2017 Spring Seminar and Public Lecture Schedule

The China Project hosts a long-running interdisciplinary seminar series, with talks by both external and internal researchers. Seminars are usually held at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and are open to the public.

In 2016 the China Project and the Harvard Global Institute also initiated a series of occasional University-Wide Public Lectures under their China 2030/2050 Initiative.
