Courtney Rong Fu
I am a Ph.D candidate in the dual-title program in the Department of History and the Asian Studies Program. My interest is in socio-cultural history of late imperial China with a special focus on scholarly and literati activities. I am also a teaching assistant for World History classes, which is a critical training for my teaching skills and imbues my work with a global perspective. My dissertation will explore the survival status of Cheng-Chu Confucianism during the mid to late Ming period.
