Romano Lectures at Three Beijing Universities; Profiled by China Daily

Annenberg’s Carlin Romano recently delivered invited lectures at three Beijing universities—Tsinghua, Renmin and Beijing Foreign Studies University. Romano, who is also Critic-at-Large of The Chronicle of Higher Education, spoke on three subjects: his book, America the Philosophical; “Literary Life in America Today”; and “Liberal Arts Education and China.”

China Daily, the main English-language newspaper in China, ran two prominent articles on Romano and America the Philosophical in the fall, leading to the invitations. The newspaper also quoted Romano at length in a Jan. 31, 2013 article, “China Writes Its Way Onto the World Stage,” about international response to Chinese writers following the awarding of last year’s Nobel Prize in Literature to novelist Mo Yan.
