My name is Dr. Emily M. Matson and I am an Assistant Teaching Professor at Georgetown University with a joint appointment in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service's Asian Studies Program and the College of Arts and Sciences' History Department. I received my PhD in Modern Chinese History from the University of Virginia in fall 2020. I am a passionate historian and educator, and have taught a variety of courses in modern East Asian History at American University, the College of William and Mary, and Randolph College. Last year, I was a Wilson Center China fellow, and I am currently a research affiliate at the University of Virginia's East Asia Center. My research interests include Northeastern China (东北), historical memory, museums, and China's World War II.
