"[Love of liberty] is probably the ultimate expression of America’s institutional and cultural self-confidence. Unfortunately, this self-confidence has caused the U.S. to lose the ability to introspect."
Hello Jordan, hope you’re keeping safe in NYC! Amidst the global turmoil, I’m sure that like myself, you find yourself reminiscing over memories from Beijing.
A friend referred me to this piece and the internship opportunity mentioned. Please follow this link http://sdlt.asia/blockchain-fintech-insights/ to a blockchain blog that I write for. Also here are a couple of links to past writing I did whilst studying at THU: https://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/en/info/1187/1232.htm; https://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/en/info/1187/1230.htm; https://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/en/info/1187/1231.htm.
As for three interesting pieces of Chinese writing that could form the basis for ChinaTalk articles:
Insightful and important to explore the cultural differences between Eastern versus Western countries, which has been reflected in their distinctly different responses to and attitudes towards the pandemic.
After a year like 2020 with the intense conflict between pro and anti-globalisation sentiment – US withdrawal from WHO, UK’s official exit from the EU, etc. – it’s worth highlighting the new kind of globalisation that is taking shape, which is not being led by Western countries…
Climate change is back on the US agenda and with increasing pressure on governments due to growing civilian awareness, readers would be interested to review whether there is potential for unity/healthy competition between China and the US.
Look forward to hearing from you, feel free to connect on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/alice-emily-osborne/). Let me know if you would also like to see my translation of a Chinese article. Last year translated a piece about the employee persecution scandal at Huawei’s Shenzhen HQ. Happy to share this with you too!
Take care :)
