Biography

A historian of China, Southeast Asia, and overseas Chinese communities, Oiyan has developed her research interests in the study of empires and diaspora while pursuing her Ph.D. in History at Cornell University and Master’s and undergraduate degrees in Chinese Studies at Leiden University.
 
 
Her work focuses on inter-imperial rivalry and the role of overseas Chinese in shaping and reconfiguring notions of subjecthood, race, nationality, and territory. Her dissertation contextualizes the construction of a pan-Chinese nation, European rule, and overseas Chinese empowerment in colonial Southeast Asia. Focusing on the role of overseas Chinese in changing state policies, she examines how the Chinese under Dutch colonial rule transformed their status from stateless subjects to Chinese nationals and Dutch colonial subjects. Currently she is developing a research project on Chinese and European views of political legitimacy over Southeast Asia.
