Yaqin is glad to join the family of history and political science at Meredith since this August. Born in a small city in China shespent seven years in NanjingUniversity to earn her Bachelor and Master degrees in history. After six years in the East Asian Studies Department at Princeton University, she earned her doctorate degree in Modern Chinese History in June 2012. Her dissertation examines “bandit-suppression” campaigns in Manchukuo, a so-called puppet state of Japan, between 1932 and 1945. The courses she teaches currently include “The World in the Twentieth Century” and “Introduction to Asian History” but she’s also interested in teaching courses in East Asia, modern China, as well as Sino-Japanese relations since the late nineteenth century. As a newcomer to Raleigh, Yaqin’s non-academic goal for this year is to keep fit because the fried foods here are sooooo yummy!
Courses: The World in the Twentieth Century; Introduction to Asian History; Modern China
