Emily Baum (University of California, Irvine) and Denise Y. Ho (Yale University) present the second annual webinar series, Doing Chinese History (in a New Era). Designed for—but not exclusive to—graduate students and junior scholars in Chinese history and Chinese studies, these webinars aim to address persistent challenges in research and professional development.

Webinar 1, “Pivoting to a New Research Topic,” features four speakers who are completing or have recently completed a thesis or dissertation, and who have had to adapt their topics because of changing research conditions. Facing restrictions on research travel and archival access, each of the speakers have modified their research agenda and made use of local and digital sources. This webinar addresses the challenge of the “research pivot,” offering advice and experience from current and recent graduate students.
