To China and Back: Rita Basuray, Julia Johnson, and Ernest Yanarella

During the summer of 2013, a delegation of University of Kentucky faculty had the opportunity to travel and teach abroad in China. Organized by the Confucius Institute, the trip placed 29 faculty members at the bustling Shanghai University. There, each professor was placed with a host department within the university.
 
Among those who made their way east were College of Arts and Sciences members Ernest Yanarella, chair of the Department of Political Science; visiting lecturer Dr. Rita Basuray; and Associate Professor Julia Johnson of the English department.
 
Like everyone who went on the trip, these three were presented with experiences both unique and profound that will certainly impact their teaching back home at UK.
 
In this podcast, we explore the trip through their eyes and talk about some of the moments that made the trip something they will never forget.

Art and Epidemics: UKC 310 with Rita Basuray and Katherine Rogers-Carpenter

Creative expression and disease aren't two topics that are often juxtaposed, but UKC 310: Art and Epidemics, will explore five diseases from a creative and technical angle: tuberculosis, AIDS, cancer, alcoholism, and the plague - through a variety of creative lenses, including film, short fiction, poetry, and art. Rita Basuray and Katherine Rogers-Carpenter will co-teach the fall 2013 course, looking at the parallels between scientific and creative writing, and where these forms diverge.
