Hinck to lead Great Decisions discussion on China

This event has been postponed.
MONMOUTH, Ill. – A Monmouth College professor with a scholarly interest in China will lead the next Great Decisions discussion.

Communication studies professor Robert Hinck will introduce the topic “China’s Road into Latin America” at 7:30 p.m. March 18 in Room 276 of the Center for Science and Business.

All eight discussions in this spring’s Great Decisions series are free and open to the public.

As the Trump administration continues to withdraw from the world stage, China is looking to fill the void. How does Latin America fit into China’s “One Belt, One Road” plan? How will the relationship with China affect the region? Should the United States be concerned about China’s growing “sphere of influence?”

Last year, Hinck co-authored Global Media and Strategic Narratives of Contested Democracy: Chinese, Russian and Arabic Media Narratives of the U.S. Presidential Election.
