Nina Duthie recently completed her dissertation titled “Origins, Ancestors, and Imperial Authority in Early Northern Wei Historiography” in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University. Her research focuses on the cultural history of the Northern Dynasties in China, with an emphasis on the Tuoba Xianbei founders of the Northern Wei state (386-534 C.E.) and their representation in historical texts. More broadly, she is interested in issues of ritual and the writing of history throughout the imperial period. In ALC, she teaches Chinese Civilization, Classical Chinese, and Traditional Chinese Narrative and Fiction.
