China Drift report back @ Mess Hall, Chicago

In May and June of 2011 four Compass stalwarts, Brian, Sarah, Claire, and Dan, made the journey to China together along with a host of others, collaborators from the US, Europe, and China. Moving from Beijing to Wuhan to Lashihai Valley of Yunnan province, the drift brought the MRCC into view from a great distance. The connections between points in the midwest and places in China are many, without a doubt economically and environmentally significant, complicated and highly variable, but also in some ways insistently non-existent. We will relate the narrative of our travels, the links we did and did not make, and the questions we are left with.

At Mess Hall on Thursday, August 11, 2011, 7-9 PMĀ Sarah Lewison and Dan Wang will be sharing what they saw, did, and thought while in China. Hint: each of the four brought along something to use, read, or share with those we’d meet, from or about Detroit, curiously. Maybe not so curiously.
