Annie Hsu

DPhil in International Relations

I am a DPhil in International Relations candidate at Nuffield College, University of Oxford, supervised by Professor Edward Keene and Professor Todd Hall. My research examines China in international society in the early twentieth century, particularly China's diplomatic engagement in the League of Nations and China's contestation of sovereignty and international order. My broader research interests include the history of international organisations, historical international order, and the history of modern China. My research is generously funded by Nuffield College and the Clarendon Scholarship.

I am from Toronto, Canada. Prior to the DPhil, I graduated from the MPhil in International Relations with distinction at Oxford. Before coming to Oxford, I received a BA in International Relations and in History, summa cum laude and with distinction in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania in the United States, where I was a Phi Beta Kappa inductee. I am professionally proficient in Mandarin.

Outside academia, I previously interned in the Office of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs and I worked as an advisor to Canada’s Ambassador for Women, Peace and Security.
