Min Ye, an assistant professor of international relations at Boston University’s College of Arts & Sciences and at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies, has been selected as a Public Intellectuals Program fellow by the National Committee on United States–China Relations for the period 2014 to 2016.
The Public Intellectuals Program (PIP), launched by the committee in 2005, is dedicated to “nurturing the next generation of China specialists who, in the tradition of earlier China hands, have the interest and potential to venture outside of academia to engage with the public and policy community.”
In this round, the competition was particularly tough, according to the PIP advisory committee. In the end, the committee selected “the best and brightest from among the younger generation of American China scholars and professionals, representing a cross-section of concentrations.”
Ye specializes in China politics, comparative political economy, and Asian international relations. In August 2014, she published Diasporas and Foreign Direct Investment in China and India (Cambridge University Press). She also coauthored, with Kent Calder, The Making of Northeast Asia (Stanford University Press, 2010), and she has published articles in various journals and presented papers at professional conferences. She has been a visiting fellow at Waseda University in Japan, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing, John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and Rajiv Gandhi Foundation in New Delhi.
