485. Dr. Dave Wang Interviewed on Chinese Exporting Porcelain
With this post I would like to introduce you Mr. Jeffrey Bingham Mead's introduction to Dr. Dave Wang's interview in March 11, 2016. We know through Dr. Dave Wang's research, Chinese exporting porcelain to North America was more than a common product or a mere commodity. Mr. Mead said that "It was a phenomenon that swept North America like nothing ever before. Porcelain from China was coveted by America's founders and many others. Some were so addicted to their cravings for Chinese porcelain that they went into debt -and paid the consequences. On this past President's Day holiday weekend in the USA you heard me welcome Dr. Dave Wang, a noted international authority originally from China who has researched, lectured and published on the ties between the American Founders and Chinese civilization. I met Dr. Wang in Chinatown, Flushing Queens in New York City to hear his findings about the impact of Chinese Export Porcelain on Americans and Europeans. I asked him to share his thoughts on the March 11 show. Here they are! Dr. Wang is the managing librarian of the Laurelton Library in Queens, New York City and an adjunct professor at St. John's University. We featured our usual explorations on Treasures of China, immerse ourselves in timeless Chinese wisdom on the Confucius Moment and more! I shared some announcements, happenings and events -and my impressions of the Asian food courts in Flushing Queens! I felt like I was back in Asia! Mark your calendar for the next broadcast on Saturday, March 18 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern USA Time/ 11:30 p.m. Beijing Time on 1490 WGCH and anywhere via streaming audio on WGCH.com. "
