2012 Program – From the students

xian02-1024x682 2012 Program - From the students

Davidson in Shanghai was a great opportunity to spend a semester at one of the best universities in China, while still getting to work with Davidson students and a Davidson professor. One of the best things about Davidson in Shanghai is the diverse range of opportunities to travel and meet people it offered, without having to worry about getting credits transferred. Having a Davidson professor on hand to guide the experience and introduce us to a lot of interesting people was really helpful as well.

The Davidson in Shanghai program was a great experience! We had the opportunity to see many cities in China and Taiwan and to get to know students at Fudan and members of the community. It is a trip you won’t want to miss!

Davidson in Shanghai was the one of the best experiences I have had in my college career. It was an eye-opening, and liberating experience. If I could go again, I definitely would!

Taipei vs. Shanghai

Examining China’s Consumption of Counterfeit Culture

For ANT 265: Contemporary Chinese Society and Culture in the fall of 2012 (at Fudan University, Shanghai), the students in the class read Jessica Yi-Chieh Lin’s Fake Stuff: China and the Rise of Counterfeit Goods. I had picked this ethnography because I knew it would resonate with the experiences of the students in Shanghai, which would give them a good starting point for conducting fieldwork. As can be seen in the many posts on shopping and fashion, this ethnography was obviously a hit for the students. Here is a video made by Shanel Tage and Nicky Coutinho, which explores the role of counterfeit goods for both Chinese and foreign consumers.
