Mary Talks: The Chinese Dream and the New Silk Road

Join us (on campus or online!) for the first Mary Talk of the 2019-20 academic year.

Dr. Elizabeth Larus, professor of political science and international affairs and a 2019 Fulbright recipient, will present “The Chinese Dream and the New Silk Road.”

The Chinese Dream is Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s goal of national rejuvenation with the aim of restoring China to its historical place as a great power. To help meet this goal, China is building a New Silk Road to expand its commercial and political influence and to have a more prominent status and role in global affairs. Some analysts see the project as an effort to remake the global balance of power, and as the costs of the proposed project have skyrocketed, opposition has grown in some participant countries.
