Niping Yan received her B.A. in Literature (2014) and M.A. in History (2017) from Peking University. She is broadly interested in the history of Sino-European encounters from the sixteenth century to the eighteenth century, and specializes in Sino-Hispanic interactions. Her dissertation examines the compilation of the Boxer Codex, an illustrated Spanish codex produced in the late sixteenth-century Philippines, to illustrate the problems of knowledge acquisition and production, cultural translation, religious encounters, and colonial conflicts in the early modern world.
