My ongoing research focuses on religious policy and conflict in the People’s Republic of China. More specifically, I focus on Christian resistance in post-1949 China. My recent work, Church Militant: Bishop Kung and Catholic Resistance in Communist Shanghai explores church/state conflict in a time of mounting tension between the newly victorious Chinese Communist Party and Shanghai’s well-organized Catholic community. This work investigates the impact early party campaigns had on one particular social sector, and questions the received wisdom as to whether the 1950s were such a “golden age” for China after all. In addition, I also teach survey courses in Premodern China, Modern China, and Modern East Asia. I am also developing a course on the History of Christianity in China.
