The Liberal Arts division is excited to have Dr. Yingyi Ma from Syracuse University join us for a presentation and question & answer session on December 3, 2021 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm. Dr. Ma will share her research, connected to higher education and inclusive pedagogy in the context of international students from China. Dr. Ma has recently published a book entitled Ambitious and Anxious, detailing her work with Chinese undergrads.
From Columbia University Press:
"In Ambitious and Anxious, the sociologist Yingyi Ma offers a multifaceted analysis of this new wave of Chinese students based on research in both Chinese high schools and American higher-education institutions. Ma argues that these students’ experiences embody the duality of ambition and anxiety that arises from transformative social changes in China."
From Syracuse University's website, "Yingyi Ma is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Director of Asian/Asian American Studies. She is the Provost Faculty Fellow on internationalization at Syracuse University, where she leads and supports culturally responsive pedagogy and programs for international education and partnership. She received her Ph.D. in sociology from Johns Hopkins University in 2007."
