Since October 2020, Henrike Rudolph is an assistant professor at the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Göttingen. Trained in Sinology and Political Science, she completed her Ph.D. at Hamburg University and Fudan University, Shanghai, in 2017. Rudolph worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Chair of Contemporary Chinese Studies at Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg. Before coming to Göttingen, she held an interim professorship at the University of Heidelberg.
Rudolph’s research interests lie in the transcultural exchange of knowledge and skills, education thought, as well as network approaches to social and political history, with a focus on twentieth-century China. She has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in Sinology as well as Asian and Transcultural Studies.
In her current project, she explores the development of intersecting academic and political networks of Chinese scientists and experts since the Republican period in their national and international dimensions. It combines the study of archival and contemporary sources with theories and digital tools from the field of historical network analysis.
