Event Description
China, the Shale Gas Revolution and Global Energy

TCU's Asian Studies program is hosting scholar Steven Lewis of Rice University who will be giving a public lecture on the implications of shale gas development in both the US and China for global energy supply and security, drawing upon his research at the Baker Institute for Public Policy Energy Forum on the global gas trade and his own work on the energy security policies of China's localities. The lecture is free and open to the public and will be held Friday March 22nd from 1-2:30pm in the Beck/Geren rooms of the BLUU.

Dr. Steven W. Lewis is the C.V. Starr Transnational China Fellow and associate director of the Chao Center for Asian Studies at Rice University, which he helped found in 2008. His research explores the growth of a transnational Chinese middle class; the development of privatization experiments in China’s localities; and the reform of China’s energy policies, national oil companies and international energy relations. Lewis has worked with the Energy Forum as the organizing researcher for the Northeast Asia Energy Cooperation Workshops, the Coastal Cities Summit surveys and U.S.-China-Middle East energy relations conferences. He has also been adviser to the Science Collaboration Across Borders initiative and served as the chief liaison between the Baker Institute, the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies and the China Institute for Contemporary International Relations. He is co-director of the Rice Ephemera Archive project of Fondren Library’s Center for Digital Scholarship, supported by the Henry Luce Foundation. He has conducted research and given briefings for The National Bureau of Asian Research; Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry; the Sichuan Petroleum Administration; and the Korean Economic Institute, among others. Lewis is an associate fellow of Asia Society International, an editorial board member of Asia Policy and an academic adviser to the U.S.-China Working Group of the U.S. House of Representatives.
