Rebecca's research interests lie in the fields of modern Chinese political, social and cultural history, with a particular focus on the development of the political and popular cultural sphere in the 1950s and 1960s. Through the lens of an analysis of the production and distribution of lianhunahua (serial picture stories), a ubiquitous form of visual culture, her current research explores how Party-State agencies, artists and distributors interacted and the ways popular culture mediums were published and censored at a grassroots level.
Since completing her ESRC funded PhD in modern Chinese history at the University of Nottingham in 2016, Rebecca has lectured at the Universities of York (2017-2018) and King's College London (2018-2020). In September 2020, she joined the History Department at Nottingham as a Teaching Associate and currently teaches first-year undergraduate modules of a research-led, comparative and methodological nature and a more specialised module on late Imperial and Republican Chinese political, social, and cultural history. Rebecca is also currently a Visiting Fellow in Modern Chinese History at King's College London.
