Time: 6:45 PM to 9:00 PM

Panel Discussion

Discussion Title - "Adversaries, Allies, Competitors, or Enemes? Present Relations between the U.S., China, and Taiwan."

Present Relations between the U.S., China, and Taiwan

China and the U.S. are top trading partners with each other and their economies are considerably integrated.  Yet the two countries are now engaged in a massive trade war that is hurting both economies.  Much against U.S. interests, an increasingly aggressive China has asserted its control of the South China Sea and has diplomatically isolated Taiwan, an unofficial American ally.  The purpose of this panel is to discuss the direction in which U.S., China relations are headed, and where Taiwan fits into this equation.  The panelists will include Liu Guoli, Professor of Political Science at the College of Charleston, and the following Citadel professors: Michael Sun, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Jack Porter, Associate Professor of Political Science, and Keith Knapp, Professor of History.

Event: Public Lectureling chen images3

Speaker: Dr. Ling Chen

Lecture Title: "The Sacred Island of Okinoshima's Struggle for Placement on UNESCO's World Heritage List" 

Details: Dr. Ling Chen is giving a public lecture on The Sacred Island of Okinoshima and the struggle to place the island on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The island is considered a kami (deity or spirit) that guards Japan from foreign intruders or malevolent seaborne forces. Inhabited only by one Shinto priest, women are prohibited from access to the island which makes this an interesting presentation given Ling Chen is a woman! Just last year the island gained UNESCO status and Professor Chen's talk will shed light on Shinto beliefs, the archaeology and history of the island, and the political agendas and conflicts revealed during the process to obtain historic UNESCO status.
