  • Most people know that social media has played an important role in the spark and maintenance of protests across the globe and that, as a result, authoritarian governments attempt to censor these platforms. What is less clear, however, is the point at which this censorship becomes repression. Mary Gallagher, professor of political science and director of the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan, discussed China’s repression progression, specifically since the rise of social media on Oct. 17.

  • “President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership weakens America’s strategic-economic position in East Asia.” So begins “The Death of TPP: The Best Thing That Ever Happened to China,” an opinion piece written by senior Oliver Magnusson and this past fall’s Linowitz Professor of International Affairs E.

  • The Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art’s exhibition, Yun-Fei Ji: The Intimate Universe,  closes on July 2, but Reunions ’16 attendees have the opportunity to tour the show with Tracy L.

  • Sixty-one percent of Hamilton students study off campus for a semester or full year. Last summer and fall, Annie Whitehurst ’16 was one of those students, studying abroad through Hamilton’s Associated Colleges in China (ACC) program. After a summer and semester in Beijing, however, Whitehurst was not ready to leave China for good. She returned to Beijing this summer as an intern with the Foreign Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassy. With support from the Scott Steven Morris ’86 Fund managed by Hamilton’s Career and Life Outcomes Center, Whitehurst spent the summer planning events, conducting research, and enjoying more time in China.
