Recent Asian Studies Program News
Professor Wang Guojun (PhD, Yale University), a specialist in Qing-period Chinese literature and theater, will be joining the Asian Studies faculty as Assistant Professor this fall semester. He'll be offering a range of courses on Chinese literature and culture, including both survey courses covering long historical periods and more focused, higher-level courses on particular periods, genres, and works of literature. I encourage you to get to know him once he arrives on campus and to take as many courses with him as your schedule permits! You will find him to be not only a brilliant scholar and teacher but also a warm, approachable human being.
