Victor Louzon holds his PhD from Sciences Po. He received his undergraduate training at SciencesPo, the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales(Paris), and the University of British Columbia (Vancouver). He was a visiting graduate student at Qinghua (Beijing), NCCU (Taibei) and was a Fox Fellow and Fulbright doctoral student at Yale University. Professor Louzon originally specialized in modern Chinese history, but his research interests now extend to war and political violence in East Asia in the 20th century, and to contemporary tensions in the region. His PhD dissertation deals with the 1947 “February 28th” rebellion against Chinese Kuomintang rule in Taiwan, considered as an aftershock of the Sino-Japanese War.
