Picture1“Hollywood in China: How American Culture Shapes Chinese Views of the USA”

Watch the program here.

If America is the world’s largest exporter of culture, China is certainly the world’s largest importer. Peter Gries will discuss the role of popular culture in improving attitudes toward America in China and increasing the desire for friendlier US policy.
