"Since I first met Dr. Yifan Shi, he has revealed himself to be curious, critical, and committed to openness and transparency. Yifan is a skilled researcher and an extraordinarily productive writer. He is an up-and-coming scholar in the history of  China sincce 1949 whose insights about youth subcultures and leisure shed light on the bigger question of how the Communist Party's management of daily life has contributed to its extraordinary staying power."

History Doctor in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

My name is Yifan Shi and I am a PhD candidate at the Department of History.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

Because SFU has a vigorous program in history and mentors are great.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

I am interested in social history of the People's Republic of China.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

The relatively small number of cohorts means that I can get access to academic resources more easily.

HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR-FUNDED AWARDS? IF SO, PLEASE TELL US WHICH ONES AND A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE AWARDS HAVE IMPACTED YOUR STUDIES AND/OR RESEARCH.
