Past CIW annual lectures
New Sinology in the Xi Jinping era
When Xi Jinping became General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party in November 2012, he declared that the Party was travelling along a 'Chinese path' 中国道路 into the future; it would not follow the 'old path' 老路 of Maoism or pursue the 'arrant paths' 邪路 of Western-style market democracy, rather it was forging a course unique unto itself.
The architecture of education in Canberra and Beijing
Designing major buildings in an environment of profound institutional change offers challenges to any architect with an interest in the making of practical, but also aesthetically significant (and therefore personally conducive) spaces for research, teaching, online work and public as well as policy engagement in a university.
Partners in influence: how Australia and China relate through science
Complementary research priorities and shared challenges means Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is an important part of Australia and China’s bilateral relationship.
Professor Gungwu Wang presents the Australian Centre on China in the World Annual Lecture for 2012.
Australia and China in the World: whose literacy?
This Inaugural CIW annual lecture seeks to address the anxieties over ‘China Literacy’ in an age of Chinese economic ebullience, historical revival and national aspiration. In doing so it recalls some of the concerns of founding figures of Chinese Studies at The Australian National University, while advancing ideas related to the Australian Centre on China in the World, founded in 2010.
