About the Bard in China Program

The Bard in China Program was initiated in April 2000 in response to the strong interest in China shown by students at Bard and Bard College at Simon's Rock. This program of events andexchanges was built on existing courses in Chinese language and Asian Studies in recognition of the growing importance of China’s international role. Each year outside speakers and performers are brought to the Bard community to make public presentations on topics that, to date, have included agriculture, anthropology, architecture, art, Beijing opera, economics, environment, film, history, literature, philosophy, political science, and music. Funds have been raised to support faculty research trips that lead to course development and for student language study and Senior Project research in Asia. Bard faculty frequently travel to china to do research and to make connections for future events and projects.
