Professor Ted Farmer Visits CSB/SJU as Resident Scholar

In late January, Professor Edward L. (Ted) Farmer, an East Asian historian from the University of Minnesota, participated in a two-day residency at CSB/SJU. Approximately two hundred people attended his keynote address entitled "From Revolution to Consumption: China’s Immergence in the Global Transformation." While on campus Professor Farmer met with students in Professor Richard Bohr’s Chinese History class and Professor John Hasselberg’s International Management Seminar, as well as members of the Asia Club and students from Zhanjiang Normal University. Before his keynote address, Professor Farmer led a group discussion with CSB/SJU faculty and staff regarding China’s relationship with its Asian neighbors and the prospects for the development of an economic community in Asia.
