WOW’s new look and new content

It’s been quite a while since I’ve visited the group blog We Observe the World (WOW), and I was surprised at what I saw there today: some truly intriguing, beautifully written posts from Joseph Bosco’s students at Beijing Foreign Studies University’s journalism department, not to mention a whole new look. It’s so encouraging to see Chinese bloggers go after controversial and highly charged topics and write about them with such conviction – and tolerance. Like what life is like for a gay friend at a Chinese university. Or reflections on the murder of a prostitute in Gansu province. And a post on the life of a lesbian athletics student at a Chinese sports school.

Joseph himself can point you to more good stuff.

Dear Richard,

On behalf of my students, thanks a million, my dear friend!

Dear Dave,

They are busy, yes, but I just reminded them that they can’t be too busy to reply to comments from their readers. Let’s see how well they listen to their teacher.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and give good advice.
