Within this research project, I am in charge of the overall organization and planning. In terms of research, I conduct the case study on Beijing Municipality with a focus on case revisions in different institutions. A first study of a mid-level people’s court has been completed. Currently, I work on a study of administrative case revisions in a major Beijing steel factory. In later stages of the project, I will also work on theoretical and comparative issues to analyze the status of China’s post-1978 changes in the context of international debates on “transitional justice”.

I am responsible for managing all aspects of the project database, including server administration, programming, data entry and analysis, and extensions. Additionally, I help with project-related research and English translations of key documents. I am also currently developing a research project that examines the rehabilitation of sports leaders and athletes after the Cultural Revolution.

Outside of this project, I am working on a book manuscript based on my doctoral dissertation (UC Santa Cruz, 2014) that traces the political significance of sport to the Chinese socialist state during the Mao years and its importance in shaping transnational networks. Related publications and presentations can be found on my website.

As a member of the Maoist Legacy Project, I contribute to the collective research by taking part of the digitization of documents and providing the database with content; by collecting and evaluating data from provincial records regarding the Cultural Revolution and the subsequent transition; and by assisting in the organization of project related events.

My individual research explores the convergence of political, legal, and economic rationales in the transitional period following the Cultural Revolution through the case of the former capitalists of Shanghai.

Within the project, I am one of the database editors in charge of uploading and editing documents. In my day-to-day work, I take part in the collection of statistics on the reversal of unjust, false, and wrong cases in the provinces.

Additionally, I proofread Chinese documents and books that will be uploaded to our database. Currently, I am also teaching a graduate course covering readings from and about the Cultural Revolution.

My individual research consists of a case study of Jiangsu province. Through oral history interviews and consulting archival sources, I will explore the particularities of the transition in Jiangsu following the Cultural Revolution.
