Hi everyone, I’m from China, Jiangsu Province, Changzhou city. I’m currently a senior, majoring in computer science and mathematics. During the pandemic, I was back home in China. 13 hours time difference was such a painful experience. It’s so nice to be back at the campus to continue with my undergraduate journey.

In this class, I would love to learn more about China’s modern history and arts. I think modern China is full of darkness, struggle, and pain. But at the same time, modern China is also an important turning point for China, standing on the world stage. This special era helped China grow, refresh, and learn from others, instead of just being complacent about the past and escaping from reality. I would also love to improve my writing, observation, and critical thinking skills from this class.

Nice to meet you all!

Welcome to the course! While my research focus is on the archaeology of early China, I spent a lot of time in grad school studying modern and contemporary Chinese art so that I could teach this course one day, and now it’s one of my favorites. This is my 11th year teaching at Union. I’m originally from Chicago, but have lived in Hong Kong and China, and spent many years in Pittsburgh for grad school. I also travel to France almost every year to visit family. Above is a photo of me doing a cartwheel in the Forbidden City, Beijing, when I was about your age.
