MGA honored to host Dr. Allan Wu of Minjiang University

#MGA is honored to host Dr. Allan Wu of Minjiang University in China on a one-year visiting professorship while he researches Ming Dynasty intellectual history. These photos show him visiting MGA professor Dr. George L. Israel’s historical methods class.

The historical methods class introduces history majors to how scholarly historical work is written. Dr. Wu explained his research on John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, and how the Scottish missionary William Chalmers Burns brought this work to China in the 19th century and translated it into Chinese.
