EA presents: Under the Umbrellas, Interpreting the Hong Kong Protests

The Hong Kong protests represent the most significant domestic challenge to Beijing's leadership in over 20 years and provide a crucial bellwether for things to come.  What were the precursors of the Hong Kong protests?  How can we interpret the goals of the protesters as well as the reactions from Beijing?  Experts from the Maxwell School will hold an informal roundtable discussion on the core issues involved followed by Q&A.


Gareth Fisher, Prof. of Religion and Anthropology

Dimitar D. Gueorguiev, Prof. of Political Science

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
