Innovative Global Learning

Having just returned from a visit with colleagues at Nanjing Normal University (the big new campus) with side trips to Hangzhou and Suzhou, I very much enjoyed reading this feature [“Around the World, Around the Table,” Page 28, Summer 2017]. My husband and I tasted many of the same dishes described in the story and had similar reactions to some of the more unusual foods. I think I missed the pig brains, but pig lungs, duck tongue, and intestines were definitely on the tables. The Global Learning Program sounds like a brilliant way to learn about history, culture, and cuisine of other countries. Congratulations, Grinnell, on this innovative learning experience!
