Happy Holidays, You Radical

There's always something exciting going on on campus.  For example, you can learn about the revolutionary dates of Red China -- for free! 

The Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies (EAPS) is hosting a teacher workshop next Monday and the deadline has been extended to 5:00pm Friday:

EAPS Educator Workshop:

China's Revolutionary Anniversaries:

1919, 1949, 1969, 1989

Featured speaker:

Charles W. Hayford, Department of History, Northwestern University

Champaign Central High School Library Lecture Hall

Monday, April 13, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

FREE, Light Chinese Dinner Provided

Popular demonstrations and official public displays show us how Chinese told the "Story of Revolution" in different ways in each of these years.

This workshop will help educators gain insights into the debates between competing views within China and comparisons with the stories told in the French, Russian, and American revolutions.

CPDUs are available to teachers.
