Beijing's Games: Reflections on What the Olympics Meant to China
Why was hosting these games so important to China, considered from both historical and contemporary contexts? How did it implement its hosting responsibilities? What might be some lasting implications? Professor Norm Moline (geography and co-director East Asia Overseas Term) will begin this session by highlighting some main points of Susan Brownell's excellent book, Bejing's Games: What the Olympics Mean to China (2008), and sharing some perspectives from his thirty years of experiences in China and then open the floor to discussion.
