Kun Shi, the director of the Confucius Institute at USF Tampa, will lecture about the diversity of Chinese cultures from noon to 1 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 22, at USF Sarasota-Manatee’s Selby auditorium, 8350 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. The Confucius Institute works to dispel misconceptions about Chinese culture. A partnership between USF and Qingdao University in eastern China, the institute opened its doors in 2008 to support Chinese language programs and customs and provide training to teachers from USF and public schools in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Sarasota counties. The Feb. 22 talk is free.
