My name is Maura Elizabeth Cunningham, and I’m a historian and writer based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I write about a variety of topics—books, pop culture, travel, and feminism among them—but the majority of my work focuses on China. I hold a PhD in Chinese history from the University of California, Irvine and have spent a great deal of time in China: I’ve lived in Beijing, Nanjing, and Shanghai, and also traveled widely in the country.
