Is This the Same Country? Reflections on Two Recent Visits to China
Huntington University - Huntington, IN
Prof. Steiner’s talk, "Is this the same country? Reflections on two recent visits to China,” will address the significant role of context in forming impressions of other countries. Steiner warns that we should be carefully attentive to how we interpret our impressions in light of the broader social forces that factor into our visits. To make this point, she compares her two recent visits. Either one alone would have left a very different impression of current China. Together, they piece together an interesting and more realistic assessment of the social complexities associated with their socioeconomic, religious, and environmental realities.
