Tsinghua Week at UC Berkeley (April 5-7, 2010)

The University of California, Berkeley welcomes faculty, administrators, and students from Tsinghua University to campus for "Tsinghua Week at UC Berkeley 2010." Tsinghua University, a top-tier comprehensive research university in Beijing, China, has sent faculty members, administrators, staff, and students to Berkeley to participate in events and activities designed to promote research and learning at both universities. Areas of exchange range from science and engineering to architecture, philosophy, history, public policy, social welfare, and higher education. During the three-day event, departments, schools, and research units on the Berkeley campus will serve as sites of synergy and discussion designed to bridge research and learning across the Pacific and to strengthen ties between the two universities. Student events will highlight university life on both campuses and encourage cultural exchange.

Tsinghua Week events are hosted by the Office of the Chancellor and organized and staffed by the Institute of East Asian Studies. Co-organizers include: Banatao Institute @ CITRIS Berkeley, Center for Studies in Higher Education (CSHE), College of Engineering, Department of Architecture, Department of Physics, Department of Psychology, Goldman School of Public Policy, Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways (PATH).

The trade routes of Western China have been the portal for ideas, customs, languages, and especially religions entering the country. Tsinghua History Professor Zhang Guogang explores the complex religious and cultural landscape in pre-modern China, and the channels that facilitated introduction, and transmutation, of new philosophies. Co-sponsored by the Center for Chinese Studies.
