My lecture tour through China has concluded, and it was a great experience. I had a backstage glimpse into what it's like working with one of the largest education consulting companies in China, and I had the privilege to speak to and meet many families along the way. Everyone patiently listened to my thoughts on the subject of the value of a humanities education, and I hope that I was able to bring some new ideas and information to the table.
I don't usually post photos, but I'll make an exception this once and post a few favorites from the tour. I went through Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Wuhan, Beijing, and Shanghai. Nanjing was unfortunately cancelled do to other promotional activities. Not only were the lectures themselves great fun, but also traveling with a great team was a blast.
I had a great support team with me along the way, including a translator (whose name, aptly, was Echo!). I'm looking forward to working more with this behemoth of a company on some special critical thinking courses, currently in the works.
