SEARCHING FOR VALUES IN CHINA TODAY
with an Exhibit of Chinese Christian Art Works
February 18, 2000
1:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.
The Graduate Theological Union
As China moves into the 21st century, a new generation searches for values that can sustain the new China. Young scholars and artists, aware of both the promise and peril of China's rapid material growth, look for resources to nurture the human spirit. This afternoon symposium featuring faculty members of the GTU, research fellows of the USF Ricci Institute, and two Chinese artists, will examine evidence of contemporary China's spirital search from the perspective of philosophy, religious studies, and the arts.
