Congratulations to our EAS Language Program students who are recipients of this year's Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program!
The CLS Program is part of a U.S. government effort to expand dramatically the number of Americans studying and mastering critical foreign languages. Students of diverse disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply. Participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period, and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.
This talk will examine how longstanding historical patterns of anti-Asian racism in the United States are now intersecting with the growing economic and military might of the People’s Republic of China, the manner by which that power is now being asserted by China, and the way in which the U.S. government and broader political system are both characterizing that power and responding to it.
