Candidate – Master of Arts, Regional Studies of East Asia, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

This past spring Ms. Huimin Chen received her Bachelor of Arts in History from UCLA. At Harvard, Huimin’s studies will focus on the history of late imperial China. More specifically, she will “examine the material culture and social meanings manifested by building private libraries in Ming and Qing dynasties.” Additionally, Huimin hopes her studies into the social networking amongst these book collectors will prepare her for a doctoral research project on the historic patterns of book circulation.
