On the morning of May 13, 2011, I presented a talk entitled “From Generation to Generation: Maintaining Cultural Identity Over Time” to the School of English Language, Literature and Culture at Beijing International Studies University, in Beijing, China.
My thanks to Dr. HONG Liang, Chair, Intercultural Communication Department and Director, Center for American Media Culture Studies, within BISU for organizing the talk as well as an excellent faculty lunch afterwards, and for working with my schedule constraints.
I had the chance to meet more faculty at BISU than at any other university in China, including Dr. WU Guijie, and half a dozen others who have promised to send researcher profiles that will be posted to this site. We found many areas of overlap, and I look forward to continued contact with several.
My thanks also to the graduate student assigned to guide and translate, SHAOFENG Chen.
Director, Center for Intercultural Dialogue
