China talks at USM

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.

BEAUTIFUL CHINA

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

This repeats the lectures given on the Portland campus.
