Lingxuan Liang is a master’s student in the Near Eastern and Judaic Studies program. Born and raised in China, she became aware of the lingering anti-Semitic prejudice among her peers while studying in Atlanta in 2017. After completing a BA in History with a minor in Jewish studies at Boston University, Ling is excited to continue pursuing her education in Jewish history and modern Hebrew at Brandeis University. Her research interest lies in different narratives of the Shoah during the post-WWII era, namely how they continuously contribute to shaping Jewish identities in America and Israel. After class, she is a comic artist who engages in social justice activism and intercultural communications with communities in the Greater Boston area.
