Sally Chengji Xing 邢承吉 (PhD, Columbia University) is an associate professor of US history at Nankai University, a visiting postdoctoral fellow of the Max Planck Institute of History of Science (Berlin) and was previously a visiting fellow at the University of Göttingen in the project “Worldmaking from a Global Perspective: A Dialogue with China.”. She is interested in looking at US history from transnational and global perspectives. Her book manuscript (in progress), “‘Pacific Crossings’: The China Foundation and a Negotiated Translation of American Science to China, 1913-1949,” examines how and to what extent American intellectuals in the first half of the twentieth century influenced the development of Chinese science. Her multi-archival research in China and the United States was funded by the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations (SHAFR), the Tokyo Foundation for Policy Research, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, Rockefeller Archive Center, the Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine and by other graduate research fellowships at Columbia University in the City of New York. Her long-term research explores Sino-American intellectual history in transnational approaches, from early twentieth century up until the late 1960s.
