Global China: Past and Present

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic talk, debate, discussion


Participant and panel chair, panel linked to 'Ming' exhibition, at British Museum. Outline: The Ming period saw the creation of institutions and political centres that would help define Chinese governance and culture for generations. As we embark on a period in which China’s economy and trade will lead global markets, this panel discussion examines the country’s global role today and how other leading nations' economies, governance and culture might develop in relation to China. The discussion will be chaired by Robert Bickers, Professor of History, University of Bristol, and will feature Jonathan Fenby, author, journalist and Managing Director of the China team at the emerging markets consultancy firm Trusted Sources, Steve Tsang, Professor of Contemporary Chinese Studies and Head of School of Contemporary Chinese Studies, University of Nottingham, and Elizabeth Wright, Chair of the Advisory Board of the China Policy Institute and Special Professor, University of Nottingham.
