Professor Crawford Presents to Allen County Lifelong Learning Institute

Dr. Crawford visited the campus of OSU-Lima to give a presentation on the interaction between China and the West to the Allen Country Lifelong Learning Institute. The LLI is a program that provides educational programming for retirees, and Crawford told them of the fateful choices the Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans made to isolate themselves from the rest of the world. This isolation cut those cultures off from technological advances and resulted in their subjugation by the West following the Industrial Revolution.
