Professor Jennifer Rudolph's main area of research is modern Chinese political history. She has written a book on institutional change in late imperial China and is currently writing a book on the urban history of Taipei. She is particularly interested in topics that concern national identity on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
Professor Rudolph incorporates her research into her teaching, because she says doing so helps students realize that scholarship should be part of ongoing debate, and "it's just fun to merge teaching and research." For instance, Rudolph's work on a 17th-century Chinese pirate and how he is part of political debate in both Taiwan and China today helps her teach about nationalism. Her teaching interests are broad and include the political, social, and cultural history of China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea, as well as women’s history, identity formation, and imperialism.
