Here’s a little bit about Kun, one of the students in the first DAMES graduate program cohort!
Tell us about yourself!
I am Kun Meng, an incoming graduate of UNC at Chapel Hill. I am from the People’s Republic of China, a beautiful country which is growing and flourishing in its own way. I obtained my bachelor’s degree (BFA) in Sha’anxi Normal University and my master’s degree (MFA) in East China Normal University. During both experiences, I have majored in studies of traditional Chinese painting. After graduating from ECNU, I engaged myself to be a volunteer of Shanghai Library. Plus, I got a job as a teacher of Asian culture!
What program track did you choose?
I chose the Chinese track to be my program, specifically transcultural and political studies of ancient China.
What are you hoping to gain from your experiences here in DAMES and at UNC?
I think I will improve my ability of writing and analyzing in this program. Also, I hope I can acquire the knowledge of research methods of Western countries, to examine and judge the ancient Chinese cultures from a different perspective.
