Welcome! This is Yuzhou.

I am a historian working on the intellectual history and history of religions in early medieval China (200-600). My dissertation project examines the proliferated accounts of child prodigies during this period. This study hopes to shed light on how social prestige, religious authority and gendered age norms were produced in a pre-modern East Asian context.

I joined Princeton University in the Department of East Asian Studies in 2015 and became a Ph.D. candidate in 2018. My three fields of general exams are: (1) Early to Medieval Chinese Intellectual History; (2) Chinese Religions; (3) Early Christianity. Previously, I received my M.A. and B.A. in Religious Studies from Peking University. You can find my CV here.
