1. Promoting the core ideas and educational philosophy of Confucius. Apply the legacy of Confucius to Hampshire's education.
2. Introducing and promoting Chinese culture, classic philosophies, bringing in panelists, holding workshops, writing and sharing blogs...
3. Encourage discussion about Chinese social, economic, political, cultural issues, raising awareness and creating brainstorms
For Hampshire Confucius, the mission statement is never final. You make it what you want. It will get better and better with your input and imagination!
"History and Culture" Movies Series
Interested in Chinese history? Or Chinese culture? Or Chinese film?
Come watch classic Chinese movies every week!
There will be an email of an introduction about the movie before every screening, such as a short history regarding the story’s era, and an analysis after screening, such as mainstream critiques and social problems involved in the movie. Of course you can ignore them if you’ve got enough readings LOL.
Every Sunday 7:30-9:30pm at FPH West Hall.
"East and West" Movies Series
In Fall 2012, Hampshire Confucius will be screening movies on "East and West Comparative Cultural Inquiry" on Monday nights. There's a wide selection of films, and your advice is most welcome.Every Monday 7-10pm at FPH 106.

Year of Tiger & Lantern Festival Celebration Dinner!
When: 5-10pm on Feb 28th, 2010
Where: Merrill Living Room (across from Saga)
What:best food of the year and Chinese New Year Celebration!
It has just turned into the Chinese Year of Tiger! We wish that we can share the happiness, culture and, of course, the food with the whole Hampshire community. Hampshire Confucius (a newly founded student group) is putting up a celebration dinner on Feb 28th, Friday, from 5-10pm in the Merrill Living Room. The 28th is also the Lantern Festival and the first full moon in the year of Tiger. So this will be a double/triple celebration, and the event is open to the whole Hampshire community.
We will decorate the room and turn it into a little Chinatown. We will make dumpling ourselves (yes, you make your own dumplings), play music, send out gifts, introduce Chinese culture, do workshops on Confucius and other Chinese philosophers. The visiting Chinese scholars have volunteered to cook delicious Chinese food for us! This is event is definitely the most tasty one of the year! The only thing that I am worried about is that after this gorgeous meal, people won't step into Saga again.
So come, and tell your friend to come! Warning: we are not responsible if you miss the food!
