Matt Van DuynThe UW Department of History shared the news of their newly minted PhD, Matthew Van Duyn! Dr. Van Duyn successfully defended his PhD, “Building Socialist Shanghai: Workers‘ New Villages and the Socialist Right to the City” on Friday, May 15th. This was their first entirely virtual defense via Zoom, but reports are that Dr. Van Duyn was not phased for a moment and presented a fabulous defense where he passed with honors. Congratulations to Matt!
