JENNIFER LIN '20
SHANXI AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY
Jenn Lin ‘20 majored in Art History and Creative Writing with an East Asian Studies minor. Her work as a Residential Assistant in Asia House and as an organizer for several A/PID cultural organizations and events such as AS I AM, Pan-Asian Committee, and Asia America Art Collective sparked her interest in community-centered activism, education, and growth.
In January of 2019, Jenn received an In-Asia Grant that allowed her to create a digital zine that documented the experiences of LGBTQ+ activists, artists, and academics in Taiwan following a rise in opposition toward the legalization of same-sex marriage. The zine is called Crystal Bridges and can be accessed online. In addition to these activities, Jenn volunteered as a docent for the Allen Memorial Art Museum and worked for Oberlin College’s Special Collections as a book preservation technician and letterpress assistant. She intends to continue to pursue her interest in the arts, reproducible media, and museums while she is in Taigu.
