China Lunch Hour is a space where China scholars (including faculty, visiting scholars, and advanced doctoral students) from Rutgers and nearby universities can come together to share their ongoing research. Every month there is a speaker followed by discussion. Lunch is provided! We are always looking for presenters. Please contact Tanja Sargent (This email address is being protected from spambots.
