She spent the first three and a half months in Beijing studying Mandarin and exploring the city. Christy spent the remaining year living and working in Jingdezhen, China, which is commonly known as the Porcelain Capital for its 1700 year history of porcelain production. Christy will discuss the research she did on historical and contemporary practices of ceramic production in China. She will also share the work she produced in response to the breadth of her experiences while on the Fulbright.
