Political and Intellectual history of Modern China, Sino-Japanese Relations, History of Socialism and Socialist Movements
The diversification of historical studies through different geographical scales and multiple modernities in the past three decades has not only added new dimensions to the research of modern China, but has also revitalised the studies of the Chinese intellectuals and political leaders during the Republican era. My research on the Chinese Youth Party belongs to the latter through the examinations of its transnational origin and local development as well as its visions for state construction, which different from those of the Nationalist and Communist Parties. I have accomplished much of this project during my dissertation research at the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently revising it into a book manuscript, planning to publish it within a few years.
