About John G.
Since their retirement from the University of Geneva and University College–Dublin, respectively, Professors Blair and McCormack have concentrated their attention on teaching “Western Civilization with Chinese Comparisons” at Beijing Foreign Studies University. They now plan to bring this innovation in comparative civilizations study to the USA. They seek a teaching venue for offering a trial version in a liberalarts setting (one semester or less in condensed format). After testing, they look forward to publishing an American version of their sourcebook with Berkshire Publishing. Their detailed curriculum vitae appear on their website http://comparativeculturestudies.org.

Abstract

Comparative culture studies often seem to come up halfempty: the China specialist may object if half the readings focus not on China but the West, and the teacher of Western Civilization may object to half the class’s attention being turned away from the subject he or she was hired to teach.
