English Department Colloquium "How I Found Myself in China" - John Cox

November 12, 2013 | 4:00 PM |
Fried-Hemenway Auditorium, Martha Miller Center

In July, 2013, John Cox traveled to Beijing for a week-long academic conference. Then he boarded a plane for Kunming, in China's southwestern province of Yunnan. There he followed the same route his parents had taken, seventy years earlier, when they barely escaped the Japanese army's invasion from Burma (Myanmar). His presentation will describe both adventures (theirs and his) with pictures of both.
