Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Sept. 25: Henry Rosemont on "Is China's Modernizing Economy a Threat to the US?"

Brown University Professor, Henry Rosemont, will give a lecture for Butler's Change and Tradition Program's convocation

When: September 25, 7:00 PM

Where: Butler University Krannert Hall, Clowes Hall

Henry Rosemont is one of the great Western scholars of the history Chinese philosophy. For nearly three decades, if you want to learn about ancient Chinese thinking about religion, language, morality ... it seemed you would essentially be cribbing from a two-week Harvard faculty workshop that Rosemont and Benjamin Schwartz organized in 1976. (I have a very well-worn copy of Rosemont and Schwartz's excellent collection Studies in Classical Chinese Thought that helped me as a grad student to pretend to know a lot more about Chinese philosophy than was healthy.) We are fortunate to have a distinguished scholar of Chinese culture address a topic that is all too often left to economists or geo-strategists.
