Please join us for a seminar and lecture on China since Tianamen with Harvard's Rowena Xiaoqing He (何晓清).
Dr. He's research interests focus on citizenship, human rights, and democratization in China. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto and conducted her postdoctoral research at Harvard's Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies. She spent eight years working with political prisoners and student leaders of the 1989 Tiananmen Movement and recently finished her book manuscript Romance and Revolution: Tiananmen Voices from Exile. Her postdoctoral project Identifying with a `Rising China’?: Overseas Chinese Student Nationalism examines the roots and development of nationalism among Chinese students in the post-Tiananmen era.
Dr. He’s seminars on the 1989 Tiananmen Movement and its aftermath have earned her the Harvard University Certificate of Teaching Excellence for three consecutive years. She has taught for Harvard’s Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, Harvard’s Freshman Seminar Program, the Harvard Extension School, and the Harvard Summer School. In addition to her scholarly work, Dr. He has published in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, and in other general media in Chinese and English. She has been interviewed by the Harvard Gazette, Maclean’s, CBC, CTV, BBC, NBC, Radio Free Asia, and Radio Canada International.
