Martin Farrell, professor of politics and government and coordinator of the global studies program at Ripon College, will be presenting a paper entitled “Witnessing the Greatest Peacetime Social Transformation in Human History: Personal and Professional Reflections on Thirty-Two Years of Study and Travel in the People’s Republic of China” at the 20th national conference of the Asian Studies Development Program of the East-West Center.
The conference will be held in Houston, Tex. on March 13-15, 2014, and this year’s theme is “Revisiting the Past, Living the Present, Envisioning the Future.”
