- Late imperial and twentieth century China; Religions and Christianity in China; Chinese-Western relations since the 18th century.
My current research project studies the economic and financial history of the Society of Foreign Missions of Paris (French: Socit des Missions trangres de Paris short M.E.P.) in south China from the late nineteenth to early twentieth century. It examines how those missionaries purchased and utilized local properties demonstrating how property acquisitions provided a testing ground for Sino-Western relations.
