Fellowship Work Summary, 2020–21

Bryna Goodman substantially reconceived and reorganized her project and drafted portions of two chapters of her work in progress, now titled Expansive Exchanges: Colonialism, Sovereignty, and Capitalism in China. This includes a new and previously unanticipated research focus on Japanese stock exchanges in China, based on their unforeseen and extraordinary role in the formation of Chinese stock exchanges. She also completed a full draft of a translation of a 1922 Shanghai stock exchange novel by Jiang Hongjiao, Stock Exchanges Unmasked, for submission to Columbia University Press.
