Plenary Speakers and Acknowledgments

Dr. Charles E. Morrison: Charles E. Morrison has been president of the East-West Center since 1998. He has a PhD in international studies from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced Studies. His dissertation concerned the foreign policies of the member-nations of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and reflected his interest (which continues) in regional economic and political cooperation processes. During the 1970s, he served as a legislative assistant to the late Senator William V. Roth, Jr. covering international economic, foreign policy, and ethicsa issues, but he left that position in1980 to become a research scholar, dividing his time between the East-West Center in Honolulu and the Japan Center for International Exchange in Tokyo. In the early 1990s, he moved to a full-time position with the East-West Center, starting an international relations program there and then becoming director of the Economics and Politics Institute. Aside from his work with the EWC, Dr. Morrison serves in several other professional capacities and is currently the international chair of the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council, an organization supporting Asia-Pacific regional cooperation.

Dr. Guy S. Alitto is Associate Professor of History and East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. Professor Alitto received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1975 and has taught in all areas of Chinese Studies, including the modern and classical Chinese languages and pre-modern history. He is especially interested in the connections between political/social realms and the intellectual/cultural, as manifest in specific individuals and local cultures. He continues to be interested in the ongoing Chinese discussion on culture and modernization. His major publications, both Western and Chinese language works, include: The Last Confucian: Liang Shu-ming and the Chinese Dilemma of Modernity (Revised and enlarged Second Edition) Berkeley, 1986, winner of the J.K. Fairbank prize for best work on East Asian history in 19781979, and Shijie fanweinei de fanxiandaihua sichao: lun wenhua shouchengzhiyi (Anti-modernization thought trends in a world-wide perspective: On cultural conservatism) Guiyang, Guizhou Provincial Press, 1991. In 1972, he was the American interpreter for the first official delegations from China to visit the U.S., and performed similar missions after that. In 2001, he was the interpreter of the "EP-3 Recovery Team" sent to Hainan Island, China, to recover the electronic surveillance plane downed by a Chinese fighter-plane. In 2006, his transcribed dialogues with Liang Shuming (published as [??], Beijing, Lipintushu, 2006) was number one on the non-fiction best-seller list for two weeks.
