Zhang's lecture will address how, through a new mass psychological counseling movement, middle-class Chinese seek to refashion "the self" by turning it into an object of intense inquiry, while pursuing personal development and fulfillment through therapeutic projects centered on the notion of self-management. Zhang is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of California at Davis. This event is free and is sponsored by the Confucius Institute at the University of Kentucky.
The UK Confucius Institute in partnership with the Headley-Whitney Museum is hosting a Chinese New Year's Celebration with the opening of a new exhibition entitled, "Art on a Roll: Modern Chinese Scrolls". Come and enjoy traditional Chinese painting, as well as Chinese music, calligraphy, Taichi, and Chinese food.
