New Confucianism in a Global Age: A Conversation with Professor Tu Weiming
Professor Tu Weiming of Harvard University and Peking University is a world-renowned scholar of Confucianism and its relevance to contemporary society. He has been instrumental in developing a dialogue among civilizations, particularly between the post-Enlightenment culture of the Western world and the modern transformations of Confucian humanism in the countries of East Asia. He has called for what he terms “New Confucian Humanism” to become “a source of inspiration for human flourishing in the twenty-first century” by contributing to the development of a worldwide “culture of peace that emphasizes communication, negotiation, dialogue, and reconciliation.” Join us for an engaging and insightful conversation with one of the leading thinkers of the modern age and learn what our students need to understand about how the Confucian values that have defined East Asian civilization for millennia continue to have resonance for the contemporary world.第四届全美中文大会将于2011年4月14至16日在美国加利福尼亚州旧金山举行。大会会址:

全美中文大会的宗旨是增进汉语教学届的全方位沟通与交流,促进中文学习在美国广泛且有力的推广。去年,来自小学、中学和大学的将近1000人参加了第三届大会。与会各界在会上充分分享了有关中文课程质量,教师培训及进修,姊妹学校合作,教学技术运用等等方面的理念、经验和体会。
