BEMIDJI-Eight members of the NorthStar Visiting Scholar Academy at BSU will present research comparing social and national constructs between the United States and China at a poster symposium at BSU on Monday, Dec. 3.

The event is free and open to the public from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hobson Memorial Union Lakeside Lounge.

Ms. Qi Fan, a Chinese opera performer from Changzhi University in Shanxi, China, and visiting scholar in Bemidji State's Department of Music, will open Monday's event with two Chinese folk songs to provide a musical comparison of the U.S. and China.

The NorthStar Visiting Scholar Academy promotes understanding and cooperation between American and international university scholars "through a unique experience of mutual enrichment," a release said. Faculty members from various international institutions make up the participating scholars at BSU. They spend a semester or full academic year attending Bemidji State lectures, workshops and classes while learning about the U.S. educational system.

Each scholar has a BSU faculty mentor who guides them through their immersion experience and assists on their research projects.
