Woodrow Wilson Center President and CEO, Jane Harman, was named Honorary Professor at East China Normal University during a ceremony in Shanghai on July 26th. President Harman also signed a new Memorandum of Understanding between the Wilson Center and ECNU to expand the cooperation.

The Wilson Center’s partnership with East China Normal University (ECNU) was formally established in August 2011 with the founding of the ECNU-Wilson Center Cold War Studies Initiative. Prior to the founding of the Initiative, for over a decade the Wilson Center’s Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) and ECNU’s Cold War International Studies Center co-hosted a number of international workshops and conferences in Washington and throughout Asia, uncovered new archival sources on the history of China since 1945, and produced several online and print publications.
