Dear colleagues, The Advanced Institute for Global Chinese Studies is pleased to launch the HOW TO READ CHINESE POETRY VIDEOS (HTRCPV), a companion program of HOW TO READ CHINESE POETRY PODCAST. As a matter of fact, its first episodes are cross-listed as special video episodes (eps. 37-39) of the Podcast. Unlike the Podcast, HTRCPV does not track Chinese poetry’s historical development and instead presents episodes in thematic clusters. Due to the much greater technical challenges in producing videos, we will not be able to release thematic clusters at regular intervals. For each thematic cluster, however, episodes will be broadcast weekly. We ask for kind patience from our viewers. Zong-qi
