Neil Kubler: Directing Harvard-Beijing Academy

Neil Kubler, Professor of Asian Studies, is spending the summer in Beijing, where he is directing Harvard’s summer Chinese language program, known as Harvard-Beijing Academy. He’s in charge of a total of 81 students, almost all from Harvard or Yale, plus 44 local instructors, all of whom are keeping him quite busy. On weekends he has had the chance to meet with a number of Williams students studying or conducting research in Taiwan, and to give a talk to the Beijing chapter of the Williams Alumni Association.
