APSI would like to invite you to a lunch talk by Wayne Xing, the former China Program director of the Gamble Foundation, on Thursday, September 3. The talk and lunch will be from 12:00 noon until 1:30 pm in Room 240, John Hope Franklin Center, 2204 Erwin Road. The talk title is: “Turbulent Years: Sidney D. Gamble’s Early Republic China.”
Sidney D. Gamble (1890-1968) was a renowned sociologist, China scholar and photographer. From 1908 to 1932 he made four extended trips to China and used his camera to build a visual archive of 5,000 black-and-white photographs, 500 color slides and a 16 mm documentary about Miaofengshan Pilgrimage. The complete collection is now housed at Duke’s Rubenstein Library. A digital collection was created in 2008 at http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/gamble/. This exhibit of Gamble photos will be held at the photography gallery of Rubenstein Library 08/24-11/01, 2015.
If you plan to attend the lunch talk on September 3, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, September 1 at noon. Also, if you prefer a vegetarian option for the complimentary lunch, could you please let me know that also.
