James Carter, Ph.D.
My research and teaching interests focus on the interactions between China and the West during the modern period, focusing not on state-to-state relations, but the actions of individuals. This emphasis on individual actions frames the way I think about history, which is itself the interaction between broad, overarching themes and people's daily lives.
