Professor Pomeranz developed his interest in China as a student at Cornell University, where he received a BA in history in 1980. A course on China prompted his interest in studying comparisons between societies. He became a graduate student of China at Yale University, where he studied under pre-eminent China historian Jonathan Spence. Pomeranz joined the faculty at the University of California, Irvine after receiving his PhD in 1988, and moved to the U of Chicago in July, 2012.
The Confucius Institute at UHM Distinguished Speaker Lectures are free and open to the public.
