Head of Department Professor Sally Bushell spends a month in China

Earlier this year Professor Sally Bushell returned from a highly successful visit to China on the prestigious “Visiting Overseas Speakers” programme, sponsored by the Chinese Government.  Professor Bushell was based for four weeks at Xiangtan University in Hunan Province and gave a series of lectures on all aspects of English Literature there as well at other Universities in the region.  The trip concluded with Xiangtan University awarding Professor Bushell an Honorary Degree, making her the first overseas visitor to Xiangtan ever to be honoured in this way.
