On Tuesday April 27, at 2 p.m. at the Nolin Murray Center next to St. Mary's Catholic Church on Pleasant Street in Springfield Nicholas Clifford will present the next Osher Lifelong Learning program titled, "A Background to Sino-American Relations: Three Historical Myths."
Clifford taught the history of East Asia, particularly that of China, at Middlebury College for over 30years, writing several books on the subject.
In order to help the audience understand the background of U.S.-China relations, he will give an historical background of China itself, examining perceived myths that go back to the 19th century and continue today.
The final program of the spring semester will be on May 11 on The Covered Bridges of Vermont presented by Euclid Farnham.
Membership is $40 for the semester, individual lectures are $8. Scholarship help is available.
