Cheng Li Interviewed by The Christian Science Monitor
The 16th Party Congress meeting in Beijing was a significant event for the future of China. Top leaders are expected to retire and a group of new leaders are anticipated to emerge.

Cheng Li Quoted in Reuters
On the last day of China’s 16th Party Congress meeting more than 2,000 delegates elected 198 full and 158 alternate members, and about 180 of whom were new faces.

Stevens Next Speaker in Faculty Lecture Series
Mitchell Stevens, Associate Professor of Sociology, will discuss "Community and Bureaucracy at Hamilton," as the next speaker in the Faculty Lecture Series, on Friday, Nov. 15, at 4:10 p.m., in the Red Pit at Kirner-Johnson. Stevens explains, "'Community'" is the wrong referent image for organizational life at Hamilton. The frequent invocation of "'community'" in organizational discourse abets rather than diminishes campus problems. The College is better understood as a bureaucracy," says Stevens. "Once relieved of its unsavory affective baggage, bureaucracy is a useful lens for assessing some of the College's chronic troubles and greatest strengths." The lecture is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty. A reception will follow at Café Opus. More ...
