Welcome to my segment! This segment will look at a wide variety of things going on in China.
I will present an introductory lecture on November 17. After that, I would like you to present in groups. Here are five papers you could present. You could also present on a topic you develop based on your own knowledge and/or research in the library, for example, "An overview of modern Chinese history," or "Review of Chinese data sources." It may also be possible to find a research paper for you on another topic.
