The J. Earl Moreland Lecture on AsiaEach 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 a generous donation from the late Dr. Lik Kiu Ding ’49 to commemorate Dr. J. Earl Moreland, who served as president of Randolph-Macon from 1939-1967.
In addition to the lecture, R-MC will screen Zhangke’s award-winning film in the SunTrust Theater, Brock Commons (304 Henry Street):
“Still Life” (2006) will be shown on April 25, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. Film is in Chinese with English subtitles; screening is free and open to the public, and no tickets are required.
The Moreland Lecture and the film screening is made possible with funds from the Paul Mellon Foundation.
