From May 12-22, Taylor Goodwin ’16, an international business major, traveled to Asia with the field study class, A Journey to the Middle Kingdom: Experiencing China in Transformation. She brought along a stuffed fox and photographed it in locations around the country. 

Professor and Olin Library archivist Wenxian Zhang led the 10-day trip to Shanghai and Beijing, which introduced students to modern Chinese society and its traditional values. 

Goodwin posed the fox with the Temple of Heaven, on a throne in the Forbidden City, and atop The Great Wall. The fox even escaped being lunch for a Chinese guardian lion.
