Center for Chinese and American Studies

Annual Report 2008

Message from the American Director, Nanjing

Greetings from Nanjing where we are experiencing a remarkably smooth start to the 2008-2009 academic year. For a week now, blue skies (yes, really blue) and low 70s temperatures have reigned supreme. The draw to our lovely courtyard has never been greater. Yet, from what I see, our largest student body ever and our wonderfully talented faculty have been avoiding too much temptation and have been hard at work. “We have been lucky,” I mused to a senior Chinese scholar at a recent banquet in his honor. “No,” he said, “You have a history that makes you successful in China. You know how to get the right people together.” In response to his further praises of the Center, I wanted to agree without sounding self-congratulatory. “David Lampton,” I offered, “says the Center is a national treasure for both the United States and China.” “He’s right because...” the scholar began, “well, he’s usually right.” I would like to express, with greater confidence than my interlocutor, my support for Dr. Lampton’s statement. The Center has had the good fortune to become such a treasure for both nations because of its remarkable 23-

year history of Chinese, Americans and citizens of many other countries coming together to learn and exchange ideas in a spirit of openness to each other. What is possible now is built on this history. So, while 2007-2008 was a challenging year for China, it was, as this report shows, an outstanding year for the Center. Major academic reforms jointly designed by American and Chinese faculty were approved; there were dramatic improvements in teaching evaluations; we graduated the first students to receive our historic M.A. degree accredited both in the United States and China; extremely successful student recruiting attracted the largest student body ever to the Center and a highly talented one at that; and we saw great success in graduate school and job placements. As this report illustrates, notable scholars and government, professional and business leaders regularly visit and speak here, even when we cannot afford a speakers fund to compensate them. Corporate recruiting visits also hit a new high. The Center’s growing cooperation with innovative,

knowledge-capital firms is exemplified by the recent announcement of the new Accenture China Strategy Prize for Thought Leadership. For all our successes, however, there are many challenges before us, none more pressing than those of securing the financial stability of the American side of this joint academic venture. Hence, it is the great good fortune of the Center to have been able to recruit Eugene Martin, with his impressive talents and rich experience, to serve as Washington Office director at this time. Whatever challenges we face, Gene, Chinese Director Huang Chengfeng and I can take comfort in what we know to be the deep reservoir of energy, talents and vision of the Center’s alumni and friends. The other day one of our typically talented and successful graduates dropped by for a brief visit to discuss offering some internships for our students. Soon he had to dash off to catch the train to make a meeting back in Shanghai. As he hustled out, Jonathan Keller, HNC program

coordinator, thoughtfully mentioned that our visitor might use the new building exit to expedite his departure. The alumnus shot back over his shoulder, “I think I’ll walk through the courtyard. I like to walk through the courtyard.” Whether one’s strongest feelings are for the courtyard or the library, courses and professors, roommates and friends, this is the intangible spirit of the Center. And, as long as it exists, we can overcome any obstacles and strive to attain the best hopes of this place. Please do visit the Center when you have time – come and tap into its spirit. Sincerely,

Jan Kiely American Director

Message from the Director, Washington Office Since becoming director of the Washington-based Hopkins-Nanjing Center (HNC) management team in March 2008, I have been impressed by the global network of HNC alumni, faculty and supporters. As my colleagues and I consider how best to provide for the Center’s well being from our positions at The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), we plan to utilize this network to help our far-flung graduates maintain contact with the Center and to encourage their involvement in its future. As we travel, we hope to connect with alumni and former faculty in each region to inform them of current developments at the HNC and to urge their engagement and support. We have many donors to thank for their generosity during the past year. The JHU Hopkins-Nanjing Center Advisory Council, under the chairmanship of Ambassador J. Stapleton Roy, has taken an active role to support the Center. New members have joined the council and long-time members have renewed their commitment to help ensure a stable fiscal foundation for the Center. Faith in the Center and its mission is expressed in many ways. One of the most striking examples is the extraordinarily generous gift from Jeanne Barnett, the wife of the late A. Doak Barnett, a pioneering scholar of Chinese politics and a faculty member at JHU’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Mrs. Barnett’s contribution of her husband’s private library, which includes a number of rare volumes

