China Lecture Tomorrow in KC

The University of Kansas' Confucius Institute has a lecture tomorrow night. Here is the write-up on what the talk will be:

Chinese census reports indicate an abnormally high percentage of male children born in China. Is this accurate? Where are the missing girls? Scholar John Kennedy's research in rural China has revealed large numbers of unregistered, unreported girls in China's villages. What lies ahead for these girls? What are the implications of raising unregistered girls for the girls and for their families? John Kennedy draws from his research and personal experiences in rural China to help us understand the complex issues related to gender imbalance in rural China.

This should be really interesting. I'm not sure if Qian is going to go, but I am. If anyone reading this is in the KC area, check out the website here for details.

In the next few days, I'll try to share some of my thoughts on the event here on the blog.
