Trip to China

Posted on: April 30th, 2010 by alysia

Chinese University of Political Science and Law

Luther Zhang, a lecturer at the School of Journalism Chinese University of Political Science and Law, arrived at the hotel at 8 am on Wednesday, and we reached the university a little before 9 am.  We met with Dean Song and the faculty from 9 to 10 am and then attended an interview session with students before lunch.  Then we attended a fine class about the Internet.  The entire class was conducted in English.

I gave a lecture on journalism and journalism education.  We then talked with students and met vice chancellor Ma before a wonderful, traditional dinner.  We were back at the hotel before 9 pm in time to pack for the flight the next day, Thursday.

In the morning I answered e-mail and packed before going to the airport for our return flight to the U.S.

On this trip I:

  • learned more about many recent developments in China.
  • met old friends and alumni, and discussed the possibility of several important partnerships in the heart of China.
  • visited sites that I had visited in earlier years.
  • promoted Ole Miss as hard as I could; the Meek School of Journalism and New Media has many new friends.  It even may have several students from China in the near future.
