About

Joshua Pine has worked for the past two years with Professor Karrie Koesel analyzing trends in Chinese political education since the 1950s. Specifically, Pine has assisted with the translation and coding of the political questions on China’s college entrance exam (gaokao) in order to better understand how patriotic education is used as a tool to promote legitimacy in an authoritarian regime.

Pine has also conducted independent research examining how eco-tourism can serve as a model for rural development in China. This research has been supported with funds from the Kellogg Institute’s Experiencing the World Fellowship (ETW), the Center for Social Concern’s International Summer Service Learning Program (ISSLP), the Liu Institute’s Kenneth Kwak Memorial Scholarship and research grants, as well as the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship with support from the Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE).
