Biography

Dr. Taiyi Sun, Assistant Professor of the Political Science Department, joined the faculty of Christopher Newport in 2017. He is originally from Hangzhou, China. As a member of Phi Beta Kappa, he received his B.A. in politics & government and business administration from Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin, and M.A. in international affairs from American University School of International Service, Washington D.C., and Ph.D. in political science from Boston University. His research interests include Chinese politics, disaster politics, civil society, and international political economy. More specifically, he studies how major disasters change state-society relations and the level of social capital under authoritarian rule, and how legalization could happen under a “zone of indifference” without meaningful institutionalization.

Taiyi has given talks at the Harvard Fairbank Center, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Graduate School of Education, MIT, Brown University, American University, Beijing Normal University, American Political Science Association, American Sociology Association, American Public Health Association, and has published in subjects on Chinese politics, international political economy, and teaching methodology.
