Photographic Mind - Hive's Dana Rogers is the UK Student Employee of the Year

Most well-functioning campus workplaces at the University of Kentucky have one thing in common: student workers.

Jiang'an Temple

May 2012, members of HIVE and various UK instructors traveled to Shanghai, China to participate in an Appalachian Symposium with members of Shanghai University.

One ancient Chinese structure that was visited by these travelers in China was the Jing'an Temple. Jing'an Temple was built in 247 A.D., and was famous for its "Eight Sights." "Bubbling Well," one of the Eight Sights, was known as "The Six Springs on Earth." A copper bell made in Ming Dynasty is still in the temple today. The Jing'an Temple has a collection of bronze, calligraphy, paintings, and Buddha sculptures from various dynasties up to Western Zhou era.

Yongjia Markets

While China is famous for its booming metropolises of Shanghai and Beijing, many people still live in rural communities. A&S Hive members Dana Rogers and Cheyenne Hohman traveled to Yiwen Chen's hometown in Yongja, China.

Yongja natives have a distinct culture and dialect. In the past, their rural society was isolated from the rest of their country because of the mountainous area on one side of the town and the river surrounding the other side. However, in the past few years, China has created a High Speed Railway system making it easier to travel to these rural landscapes. This video shows a grandmother's daily trip to the markets of Yongja.

Karaoke in China: Ktv

A&S Hive members Cheyenne Hohman and Dana Rogers visited Yiwen Chen's home in Yongja, Wenzhou. Wenzhou was a prosperous foreign treaty port, which remains well-preserved today. It is situated in a mountainous region and, as a result, has been isolated for most of its history from the rest of the country, making the local culture and language very distinct not only from the rest of China but from neighboring areas as well.
