An assistant professor of history at St. John’s University, Professor Miller is visiting Yale as an Agrarian Studies Program Fellow. He researches conflicts over wood resources and the development of private institutions for production forestry and woodland conservation in early modern China. In particular, he is researching the role that graves played as focal points in conflicts over the woodland environment, and the impact of changing tax policies on the markets for wood and timber.
