About Us 关于我们

HNC网, or HNC Net, strives to provide useful information for students of the Center and create a dynamic platform on which students may publish articles, commentary, and other media that reflect the unique perspective they have living, studying, and interacting in Nanjing, China.

HNC网 is not affiliated with the Johns Hopkins University-Nanjing University Center for Chinese and American Studies 南京大学-约翰斯·霍普金斯大学中美文化研究中心. The two official web pages for the Center are located here: Hopkins-Nanjing Center (English version 英文版) and 中美中心 (Chinese version 中文版). As an independent publication, opinions expressed by contributors to HNC网 in no way represent any entity besides those contributors. Particular points of view expressed by contributors are not necessarily those held by HNC网.

Please help us create a lively environment for news and commentary about the topics that interest you: post comments, send in articles, photos, whatever you think might be of interest. Visit the contact page for submission information.

HNC网 emphasizes the importance of dialogue and feedback with its readers, and as such most work posted on the site can be commented upon. To reduce spam, all comments go through a moderation period where they are reviewed before being posted. Writing a comment requires a name and an email address. Though your name does not have to be real, we respectively ask that your email address be so, as it will be how we communicate with you regarding your comment (i.e. if it is currently under review or published, or if someone else has commented on your comment). Your email address will never be shared.

Comments must engage the posted article in a relevant manner or in some way add to the discussion, and not be offensive or inappropriate. HNC网 reserves the right to delete comments that do not follow these guidelines. Comments that are published are not edited in any way.
