Yale Professor Writes: The Power Of International Partnerships In Higher Education

The Author

I accepted leadership of Yale University during a period of inspiring and sustained economic growth in Africa— eleven of the top twenty fastest growing economies in the world were from the continent. It was the ideal moment to build upon Yale’s partnerships in Africa and to bring related scholarship and education at the university into sharper focus. During my inauguration as the president of Yale in 2013, I announced Yale’s Africa Initiative. By working with collaborators in Ghana and other countries in Africa, I knew we could advance academic excellence at Yale and our partner institutions.

Room 202, Henry R. Luce Hall See map

It was said that more than 60,000 Japanese people remained in Manchuria when the last repatriation ship returned to Japan from China. Many remaining Japanese people in Manchuria engaged in the Chinese communist revolution at the request by the Communist Party of China. Some radical communists groups organized the cultural movements at factories, hospitals and coal mines. Dr. Tsuboi’s paper will consider their movements within the context of refugee (displaced person) problematics and discuss what /who was the refugee in the northeast Asia in 1950th.

Monster Hunt Film Screening

Saturday, April 28, 2018 – 7:00pm

Auditorium, Whitney Humanities Center See map

53 Wall St

New Haven, CT

Directed by Raman Hui, 118 mins

Dream Sky Entertainment et al., China

DCP, Subtitled in English

Despite its unorthodox visual effects, which blend live-action martial artists together with digitally rendered creatures from the “monster realm,” Monster Hunt swiftly became the highest-grossing film in China during the year of its release. Before relocating to China to direct this fantastical action-comedy, Hong Kong native Raman Hui served as supervising animator and co-director on a number of projects at DreamWorks, including the Shrek series. Nearly 70% of Monster Hunt had to be reshot after unforeseen circumstances demanded the recasting of the film’s main actor, which – when combined with the film’s elaborate special effects and post-production editing – resulted in the film taking near seven years to complete. Monster Hunt garnered numerous awards at film festivals in mainland China and Hong Kong, including at the CineAsia Awards, the Golden Rooster Awards, and the Hundred Flower Awards. As a result of the film’s commercial success, two sequels were announced, both helmed by Hui. (Written by Jason Douglass, Series Organizer)
