Re: SUBSCRIBER SELF-INTRODUCTIONS (your responses requested)

Dear All,

My name is Chaohua Wang (王超華). This is my response to subscriber self introduction. My apologies for this delayed response, partly due to technical difficulties with my old computer (now a new one is purchased).

First of all, I would like to join the others to say a big "Thank You" to the organizers of this list. Many of you must be gathering in Philadelphia now. I wish you a lively, fruitful reunion there.

Re: More on foreigners in China: Who were these individuals?

I also thought of Mark Selden and today decided it was easiest just to ask... but the answer is not conclusive!

Hi Sigrid,

The name is one of the variants of mine and the subject is not so far from what I do.
Though I don’t recall three pieces on rural mechanization.

Hope you’re well.



Re: SUBSCRIBER SELF-INTRODUCTIONS (your responses requested)

I am emeritus in the History Department at Eastern Connecticut State University, where I taught Chinese, Japanese, and modern world history. I did my graduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying with Mauri Meisner and Lin Yü-sheng. My research is in modern Chinese intellectual history, much of my work focusing on the thought of Liang Shuming. I am particularly interested in the imagination of the countryside and its relation with the city, in conceptions of time, and in issues of the moral sources of social solidarity, engaged from a comparative perspective.
