I'm a Professor of History, with a specialty on modern China, who teaches in the Department of History and American Studies at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. My current research focuses on childhood, play, and material culture in early twentieth century China. In teaching and curriculum development, I work on these themes as well as topics in gender, cinema, and digital studies.
