Professor Weiss’ research interests include Chinese politics and international relations, nationalism, and social protest. Before joining the Yale faculty, she founded FACES, the Forum for American/Chinese Exchange at Stanford University. She teaches courses on anti-Americanism in world politics, Chinese foreign policy, and state-society relations in post-Mao China. We talk with her about her recent paper on anti-foreign protests in China.
