Brown University Students Explore China’s Wild Western Regions, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Korea

China’s bustling economy may be expanding at an exponential rate, but its fertile farmlands have been deteriorating – and as such, internal migration has become an increasingly pertinent national issue. Many Han Chinese are venturing beyond their hometowns for work, increasing the population flow to China’s most remote and most sparsely populated autonomous regions of the far west – Xinjiang and Tibet. Movement of Han Chinese towards this western frontier has been accompanied by increased government control and development projects under China’s Western Development Strategy, all of which have fueled existing regional tensions. During this research trip, we will explore through interviews and observation the effects and results of the WDS.

To China and a bit beyond. A teacher’s summer adventure. Join me as I visit my niece in Kyrgyzstan and then back to China for some touring and teaching.

I traveled to China last summer and had such a great time that I decided to make a return trip this year. See last year’s entries for more information.
I will revisit Shanghai, Beijing, and Chengdu but once in Chengdu I will settle near there for 3+ weeks and teach English at a middle school. That will be an entirely new experience! I know some of you are wondering…”is her English good enough”… we’ll soon find out!
Also new this year will be the side trip to visit my niece in Kyrgyzstan. She has been there for almost a year, working with the Peace Corps. She is teaching English as well.
I hope you enjoy following along as I seek new experiences and explore new places!
