Zhejiang University

On April 27, 2011 I presented a talk entitled “Holding intercultural, international, interdisciplinary dialogues” at Zhejiang University, in Hangzhou, China.

While there, I had the chance to meet not only Prof SHI Xu, Changjiang Distinguished Professor and Director of the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Discourse Studies, and several of his graduate students, but also Prof WU Zongjie, Director of the Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies, and several of his graduate students.

My thanks to Shi Xu for organizing the talk, and especially for the chance to have dinner with his family, and try a steamboat dinner. Thanks also to his student Sarah for showing us around Hangzhou. The city is just beautiful, and it was nice to have a little time to explore, especially the West Lake area. Thanks also to HAN Chunyan, the graduate student who arranged her schedule to take the train back to Shanghai with us, and then suggested we visit Suzhou the next day to see the classical garden there, and helped us buy train tickets.
