Visiting Chinese professors leading Look Beyond event Dec. 6
The Jamestown College Look Beyond Committee, Art Department and Foreign Language Department are hosting “The Great Wall: An Inside Perspective on Chinese Culture and Education” with visiting Chinese professors Li Xiaoqing and Guo Li, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6 in Level Two of the Nafus Student Center. The event is free and open to the public.
The evening will include a short introductory film on China, a Chinese tea ceremony, and a display of Chinese calligraphy and artifacts. Visiting professors Li and Guo, of Huizou University in Guangdong Province, will share information about China’s education system and lead a question and answer session.
“We have been fortunate to have these two Chinese teachers in our community all semester and we look forward to their presentation as a way to bring their story to a wider audience,” says Kate Stevenson, Foreign Language Department Chair. “They have been working with elementary school children, high school, college and adult learners in their Chinese classes this semester and have been guests at a number of organizations in Jamestown, so this is a chance for all those who have met them to see them again and a chance for people who haven't had the opportunity yet to meet them.”
The Look Beyond Committee at Jamestown College plans activities which encourage students and community members to look beyond to learn about other people and cultures.
