John C. Hartsock, Communication Studies Department, has been invited to lecture for two weeks at South China University of Technology in Guang Zhou, China, in the fall of 2014. The invitation is part of the university’s “Attracting Intelligence” program. Hartsock will give graduate lectures on American and global literary journalism, investigative journalism and American media law. Guang Zhou, perhaps better known to Westerners as Canton, is China’s third largest city, 75 miles north of Hong Kong. The university has an enrollment of more than 100,000.
In other news, Hartsock learned recently that a scholarly article of his was republished in the August issue of the Chinese journal Journalism Bimonthly, which is published by Fudan University in Shanghai. The article, “‘Literary Reportage’: The ‘Other’ Literary Journalism,” was originally published in Genre: Forms of Discourse and Culture, vol. XLII (2009). The Chinese version was translated by Li Mei, associate professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at South China University of Technology.
