The Story of Cantonese at Stanford

Event Details

Sat, March 06, 2021
05:00PM - 06:00PM
Registration Period:

Despite an ongoing campaign to Save Cantonese at Stanford from budget cuts, the future of Stanford’s Cantonese language program is still uncertain. To understand the future for Cantonese, this panel event will look to the past: Join Dr. Sik Lee Dennig, alum Dr. Jamie Tam, and alum Dr. Gina Tam as they discuss the history and legacy of Cantonese at Stanford. They will describe the significance of Cantonese from a historical perspective, the history of the program itself, and student-led efforts to both create its existence in 1997 and protect it for future generations. 

The panel will be moderated by Jamie Tam (BS '10).
