Dr Rana Mitter Awarded Leverhulme Grant
Commenting on the project, Dr Mitter said, This project is possible thanks to the many changes that have taken place in China over the last quarter of a century, such as the opening of new archives, that have allowed more discussion and study of this period. These opportunities and the need for the West to engage with China in the present and the future mean that this is the ideal time to initiate this research. The project is unique in providing a long-term perspective on the impact of the Sino-Japanese conflict and in viewing the development of modern China primarily through that conflict.`
