Amy Bowes, a Study Abroad adviser at the University of Iowa, was lost. It was 2005, and she had just graduated from the UI with a degree in political science. She remembered the Peace Corps building she had seen while interning in Washington, D.C., and decided to volunteer. Six months later, she was teaching high-school English in Lesotho — a country in Africa. Bowes said she now uses her experiences of feeling unsure about travel and her future to relate with students on campus today.

Public opinion is inevitably linked with political action and political change in 21st century America. But the connection between public opinion and mass political action—or even institutional change—is not limited to the U.S. or Western democracies. On the contrary, it is an increasingly important and influential factor globally. WorldCanvass host Joan Kjaer and an expert panel of guests will discuss the rise of public opinion in China on the next WorldCanvass. The live event takes place on Friday, October 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Senate Chamber of Old Capitol Museum. No tickets are required and the public is invited to attend.

Recently, I watched a friend’s parent arrive on campus to help him move from one apartment to another. The scene made me recall my former life with my own parents, my family, and my hometown, Xi’an, China. It has been three years since I moved away from my home. Before I turned 18 years old, I never lived away from my family — my school was a mere five-minute drive from my home.
