Chinese Tidings is an annual series of lectures presented entirely in Chinese. Offered to stimulate discussions on a range of topics while fostering cultural literacy and language skills, the series is open to native speakers of Chinese, students of the language, and even those with no proficiency, since simultaneous summary translations are provided throughout the lectures by Flagship students.

To view past lectures, please visit the Resources page.
