Read about last year's Glazer-CIS@BGRI Israel Studies Seminar for Chinese Students in a Chinese-language article from the Oriental Morning Post:
"Making More Friends: Israel Offers First-ever Introduction Program for Chinese Students"
The Diane and Guilford Glazer Fund and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev cordially invite all Chinese students residing in Israel to join us for an eight-day seminar that will focus on Israel's history, society, politics, and culture.
The seminar will take place from from February 19 to February 26, 2017, at the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel & Zionism on the Sede-Boqer Campus of the University.
The seminar is endorsed by the Council of Higher Education
The eight-day seminar offers an encounter with the State of Israel on several levels: academic study, tours, workshops, and integration into daily life on an active campus located in a unique settlement in the Negev.
The academic study includes lectures on the history of the Zionist movement and the State of Israel, Israeli society, central streams of Israeli culture from the early days of statehood to the present day, and an overview of the political structure of Israel, including its system of government, major political parties, and the relationship between religion and state.
The lectures will be given in English by faculty members of the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism, each according to his or her field of expertise. In addition to academic presentations, lectures will be accompanied by meetings with people who have been part of the history of the State of Israel as well as local leaders and artists who are influential in the contemporary Israeli space.
