Bio:  

Mark E. Frank comes to Fulbright from Yale University, where he was the CEAS Postdoctoral Associate in the Environmental Humanities and an affiliate fellow of the Agrarian Studies Program. At Fulbright, he offers courses on East Asian history as well as environmental history and the global humanities. Mark fell in love with the rich history of China during an undergrad study abroad semester and has since lived in Beijing, Qingdao, Chengdu, and other parts of China for a cumulative five years.   His most rewarding experiences as a college student at the University of North Carolina involved close collaboration with faculty on topics of mutual interest, and he hopes to “pay it forward” with his own students.
