BA Candidate - In Search of Religion, Freedom, and Religious Freedom; Minor: German
Boheng has directed their undergraduate degree at Gallatin to concentrate on contemporary religious political relationships with a research focus on the Sinicization Program in China, its implication on domestic religio-ethnopolitics, and the global politics of religious freedom. Though Boheng’s interests in religion roots in their experiences in high school, they became clear academic pursuits thanks to the interdisciplinary seminar, “What Do We Study When We Study Religion,” with Greg Erickson, which Boheng took in their freshman year. Since then, Boheng gradually fleshed out their concentration in the study of religion by taking courses in Gallatin as well as the wider University. Boheng has also taken advantage of the rich resources at Gallatin to facilitate their independent research projects. They were a member of Dean’s Honors Society in 2018-2019 and have received two Dean's Award for Summer Research Awards, one in 2019 and a second in 2020. These opportunities of fellowship and research have allowed Boheng not only to enrich their academic profile but to grow as a scholar with experiences beyond the classroom setting. Boheng is also the founder of Museum Goers Club, a student organization dedicated to promoting museum accessibility, equity, and justice.
