  • CANCELLED: China Reconnects: Joining a Deep-rooted Past to a New World Order
  • Professor Wang Gungwu (National University of Singapore)
  • China Reconnects seeks to explain what China is doing and what its immediate and long-term interests are. It is not to defend or judge China. It does not employ theoretical frameworks that are not appropriate for describing Chinese conditions. It calls for understanding why history is particularly relevant to the Chinese state and most of its people. That way, we also see how the present and hopes for the future changes our perspectives of the past.
