The Future of U.S.-China Relations

The relationship between the United States and China remains in a state of tension and uncertainty. Michel Oksenberg, an authority on Chinese affairs, will examine this important issue under the auspices of the Keck Center.

Oksenberg is a senior fellow at the Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University, where he is also a professor of political science. As a senior staff member of the National Security Council, he played a major role in normalizing diplomatic relations between the United States and China in 1978. From 1992 to 1995 he served as president of the East-West Center in Honolulu.

Oksenberg taught at Columbia and Michigan universities and wrote a number of books, including China and America: Past and Future (1977), Policy Making in China (1990), and An Emerging China in a World of Interdependence (1994). He is a member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations board of directors.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
