Profile

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 manuscript, National Empire: Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State, examines these themes against the backdrop of six decades of Han rule along the Muslim borderlands of northwestern China. 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.
