Dr. Ken Swope, Senior Fellow of the Dale Center, was recently offered a prestigious Visiting Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. The Institute has welcomed such visiting scholars and full-time faculty as Albert Einstein, Clifford Geertz, George Kennan, and J. Robert Oppenheimer. Less than ten percent of the advanced scholars who apply for a fellowship with the Institute are invited to Princeton. Dr. Swope will be working in the School of Historical Studies, where he will conduct research on his latest book “On the Trail of the Yellow Tiger: War, Trauma, and Social Dislocation in Southwest China during the Ming-Qing Transition.” The archives and libraries around Princeton house one of the world’s greatest collections of sources on Asian History. Dr. Swope will also get to work alongside other scholars of international repute in his field, the history of the Ming Dynasty in China.
