“What the U.S. Can Learn from China”
Ann Lee, Author, Senior Fellow – Demos
China’s economy is the second largest in the world and many predict it will surpass the United States’ by 2020.  Rather than viewing China’s power and influence as a threat, Ann Lee, author of the new book What the U.S. Can Learn from China and a senior fellow at Demos focusing on issues of global economics and finance, asks: What can America learn from its competition?
Following the talk, Ms. Lee will sign copies of her book.

Aashish and Pranesh Khan are the sons of the legendary Ustad Ali Akbar Khan (April 14, 1922 – June 18, 2009). Aashish, a faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, is a master of the sarod, a plucked lute, which he learned from his illustrious grandfather (also the teacher of Ravi Shankar) Baba Allauddin Khan. Since the 1950s Aashish has performed throughout India and the world, and is considered to be one of the most distinguished musicians of the Seniya Beenkar and Seniya Rababiya Gharana music lineages. With Pandit Ravi Shankar, he has worked on many musical projects, including the films of Satyajit Ray, Sir Richard Attenborough’s “Gandhi,” and David Lean’s “A Passage to India.” Aashish has also collaborated with musicians such as George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Eric Clapton. Aashish will be accompanied by his younger brother Pranesh Khan on the tabla. Pranesh was also initiated into music by his grandfather, and has had the honor of studying with acclaimed tabla masters Pandit Shankar Ghosh, Ustad Alla Rakha, Ustad Zakir Hussain, and Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri.

The Center for Asian Studies and the Center for Sustainable Communities are pleased to inform you of an exciting event taking place at Willamette University next month: a two day symposium on the “Lessons of Fukushima” on February 24-25, 2012. It will take place Friday afternoon from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and continue again on Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. All events are in Paulus Lecture Hall, Rm. 201 at the Law School.

A complete schedule of the symposium as well as abstracts of the papers to be presented may be found at: www.willamette.edu/events/fukushima

Symposium panels will address:
-the health and environmental implications of the March 11, 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster;
-the management of communication and information during this crisis and related events;
-the social and cultural responses to the crisis in Japan and beyond — including the testimony of members of our campus community;
-the politics of nuclear regulation and anti-nuclear advocacy;
and the role of charitable organizations, volunteers, Mercy Corps, and citizen groups in assisting recovery efforts.

The symposium is designed to be accessible to a general audience and the format is intended to foster conversations. On Saturday Feb. 25 from 10 am-2 pm WU students will be presiding over a family-friendly activity room next to Paulus Lecture Hall that will feature informational displays, documentary footage, and lessons in folding origami peace cranes.
