Description:

Symposium on "The 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the Republic of China"

October 14, 2011  9:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

  During the first two weeks in October, celebrations from Hong Kong to Taipei to Beijing to Honolulu to Vancouver will mark the one hundredth anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution, which began with the Wuchang Uprising on October 10, 1911 and ended on February 12, 1912 with the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty and the founding of the Republic of China.  Three renowned historians help us understand the significance of the revolution to Greater China’s present and future by exploring how it shaped China’s “rise” through a century of “humiliation” by Western powers, civil and world wars, revolution, economic and political transformation, shifting cross-border identities, and the pursuit of global influence and social harmony.
