By Professor Gordon Lew

This lecture will look into traditional Chinese family life, custom and rituals. You will see how the six rituals of marriage in the past still survive today and create conflicts in Chinese American families.

Mr. Lew is a leading expert on Chinese and Chinese American culture. He is the former chair of the Chinese Department of the City College of San Francisco where he taught Chinese language and culture. He was also the publisher of East-West bilingual news for many years. His previous lectures on Chinese American culture include such topics as folk festivals and surnames.

Both lectures will be given in English.
