Uncommon Reading

Posted on April 20th, 2008 by

The book for next fall’s Reading in Common program has been chosen, and it fits really well into the Global Insight focus on China for next year. John Pomfret’s Chinese Lessons personalizes the country’s recent history by focusing on five students who were classmates at Nanjing University in 1982.

Meanwhile, Michelle Twait has created a resource guide on China for the Global Insight project. Future Global Insight years will focus on Mexico, Food and Nutrition, and a Circumpolar Year (focusing on Scandinavia, Northern Canada, Greenland, and Russia).
