All about the 18th Party Congress:

1. Six members of the extended CCS community wrote about their impressions of the 18th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, which concluded a few weeks ago. Learn what the meeting meant for Chinese-Latin American relations from alumna Victoria Chonn; read political science professor Yuen Yuen Ang's take on the problem of corruption for the party; and look deeper into implications for national health policy with analysis by CCS dual-degree student Damjan DeNoble; and much more! We invite you to participate in the conversation by leaving your own comments.

2. Michigan Law School professor Nicholas Howson was interviewed at length on WILS radio about leadership selection at the top political meeting.

Benefiting from local and global expertise:

3. We were delighted to introduce Asia Healthcare Blog with three recent articles - two of which used the CCS Noon Lectures as jump-off points for wider discussions about China - but there is even more to read and discuss on this leading site for issues related to business, policy, and culture of health management!

4. Fantastic videos for Chinese language students: Complete Chinese subtitles have been added to the two most-watched speeches on election night in the U.S., November 6, 2012!

5. CCS faculty associates commented on China in the news with two very different story lines: Xiaobing Tang, Professor of Comparative Literature and Helmut F. Stern Professor of Modern Chinese Studies, U-M LS&A, gave his assessment of the work and legacy of Mo Yan, this year's Nobel Laureate in Literature; Linda Lim, Professor of Strategy, U-M Ross School of Business, examined China-related issues that have emerged in the U.S. presidential race.

A fond look back at some of the extraordinary events organized or sponsored by CCS this term:

6. October 29: It was an honor to host China Town Hall 2012, which featured a presentation by Richard Solomon, followed by a live Webcast Interview with Gary F. Locke, U.S. Ambassador to China.

7. October 1: The Director King Hu (胡金銓) Retrospective kicked off in spectacular fashion with a screening of the legendary film "Come Drink with Me 大醉侠" in the historic Michigan Theater. The special guest on hand that evening was none other than Ms. Cheng Peipei 鄭佩佩, star of the movie, who provided great insight into King Hu's career and also graciously took countless photos with fans!

Many more opportunities still up for grabs!

8. The 13th Annual Purdue University Annual Graduate Symposium is accepting proposals on the theme of "Humanities and Social Change: How Literature Impacts Class, Gender and Identity" through the end of today, December 7, 2012.

9. Call for papers: The Second Annual UBC Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference - abstracts are due December 31.

10. The 19th North American Taiwan Studies Association Annual Conference (NATSA 2013): Taiwan in Theory - individual papers/panels as well as dissertations are accepted through January 4, 2013.
