CHIN 402 Capstone Poster Presentations: Thursday, April 9, 7:00 pm in Hollander 140, 141 (LaRC)

The Department of Asian Languages, Literatures, and Cultures proudly presents a poster session featuring oral presentations by students currently taking CHIN 402 and two senior thesis students. Eighteen students will present their research projects that cover a wide range of topics. Some are related to Chinese society and culture (e.g., traditional Chinese philosophy, modern Chinese theatre, China’s clean energy development, environmental protection, response to decoupling, social credit system, influence of the Chinese zodiac signs, use and effects of medicinal diet, and banned films in China). Some go beyond the Chinese world (e.g., the rise of social media, the hidden problem of trash, natural language processing, the impact of sportswashing, Chinese translations of “Alice in Wonderland,” the video game Stanley Parable, and Williams College’s athlete recruiting practices). Others ask the timely questions such as “Should the US ban Tiktok?” or “Should a country host the Olympics?” All posters and presentations are in Chinese. We welcome Chinese speakers of all levels to come and ask the student presenters questions, while celebrating this important milestone on their journey of learning the Chinese language.

Time: 7-8:30 pm, Thursday, May 9th

Place: Hollander 140 & 141 (Language Resource Center)
