Wallace House Presents the Graham Hovey Lecture with Scott Tong

In 2013, longtime China correspondent Scott Tong came to the Knight-Wallace Fellowships to research China’s on-again, off-again ties with the global community and how it connected with his family. The resulting book, “A Village with My Name: A Family History of China’s Opening to the World,” examines nationalism and globalization through the stories of five generations of Tongs. China’s openness to the western world delivered great benefits to them yet came at a devasting human price during Mao’s communist rule. In the end, this openness made it possible for Tong to become an American journalist covering China.

Today, Beijing’s increasingly antagonistic relations with Washington and many advanced economies present a great risk to its economy and high-tech development.

Now a co-host of NPR’s "Here and Now," Tong returns to Wallace House to discuss Beijing’s increasing authoritarianism and international aggression and what it signals for its future and that of globalization.
