I read selections from my best students’ best work, offering many insights into China today – love and marriage, work and migration, democracy and the environment, the hardships and joys of urban life today.
Really wonderful afternoon in Livingston, which has a large Chinese immigrant population. Some came to get an ‘update,’ having been here for 25 years. Or they brought their kids, who don’t know China very well. Someone kindly emailed me later, “I learned new things about a topic I thought I had in my blood.”
