For the academic year 2020-2021, the Bucknell China Institute is pleased to offer nonfinancial support for Bucknell faculty who would like to invite outside experts to address the campus community on topics related to China, Chinese or China studies.
Speakers should be invited to give Zoom presentations for specific University courses, during designated class meeting times, on China-related topics relevant to the course. All Bucknell students, faculty and staff will also be invited to attend the presentations via Zoom.
Although the China Institute cannot provide financial support, it will assist in applying for honoraria expenses and with promotion and logistics for the event. Through this programming, the China Institute aims to both enhance China-related course offerings and to make them accessible to the broader University community.
Proposals should be submitted to Professor Stuart Young, China Institute director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals will be evaluated on a rolling basis by the China Institute Steering Committee. Proposals should describe the University course to which the speaker is invited (title, course number and enrollment), the background and qualifications of the speaker, and the presentation topic and significance.
