Jennifer Lindsay


Senior Jennifer Lindsay is more than comfortable traversing the globe. She is a Pembroke, New Hampshire, native; however, after spending several childhood years with her family in Taiwan, Jen has always felt deeply connected to Chinese culture. A member of the University Honors Program, she majors in both international affairs and studio art with a minor in Asian studies. She will graduate in May with a bachelor of arts in studio art and international affairs. An International Research Opportunities Program (IROP) grant from the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research supported her summer research into censorship of artistic expression in China. Her goal was to help Americans better understand the intricacies of Chinese culture. Jen, a talented artist herself, prefers oil painting, citing figures and portraits as her favorite subjects. She is also an avid thespian, taking part in UNH’s social change improv group WildACTS since freshman year, in addition to other theatrical groups. In the future, Jen plans to pursue studies in art and international relations, perhaps continuing her research in academia or working in curating and program development.
