department, Media and Cultural Studies Department, International Studies Department, Department of Multicultural Life and APA (Asian Pacific Awareness), and USCPFA-MN (US-China Peoples Friendship Association – Minnesota)

Making his fourth appearance with the Chopin Society is Richard Goode, one of the world’s most treasured musicians, whose profound connection to the music and magical quality at the keyboard have earned him a large and devoted following.
