Re: SUBSCRIBER SELF-INTRODUCTIONS (your responses requested)


Although I would consider myself a historian of the United States, my research is primarily focused on foreign relations and expatriates (especially in relation to China). My current research project (which I intend to expand into a dissertation) is on American expatriates in the People's Republic of China from 1949 until 1972 and conceptions of citizenship.

I will be entering the History PhD program at Boston University in the fall.

Re: SUBSCRIBER SELF-INTRODUCTIONS (your responses requested)



I'm Daniel Leese, historian and sinologist working at the University of Freiburg in Germany. My research interests cover Qing history to the present, with a strong focus on PRC history. I have previously published "Mao cult: Rhetoric in Ritual in China's Cultural Revolution" (Cambridge UP) and edited a reference work, which some of you might know (Brill's Encyclopedia of China, Leiden 2009).

Re: What foreigners visiting Mao's China said and heard

This is a wonderful topic. Thank you for the resources listed.
Apologies for the shameless institutional self-promotion, but our series Assignment:China focuses on the work of journalists for American news organizations and is obviously related to the matter of "what foreigners said about China." The series begins with the KMT/CCP civil war and will eventually run to the 21st century. We've thus far screened

Civil War (late 1940s)
China Watching (1950s-60s)
The Week that Changed the World (ping pong diplomacy & the Nixon visit)

Re: SUBSCRIBER SELF-INTRODUCTIONS (your responses requested)

To add my intro, I am sort of an interloper on the list, because my primary research interests are in the 19th and early 20th centuries, specifically in missionary publications in Chinese in the late Qing. I completed my PhD at Yale in History in 1996, and published Fuzhou Protestants and the Making of a Modern China, 1857-1927 in 2001. Before that I did a MA at UBC and a BA in Asian Studies at ANU.

Re: SUBSCRIBER SELF-INTRODUCTIONS (your responses requested)


It seems that I am the first Chinese trying to give self-introduction here. Hope that my humble introduction may attract more Chinese subscribers to reply, if the old saying 抛砖引玉 really works.

My name is Li Kunrui 李坤睿, a doctoral candidate in history in Peking University, under the direction of Prof. Yang Kuisong.
