Professor Yunsheng Huang
The annual J. Earl Moreland Lecture on Asia
will be held at Randolph-Macon College on Wednesday, April 17, 2013
from 7:30-9:00 p.m. in Old Chapel,
Room 212 (Topping Room). Yunsheng Huang, associate professor in Asian Architecture,
Architecture School, University of Virginia, will present “The Internationalization
of Buddhist Architecture.”
Huang earned his M.A. and Ph.D. from Princeton, as well as a degree in architecture
from Tsinghua University in Beijing. He has traveled extensively to East Asia, South
Asia, and Southeast Asia, and he currently teaches courses on Asian architecture
and East-West architectural interactions. His most recent book, Classical Orders
in Architecture (Beijing Architecture Press), is forthcoming.
Each spring, the J. Earl Moreland Lecture on Asia brings a distinguished expert
to the Randolph-Macon campus for a public lecture. The purpose of the lecture is
to create greater student understanding and interest in Asian affairs through direct
contact with distinguished scholars and prominent professionals.
The lecture series was established through the generous donation of the late
Dr. Lik Kiu Ding ’49 to commemorate Dr. J. Earl Moreland, who served
as president of R-MC from 1939-67.
There will also be an informal reception from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in Fox Hall 102 on
the same day. Both events are free and open to the public.
