The Team at the Heart of MMLA

July 1, 2014

Originally from Canton, Ohio, our Chinese Dorm Head Joseph has recently graduated from Reed College where he studied Chinese literature and language. This fall, he will enroll as a graduate student in the Chinese literature department at National Taiwan University. Joseph discovered his love for the Chinese language at the age of sixteen as a one-year Rotary exchange student in Taipei. Since then, he has returned to Taiwan numerous times as a translator, teacher and student. Later this summer Joseph will collaborate with a Reed College professor to translate the travel journal of a Chinese official who visited Taiwan in the 1850s. Joseph is leading a team of 5 Residential Assistants in Lyman Hall.
