CHINA Town Hall—a webinar series throughout November—connects leading experts with Americans around the country for a national conversation on the implications of China’s rise on U.S.-China relations.

From 7 to 9 p.m. Tues. Nov. 10, New College will join the conversation with a talk called “China and America: Now What Happens.” Sherry Yu, Ph.D., associate professor of economics, is one of the featured speakers. The International and Area Studies Program at New College is also an affiliate host of the program.

Leading the event, Ray Dalio (a New York Times bestselling author, investor and philanthropist) will give a keynote speech on the critical roles of the United States and China in an era of monumental global change. Other speakers include James Fallows, a longtime writer for The Atlantic (also the local facilitator); and Jin (Julie) Zeng, Ph.D., associate professor and graduate program director of politics and international relations at Florida International University.

The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, which hosts the series, has brought this conversation to local communities throughout America for the past 14 years. The organization partners with a range of institutions and community groups, trade and business associations, world affairs councils, and colleges and universities.

Representing the partnership with New College this year is Yu, who specializes in macroeconomics and international economics. Her research focuses on banking regulation, monetary policy and financial contagion, as well as the housing market, applied finance and the Chinese economy. She is currently investigating the role of unconventional monetary policy on financial market movements, exchange rate fluctuations and income inequality.
