Tuesday, May 3, 2016

On May 2, the Datong Society of China Studies at University of California, Berkeley visited Hoover Archives. Under the guidance Hsiao-ting Lin, Hoover co-curator for Asian collections, and Tianyi Dong, Director of External Affairs for the Datong Society, the interdisciplinary academic group viewed valuable artifacts from Hoover’s Chinese collections, including documents and photographs, the Chiang Kai-shek diaries, and artifacts related to the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The Datong Society provides a platform of communication and research for undergraduate students who are interested in China and the East Asian studies. During their visit, members learned about Hoover’s primary resources, history, fellowship opportunities, and how students can incorporate Hoover’s holdings as they pursue advanced degrees in such disciplines as history, sociology, political science, and Asian studies.
