Exploring the Globalization of Beauty Standards

Confucius Institute U.S. Center

Join the Confucius Institute U.S. Center on Wednesday, September 18th at 6:30 pm for an informative and engaging discussion with three industry experts and YOU. Our panelists have spent their careers working within their communities as educators, advocates, researchers, and mental health providers. We are honored to be bringing these esteemed guests together so we can learn from their experiences and research while also exploring our audience's voices.

The evening will begin with our panelists answering questions which, later on, our audience members can chime in on. The audience will have an opportunity to reflect, verbally and rhetorically, on how they have been impacted by societal pressures surrounding representations of beauty. We will also explore the similarities between the challenges the United States and China face in providing accurate and multi-dimensional representations of beauty in our modern society.

Gallery Talk
