Chinese Major Forum (2014-15)

In fall 2014, seniors majoring in Chinese took Professor Calvin Hui’s course CHIN 428 Advanced Seminar in Chinese. By the end of the course, they did research and produced a paper relating to the course’s major concerns. They also presented their research projects in the 2014-15 Chinese Major Forum entitled “Desiring China.” See below selected projects from the seminar.
