From the 19th of April until the 13nd of June I have a work period in China. I work in Xiamen, most of the time, in collaboration with Xiamen Universtity. Here I do research for my study at the Sandberg Institute. My research question is to find out what the good and bad sides of globalisation are and how a country as China adopts the western icons of modern times. What do these icons exactly stand for? And what do they mean for people in another culture?
