Justin Jacobs

Assistant Professor
Department of History

  • Justin Jacobs is a historian of modern China. His research concerns the legacy and inheritance of Chinese empire during the twentieth century. His first book, Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State (University of Washington Press, forthcoming), examines these themes against the backdrop of five decades of Han rule along the Muslim borderlands of northwestern China, including Nationalist efforts to represent Xinjiang from Taiwan after 1949. He is currently working on a new book project, “The Compensations of Plunder: Foreign Explorers in Modern China” (http://dryhten.wordpress.com), which aims to reframe Western archaeological expeditions to China within a dual context of global and domestic Chinese history.
