The Contemporary Asian Studies Student Union (CASSU) warmly invites you to the inaugural event of our Research Seminar Series – “Uncovering China: Researching Contemporary Chinese Politics” with Professor Victor Falkenheim.

This research seminar series is brought to you by CASSU, and aims to provide a forum for students who share similar interests in Asian social, cultural, and political affairs to engage in dialogue with faculty members. We hope to provide our peers with the opportunity to better understand the practice of academic inquiry through learning about faculty-level research. In this seminar, Professor Falkenheim will speak about his experience researching contemporary Chinese politics, with a particular focus on his current research regarding migration and urbanization in China. Please join us in Room 208N of the Munk School North House on January 18th, from 4-6pm. We hope to see you there!
