Judith Shapiro教授简介

夏竹丽(Judith Shapiro)1999年获美利坚大学(American University)国际环境政治学博士学位,拥有亚洲研究和比较文学双硕士学位(加州大学伯克利分校亚洲研究硕士、伊利诺伊大学香槟分校比较文学硕士学位),普林斯顿大学人类学学士学位。现为美利坚大学国际关系学院自然资源和可持续发展硕士项目主任、国际环境学教授。Judith Shapiro是1979年中美关系正常化以来第一批在中国生活的美国人之一,她是美国著名的中国环境问题研究学者,著有《毛泽东对自然的征战》(2001年),《中国的环境挑战》(2012年第一版、2016年第二版)、《革命之子》(1983年)等。

Judith Shapiro is the director of the Masters in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development for the School of International Service at American University. She was one of the first Americans to live in China after U.S.-China relations were normalized in 1979, and taught English at the Hunan Teachers’ College in Changsha, China. She has also taught at Villanova, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Aveiro (Portugal) and the Southwest Agricultural University in Chongqing, China.

Professor Shapiro’s research and teaching focus on global environmental politics and policy, the environmental politics of Asia, and Chinese politics under Mao. She is the author, co-author or editor of seven books, including China’s Environmental Challenges (Polity 2012), Mao’s War against Nature (Cambridge University Press 2001), Son of the Revolution (with Liang Heng, Knopf 1983), After the Nightmare (with Liang Heng, Knopf 1987), Cold Winds, Warm Winds: Intellectual Life in China Today (with Liang Heng, Wesleyan University Press 1987), Debates on the Future of Communism (co-edited with Vladimir Tismaneanu, Palgrave 1991), and, together with her mother Joan Hatch Lennox, Lifechanges: How Women Can Make Courageous Choices (Random House, 1991). Her book Mao’s War against Nature inspired a documentary film, “Waking the Green Tiger” (2011). Her early experiences in China were made into a television feature film starring Melissa Gilbert.

Dr. Shapiro’s latest project — China’s Environmental Challenges (Polity 2012) – has been thoroughly updated and the Second Edition has been published in January 2016. Dr. Shapiro gives lectures on the book’s insights to a wide range of audiences.

Dr. Shapiro earned her Ph.D. from American University’s School of International Service. She holds an M.A. in Asian Studies from the University of California, Berkeley and another M.A. in Comparative Literature from the University of Illinois, Urbana. Her B.A. from Princeton University is in Anthropology and East Asian Studies. Before coming to American University she had a lengthy career as an independent writer and commentator on Chinese politics. She also has extensive experience as a legal interpreter of Mandarin Chinese.
