ACES BROWN BAG
Growing Interest in Teaching and Learning the Chinese Language: Chinese Soft Power and Cultural Hegemony in Kyrgyzstan
Asel Berdalieva, CEUS Visiting Scholar, MA Student at the American University of Central Asia, Bishkek
Wednesday, December 5, 2018
12-1pm
GA 3015

In this talk, Asel Berdalieva will be presenting the topic of her MA thesis, which is devoted to understanding Chinese “soft power” in Kyrgyzstan. In recent years, the popularity of the Chinese language has grown rapidly. Many young people are attracted to Chinese and opportunities to study in China, including through scholarship programs offered by Confucius Institutes and Belt and Road projects. Can Chinese efforts create a positive image of China and overcome prevailing Sinophobia in Kyrgyzstan? How may the perception of China among Kyrgyzstani students change in parallel to the growing cultural-educational impact of China’s policies in Kyrgyzstan?

The Association of Central Eurasian Students is affiliated with the Department of Central Eurasian Studies. Our brown bag talks are sponsored by the Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center.
