Laura Pearce is the Program Coordinator, Fulbright Scholar and Fulbright-Hays Programs at The Ohio State University. Laura's topics of research have included how the folklore of one culture is presented by another, modern adaptations of old folktales, and medieval Chinese travel literature. She's particularly interested in how Central Asia is represented in China, and how China is represented in the United States. And more informally, in young adult retellings of fairy tales.
