Emily Hill is a specialist on the history of China. She speaks Chinese fluently and bases her research in Chinese-language source materials. Her main area of research has been the political economy of China's Republican period, particularly 1931-37. She is also examining the origins of the war between China and Japan of 1937 to 1945 and the political economy of postwar Taiwan. Her interest in agricultural policy in the past has led to her new project on reforestation in contemporary China.
