Jenny Huangfu Day

Jenny Huangfu Day 皇甫峥峥 is Associate Professor of History and the Francis Young Tang ‘61 Chair in China Studies at Skidmore College. She obtained her PhD in History from the University of California San Diego in 2012 and her BA from the University of Washington in 2007. She has published works in intellectual, diplomatic, and legal history of late imperial and modern China.

Her forthcoming monograph examines international law and transnational fugitives in modern China. It examines the role of Sino-foreign diplomats, jurists, and political actors in creating the boundaries of legitimate political actions. It tells the story about how the Qing and its Republican successor states negotiated for the right to declare their enemies, define their crimes, and gain juridical sovereignty over transborder rebels from the 1860s to the 1930s.

Her next book project will explore the politicization of history in modern China. It seeks to understand how policymakers, bureaucrats, intellectuals, and grassroots educators understood the goals of historical education from the late Qing to the post-Mao period.
