Happy new year, readers! Wishing you a healthy and happy 2022!
I recently gave a book talk virtually at the Center of East Asian Studies at the University of Southern California. It was a great pleasure to be able to talk about my pirate book with the community of USC. Sincere thanks to Professor Sonya Lee at USC for hosting the event and for Professor Hang Xing at Brandeis University for being my discussant. Here is the link, if you are interested in pirate stories in late Ming China. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k7CPzzttc4&t=10s
