MA Thesis: “Within China, Without China: The Sprout of Local Identity in Hong Kong, 1966-1970”
My research interests include nationalism, identity formation, and social movement in the twentieth century, with particular attention to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Okinawa, and China. I am also interested in themes such as Sino-Japanese relations, (anti-)colonialism, and global connections. My dissertation explores the dispute over the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea since the 1970s.