dating from the end of the 19th century into the 1950s, will establish the Center’s first rare books collection. I welcome the opportunity to build on our success in this and future years. The Johns Hopkins University leadership is proud of its special relationship with Nanjing University. We at the Center are grateful to all who have been involved in building this relationship, including JHU president emeritus, Steven Muller and president William Brody. As Hopkins continues to build relationships in China, with the Center taking the lead, I look forward to the involvement of our newest president, Ronald J. Daniels and others in the Hopkins community, including alumni, friends and supporters. I welcome your advice and involvement with the Center and hope to meet as many of our stakeholders as possible in the year ahead. I know American Director Jan Kiely and Chinese Director Huang Chengfeng will welcome your visit to the Center.

G. Eugene Martin Director, HNC Washington Office The Johns Hopkins University

Student News The Hopkins-Nanjing Center class of 20072008 proved an exceptional class with many outstanding students and a close-knit community. Under the leadership of admission director, Elizabeth Bestani, the Center saw a 22 percent increase in international student applications, yielding an academically strong class of Master of Arts in International Studies and Certificate in Chinese and American Studies candidates.

national and international campaign for relief and recovery. With the banwei taking the lead, a joint effort by Chinese and international students raised more than U.S. $4,000 for the Chinese Red Cross.

Last year’s HNC students brought an ideal combination of academic excellence and a strong interest in building community among Chinese and international students. For the first time, the Center enrolled both first and second year M.A. candidates. Benjamin Cantwell’s successful thesis defense on January 11, 2008, was an historic moment for the Center as he became the first student to complete requirements for the M.A. Nine students followed Cantwell completing requirements for the degree in June.

Even though tested by highly sensitive issues such as political unrest in Tibet, student-run current events discussion groups remained active throughout the year. Rarely, if ever in China, did such open discussions in the immediate aftermath of political upheaval in Lhasa take place as they did at the HNC. American Director Jan Kiely wrote, “the uniqueness of the Center’s institutional mission was actually exemplified by the fact that these student-led discussion forums were held, and that the students had the opportunity to discuss some of the difficulties of these issues at a time of such political tension and the most intense Chinese government political campaign in many years.”

Beyond the classroom, student life remained full and interesting throughout the year. The student committee, banwei, launched into its duties focused on drawing Chinese and international students closer together. Outside the classroom, students participated in joint cultural activities, pursued their interests in the arts and music and served as volunteer tutors at a primary school and orphanage for migrant laborers. The tragedy of the Wenchuan earthquake brought shared pain and sadness and a collective will to join the

Graduating students did extremely well with graduate school acceptances and jobs offers. Three of Accenture’s four select summer internships for all of China went to Center graduates. Students continuing to graduate school were accepted in prestigious programs including Oxford University, New York University’s Law School, Stanford University, University of California (Berkley, San Diego and Irvine) and The Johns Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International

Studies (SAIS). Other graduates are starting their careers at leading organizations in the private and nonprofit sectors.

Faculty News The Hopkins-Nanjing Center attracts worldclass scholars and teachers. Under the capable leadership of the Chinese and American directors during the 2007-2008 academic year, the Center’s faculty received enthusiastic student assessments and many are choosing longer-term commitments to enhance their careers at the Center. The American and Chinese faculty include highly productive, prominent scholars who contribute to the Center’s vibrant scholarly community and whose accomplishments have elevated the Center’s reputation for both scholarship and teaching. This year David Kaye (Law) and Alex Hybel (Political Science) both completed book manuscripts and Andy Wedeman (Political Science) was prolific in publishing articles, producing conference papers and serving as the most widely interviewed and quoted faculty member in Chinese and international media. Bob Bianchi (Law) and Hua Tao (History/ Sociology) cooperated on several research projects, including a book on Chinese Muslims.

