Health, Science, and Technology
As China pushes forward with its scientific and technological development, problems relating to environmental pollution, food safety, and human rights remain. Meanwhile, rising suspicion in the US has undermined bilateral scientific collaborations, while Traditional Chinese Medicine has increasingly become a tool of soft power abroad.
Key issues include:
- History, use, and circulation of Traditional Chinese Medicine
- Exchange of scientific and technical knowledge
- Cross-cultural psychology
- Air pollution and environmental hazards
- Aging populations
- Food safety
- The Long Institute hosts an international conference on "Living Well in China," bringing together 14 scholars from around the world.
- Journalist and particle physicist Yangyang Cheng gives a talk on "Science vs. the Chinese State."
