Confucius Institute Turns Three

The Confucius Institute at Pace University celebrates three successful years on May 5 with performances by student groups and the New York Chinese Opera Society, calligraphy demonstrations, fortune-telling, a raffle, panel discussions, and more!

Join the Confucius Institute at Pace University on May 5 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Student Union on the NYC Campus as they turn three!

The event kicks off with demonstrations of the ancient art of calligraphy, fortune-telling, and food and drinks.  Following this will be a panel discussion on Parenting: West and East in conjunction with the 20th Annual Pace University Psychology Conference.  The panelists, in response to the popular but controversial book by Amy Chua:  “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” will explore the differences in childrearing beliefs and practices among American, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian cultures.

Following the panel discussion, there will be performances by student groups and the New York Chinese Opera Society (NYCOS), refreshments, cake-cutting, and a showcase of the Institute’s programming and classes. In addition, Olivia Drouhaut, a Confucius Institute Scholarship Recipient, will speak on her experiences studying at Xiamen University this winter.

The event is open to the public. RSVP to either ci@pace.edu or (212) 346-1880. For more information, click here.
