Chinese Language and the World Expo
Travel Study Program in Shanghai, Summer 2010
Published: Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Immerse yourself in Chinese language and culture this summer by examining the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai. Through classes at Shanghai Jiaotong University, you’ll focus on contemporary Chinese in a professional context and have the opportunity to practice the language through your fieldwork at the Expo. The program also looks at the cultural backdrop to the Expo through a course on the history of such large international cultural events. You’ll see the ways in which the 2010 Expo shines a light on China’s growing role on the world stage and bolsters the country’s nationalist movement. Students at all levels of Mandarin are welcome to apply.
Course is offered through the Asian Languages and Cultures and History Departments.
