Wang Dan Graudates From Harvard

It took much longer than he thought, but Wang Dan finally graduates from Harvard University with a Ph. D. degree in History and East Asian Languages. The title of his thesis is A Comparative Study of the State Sponsored Violences Across the Taiwan Strait in the 1950s. He will receive his degree in a graduation ceremony to be held on June 5.

Wang Dan says that he plans to spend a year as a visiting scholar at the Oxford University while looking for job opportunities. He will continue to work on the efforts in reevaluating the 1989 movement, the democracy in China, as well as his research area of Taiwan history. He is still hopeful that he could return to China one day.

Congratulations Wang Dan!
