Jeff Wasserstrom

Portland Community College hosted this lecture as part of the symposium “Shifting Trade Winds: APEC, Globalization & The Pacific Northwest” in Portland, Oregon in September 2011. Jeff Wasserstrom is a Professor of History at UC Irvine and his lecture is titled: “US-China Relations in Globalizing Times: Legacies of the Past and Challenges for the Future.” In 2011, the United States hosted the leaders of some of the world’s largest economies for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. In anticipation of this major event, Portland Community College welcomed the public, our local business community, and college and university faculty to a symposium to discuss trade and cultural issues in the Asia-Pacific region. www.pcc.edu
