China's Offensive in Europe: A portrait of China's new economic passion toward Europe

Date
01/06/2016
Location
K3.11 (Strand Campus)
Description
For years China's international investment interests focused on a search for natural resources in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Recently China's focus has shifted to Europe as well as the United States, and to new fields as diverse as real estate, energy, hospitality, transportation and heavy industry. China's Offensive in Europe studies the trends, sectors, and target countries of Chinese investments in Europe. It looks at cases of outbound investment trajectories and journeys by some key Chinese private and state-owned companies. It also takes a look at European perceptions of China, a country with a very different history and very different traditions from the Western world. Philippe Le Corre and Alain Sepulchre examine how China's presence in Europe can serve as a benchmark to other developed economies—especially for other economies, which are also seeing a rise in Chinese investments.

Book Release: Swaminarayan Hinduism: Tradition, Adaptation, and Identity

Date
03/06/2016
Location
Great Hall (Strand Campus)
Description
What started as a small religious community and reform movement in 19th century northwestern India is now one of the fastest growing devotional (bhakti) Hindu communities in the world. The story of the Swaminarayan community's growth is one of literary and performative innovation, colonial interaction, and architectural revolution. This edited volume presents perspectives on this popular religious community's growth and cultural adaptation over the past two centuries. The volume is unique in that it includes studies by twenty scholars from different disciplines--religion, sociology, history, architecture, philosophy, literature--both insiders and outsiders, scholars who established research and those who will shape academic study of Swaminarayan Hinduism in the future.

Forty years on, living in a very different China, Ragnar revisits his experiences as a student in Beijing, offering rare glimpses of life during this turbulent and decisive year.
