"A historian of Chinese food, Miranda Brown, a professor of Chinese studies at the University of Michigan, said that the idea of 'authenticity' is changing constantly and that the enduring popularity of orange chicken makes it an easy target."
“If you look at the representations in those videos, they are trying to establish the kind of contrast between them as modern subjects and Africans as somewhat inferior, somewhat premodern subjects that are backward.”
The Kenneth G. Lieberthal and Richard H. Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan was founded in 1961 and has been a national leader in Chinese studies for over 50 years. A member of the International Institute, the center provides students, specialists, and the public with expert resources and a deeper understanding of contemporary and historical issues related to China.
Gift by Donald and Ann Munro Helps Establish Tenure-Track Professorship in Chinese Philosophy
“Professor Munro’s gift will be a terrific new resource that allows us to teach a subject with important implications for both Philosophy and Asian Languages and Cultures," says Dean Andrew D. Martin.
A generous new gift from University of Michigan Professor Emeritus Donald J. Munro and Ann P. Munro will facilitate the establishment of a tenure-track position in Chinese philosophy at Michigan. The position, which will be housed jointly in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures and the Department of Philosophy in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, will make Chinese philosophy an important element of the programs of the two departments.
