TinkINChina webpage and network

Another promising website for us to familiarize ourselves with--ThinkINChina (

I found it when trolling for something quickly by Yan Xuetong--who turns out to have given a talk at their regular sessions (apparently held at Bridge Café in Beijing). Seems mostly a record of talks with associated handy short reading lists (full text) in English. Group includes Matt Frechen, bright young American political scientist I know who is a full-time faculty member at Qinghua.  From their "About" info:

ThinkIN China is an intellectual community that was created in Beijing in September 2010 by a group of young researchers who live and work in China.
TIC was born at Bridge Café – a popular café’ in the heart of Beijing’s academic crossroad – out of the genuine desire to build an informal platform where Chinese and foreign academics of all ages can discuss and help each other by exchanging ideas and information.
TIC turns this platform into a living community by organizing monthly public discussions with renowned Chinese scholars, academic workshops in the best Chinese universities and social events that help young students and researchers to get easily involved into Beijing’s academic environment.
TIC can be seen like a town square, like a Greek ‘agora’, an open space where people meet and ideas flow. It is a young, curious and passionate network that believes in knowledge based on direct experience, a community that wants to think about China, from within China.
