Taiwan Trip Student Stories

UHD students in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences traveled to Taipei and Tainan, Taiwan from Dec. 29, 2012 through Jan. 9, 2013. Read about their adventures as they explore night markets, temples, monuments, museums and karaoke bars, writing about it all as they go. Experience their joy as they gather among hundreds of thousands of Taiwanese to welcome in the New Year with fireworks under a full moon in the amazing city of Taipei. Follow them day by day as they travel the country, meeting students from the National University of Tainan, sharing with them and with others the pleasure of cultural exchange.

Creative Writing and the Art of Travel

Orientalism and the Western Encounter with China
Dr. Joe Sample

Explore the idea of China in Western popular culture, from chinoiserie to Linsanity. The course spans from the eighteenth-century to the present and includes artifacts of encounter ranging from cartoons to travel journals to Chinatowns.
