Teaching Interests

I teach courses covering the history of modern and premodern China, Japan and Korea. In addition to survey courses tracing continuities and change in East Asia, I also teach courses on cultural history, foreign relations, women and material culture. In all my courses we work intensively with primary source materials (in translation) and use discussion and group work to come to a better understanding of East Asia's varied culture and history.


Research, Scholarship or Creative/Artistic Interests

I am a historian of premodern China, with a particular interest in medieval China’s foreign relations. My current research project is based on my doctoral dissertation and traces the development of the Sinosphere in the first millennium, when the foundations were laid for what we now know as “East Asia.”
