Keith St. Clair to discuss China, Taiwan on Feb. 22

Political science professor Keith St. Clair will explore the historical, political, and cultural contrasts between China and Taiwan during a presentation on Feb. 22.

Despite the “One China” policy of the United States, there are two governments that claim to be the one government of China. The People’s Republic of China controls the mainland and has its capital in Beijing. The Republic of China controls Taiwan and has its capital in Taipei. Both claim the other’s territory, yet have developed separately since the Communist takeover of the mainland.

St. Clair will examine the relations between these two countries and discuss the possibility for their reconciliation during a presentation from 1-2 p.m. in the ATC auditorium. All students are welcome!
