US & CHINA: From ‘Old Friends’ to the ‘New Cold War’

October 20, 2023 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

US & CHINA: From ‘Old Friends’ to the ‘New Cold War’

US & CHINA: From ‘Old Friends’ to the ‘New Cold War’

After decades of active engagement between the US and China, the US-China relationship has recently been characterized by conflict and mutual suspicion. How did we get here? Are we in a “New Cold War”? This talk will describe the trajectory of the US-China relationship and discuss prospects for future conflict and cooperation.

Dr. Sara Newland is a scholar of local politics in China and Taiwan, and seeks to understand the behavior of local officials as domestic public servants and as actors in international relations. Her research on local governance and public service provision has been published in China Quarterly and Governance. Her new work focuses on subnational diplomacy, and in particular on the role that state and local officials play in the complicated relationships between the U.S., China and Taiwan.

She is currently teaching at Smith College.
