My undergraduate honors thesis began in the spring semester of 2009. Through the help and guidance of my dedicated departmental adviser, the thesis grew into a work of over seventy pages that I was extremely proud of. Research began in the spring of 2009 and continued throughout the upcoming summer. Historical research included utilizing Chinese web forums, Chinese news articles that I worked to translate, international English-language news articles, and scholarly research primarily focusing on the Chinese Cultural Revolution, an event that I made ties to. Major writing began and finished in the subsequent fall semester, with the thesis defense taking place right before the end of term that December.
