Shan Lee ’16
Albright Fellow 2016

Shan Lee
Shan is a senior majoring in English and Economics.

She is currently writing her English thesis on John Milton’s Paradise Lost; her project aims to link our current environmental crisis to its roots in the seventeenth century by exploring the literary and cultural attitudes towards ecological upheavals in Early Modern England as they appear in Milton’s poetry. During the summer of 2015, Shan interned at Fundación Poder Ciudadano in Argentina, where she composed reports on illicit financial flows, lobbying regulations, and the FIFA corruption scandal, which were used in global campaigns against corporate and political corruption. She also spent three weeks in Spain as part of Wellesley’s Wintersession in Barcelona program in January 2015. On campus, Shan is the Editor-in-Chief of GenerAsians Magazine, Wellesley’s only publication dedicated to providing a platform to discuss social, cultural, and political issues relevant to the Asian/Asian American community. She also assisted Prof. Koichi Hagimoto from the Spanish Department in the production of his forthcoming book about trans-pacific encounters and the diverse aspects of the relationship between Asia and Latin America. She has a professional proficiency in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Shan’s goal upon graduation is to work in an international business setting before pursuing law school.
