Size Matters: Reflections from Peter Herford on a Decade in China

Tuesday, June 20, 7:30 PM, Anderson Hall

Veteran journalist Peter Herford shares experiences and perspectives from more than a decade of personal experience in China where he taught Journalism at Shantou University.

Sharing stories about a range of people he encountered along the way, Herford reflects on the size of everything in China and the impact China has on the world. His observations will entertain, inform, and stimulate discussion.

Peter suggests that the ideas contained in this article, It’s a Problem That America Is Still Unable to Admit It Will Become #2 to China,” will give you ideas and contexts for what you will hear. It will also raise interesting questions for the discussion.
