I am a first year PhD student at Department of History, Warwick, co-supervised by Dr Song-Chuan Chen and Dr Laura Schwartz. My research interests broadly locate in gender history and Chinese history. My current research project is investigating the role of women in Minnan region in Southeast China in the 20th century from a microhistory perspective, for instance, women‘s participation in local economic activities and religious activities against the backdrop of China’s modernisation. The main source of my research will be oral history, religious scripts, cultural performance and rituals.
I have done my MA in World History & Cultures at King's College London and BA in English Language and Literature at Shanghai International Studies University.
