Assignment: China - The Week that Changed the World

A film reported and narrated by Mike Chinoy

President Richard Nixon's visit to China in February 1972 changed the course of history, reshaping the global balance of power and opening the door to the establishment of relations between the People's Republic and the United States.

It was also a milestone in the history of American journalism. Since the communist revolution of 1949, Beijing had barred virtually all American reporters from China. For the Nixon trip, however, the Chinese agreed to accept nearly 100 journalists, and to allow the most dramatic events - Nixon's arrival in Beijing, Premier Zhou Enlai's welcoming banquet, visits to the Great Wall and the Forbidden City - to be televised live.

Join Mike Chinoy, senior fellow at the University of Southern California's U.S.-China Institute and former CNN senior Asia correspondent and Beijing bureau chief, for a showing of Assignment: China - The Week that Changed the World. The documentary offers a fascinating and previously untold perspective on one of the most important historical moments of the 20th century. Mr. Chinoy, who reports and narrates the film, will discuss it with National Committee President Steve Orlins.

Co-hosted by the College of Arts and Sciences of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), the program will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8.

Patty Wongpakdee - CAS Scholarship Series

Patty Wongpakdee's "Resurfacing Graphics" is a topic that explores unconventional designs, and stimulates the viewer to experience the graphics beyond the paper’s passive surface. It will relieve the viewer from the conventionality of the printed graphics we are bombarded with everyday. Designers, illustrators and artists will apply graphics in a unique manner that allows tactile interaction. While exploring surfaces and continuing to communicate succinctly and with impact, they are also having a positive effect on the environment. Wongpakdee examines how visual communicators are Resurfacing Graphics by transmitting their visual language using atypical surfaces and materials such as textile, wood, ceramics and even water to expand their creative breadth and continue the perpetual exploration for new ways to make a mark.

Anthony DiMatteo, Ph.D. - Upcoming CAS Scholarship Series

“A Black Matter For the King”: From Virgil’s Baldric to Shakespeare’s Gage,"  will be presented by Dr. DiMatteo at the sixteenth biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies on March 8–10, 2012, in Sarasota, Florida.  The lecture explores how Shakespeare's epic portrait of England's warrior-saint Henry V owes much to Virgil's divided view of heroism.  DiMatteo's previous talk, " 'Jerks of Invention’: Shakespeare and Serious Play in Renaissance Literature,”  was also featured at the fifteenth biennial Medieval and Renaissance Conference,  New College of Florida, in March 2010.  That talk demonstrated that the bird's eye view Shakespeare often takes of human invention and politics blurs the distinction between the serious and the playful.
