Roundtable at USU focuses on Chinese semester abroad

Utah State University students who spent a semester studying in China will discuss the experience Thursday, Oct. 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Merrill-Cazier Library auditorium. Everyone is invited to attend. The event is part of the ongoing Asian Round Table Forum Series presented by the Asian section of the Department of Languages, Philosophy and Speech Communication at USU. The title of tomorrow’s presentation is “Ceramic Emersion/Chinese Experience.” Nine graduate and undergraduate students from USU’s Department of Art participated in a semester program in Jingdezhen, China under the direction of John Neeley, professor of ceramics. The students spent an entire semester studying Chinese ceramic arts and techniques side by side with their Chinese counterparts at Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute, known as the world capital of porcelain dating back to 1004. The area still maintains a thriving ceramics industry.
