Dear CAFAM members,
I fear that by the time I get the information about this lecture series correct, the series will be over. On my last attempt something funny happened with the link.
So here’s the scoop. USM is hosting two visiting professors from the Jiangxi (China) University of Science and Technology, and they are offering a lecture series about China and business in China. One series has been underway on the Portland Campus; in fact a talk was given today (Friday). But never fear, because (a) the final lecture will be given next Friday. And (b) the whole series will be repeated on the Gorham campus in late November and early December. The sessions are free and open to the public. You can just drop in.
The historical/cultural lectures explore China’s World Heritage. Here are the remaining dates for the series (all run from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.
Friday, November 16, Wishcamper Center, room 203
Fridays, November 30 to December 14, Bailey Hall (Gorham), room 301C
This repeats the lectures given on the Portland campus.
Then there is the series called
CHINESE ETIQUETTE, PROTOCOL, AND ECONOMY FOR BUSINESS LEADERS
These presentations take place from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
Thursday, November 15, Wishcamper Center, room 133
Thursday, November 29, Wishcamper Center, room 203
