SPEAKER: Adrian Kerr
TOPIC: “China: It’s History and Culture”


This is a lecture on the history and culture of China which has been the most populous country on the planet since before Roman Times. We will examine this immense and varied country from the origins of its native people to its first united kingdom to the Century of Humiliation to the rise of communism. China in the last thirty years has taken a formidable position on the world stage. The impact of China’s history, religion and culture is widespread and is felt every day as its influence continues to grow.
