Yun Zhou speaks with "Quartz" on the tensions between feminism and Beijing's worries about population decline

"There's this idea that real Chinese food or real Asian food is not junk food — that we eat only steamed, hand-made traditional foods, passed down by mother, but a lot of Asian moms have a job. The reason we go to junk food is the same as everyone else."
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.