Beyond the Center’s campus, our faculty is active in academic and scholarly endeavors. Kaye and Bianchi were invited to participate in a conference in Hong Kong for Fulbright law professors in China. They are contributing to a conference volume on American law for use in Chinese universities and law schools sponsored by the Hong Kong America Center at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. In late May 2008, three American faculty were invited by Nanjing University Vice President Zhang Yibin to lecture at the Institute for Advanced Research in Humanities and Social Sciences. Ken Louie (Economics) lectured on the state of the U.S. economy, Hybel compared the foreign policies of George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, and American Director Jan Kiely (Chinese History) discussed the intermingled histories of Chinese and Americans over the last century. The Faculty Luncheon Seminar newly organized by Dong Guoqiang (Chinese History) and Wilton Fowler (American History) remained a popular and intellectually robust venue, giving American and Chinese faculty regular opportunities to exchange views. Hybel’s discussion of the role of ideology in the world system was particularly well received. Kiely delivered a talk on his manuscript on moral education and modern prisons in Republican China.

Offering the Center international recognition, several members of the Chinese faculty received prestigious fellowships at leading U.S. university research centers. During the spring semester Hu Cheng (Chinese History) went to Harvard on a Harvard-Yenching Fellowship. During the 2008–2009 academic year, Shi Bin ’94 (Political Science) is serving as a Harvard-Yenching Fellow in Cambridge and Dong Guoqiang is taking academic leave in Palo Alto as the first Chinese scholar ever to be awarded a Stanford Humanities Fellowship.

Visiting Scholars Adding to the academic talent, several former Center affiliates returned as visiting scholars to participate actively in the HNC intellectual community. Alison Denton Jones ’00, Ph.D. candidate in sociology at Harvard University; Denise Hare ’87, professor of economics at Reed College; Helen McCabe ’93, associate professor of education at Hobart and William Smith College; and Zhang Zhenqing ’00, Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of Minnesota; along with Zhao Xuegong, a noted historian of U.S.-China relations from Nankai University in Tianjin, joined the Center during the spring term.

Event Spotlight Career Day 2008 Alumni and friends of the Center joined students at the annual Hopkins-Nanjing Center Career Day seminar in Shanghai on March 21, 2008. Students interacted with expert panelists and participated in mock interview sessions as they learned about careers in consulting, finance, public relations/marketing, public service, journalism/media, law and non-government organizations. Many Career Day speakers noted the respected reputation of the Center in the corporate communities of greater China. Francis Bassolino ’93 of Alaris Consulting articulated it best when he commented on how the Center’s “influence has grown exponentially” and is well-known in the corporate world. Mark Mechem ’96 of CBI told students at his panel that he only now realizes “how much of an advantage it (being at the Center) was” for his career in China and that he would “never trade this experience for anything.” Sponsored by the W. P. Carey Foundation, TPG Capital, Ltd. and McKinsey & Company, the event attracted more corporate participants than ever, in addition to others from a wide variety of fields. Echoing comments of several panelists, Michael Hickman, a partner in the Shanghai office of the international law firm Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, told HNC students that his firm is “very interested in a steady stream of bilingual, bicultural talent like that which comes from the Hopkins-Nanjing Center.”

HNC Alumni Activity Today more than 1,800 Hopkins-Nanjing Center alumni are putting their training and in-depth bicultural knowledge to good use. Alumni maintain their connections with each other and the Center through involvement with Center alumni clubs on both sides of the Pacific. Eight clubs have emerged offering a platform for alumni to network and maintain the relationships they built at the Center. Socially concerned alumni have also directed their talents toward volunteerism and civic responsibility. This year, in conjunction with Project Hope, clubs in Beijing and Shanghai pooled their efforts to organize donations and blood drives benefitting areas hit by the Wenchuan earthquake. For more information about alumni clubs, please contact the Hopkins-Nanjing Center at 202.663.5805 or or visit the Center’s Web site at
