Tyler Brent ’15 Senior Profile: Chinese Studies

brent_tylerThe MLL was extremely encouraging and supportive of my endeavors to explore my interests and to realize my dreams. The faculty in the Chinese program in particular and in the MLL department in general was instrumental in helping me to intern in China for two summers, study abroad in Spain for a semester, and conduct research in Beijing for my Honors Thesis. With the continuous help of my dynamic thesis adviser, Assistant Professor of Chinese Studies Calvin Hui, I was able to conduct research for my honors thesis on a topic that involves both my personal and academic interest while on a fully funded Honors Fellowship.

The strength and guidance of this burgeoning program has led me to present my research at a Queer Studies conference at Ohio University and at the Asian Studies on the Pacific Coast conference at the University of the Pacific.
