About the Editor

me-london.jpgAfter teaching English for nearly forty years, Susan Thurin can’t resist editing an interesting manuscript and adding pages to her drawers full of journals, fiction, and criticism. Her writing is influenced by teaching and travel, a hybrid that took root when she was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Liberia and grew during years teaching in England, China, Sweden, and during many years teaching eager college students in Wisconsin. Her books Victorian Travelers and the Opening of China, 1842-1907 and Nineteenth-Century Travels 1835-1910: The Far East study the accounts of English men and women whose writings about their sojourns in China and Japan influenced public opinion of those countries.
