My current research is on missionary publishing in Chinese and its reception in late Qing China. This project has two main dimensions: tracking down information on missionary publications in Chinese prior to 1911, finding out which titles are extant, and where, and compiling a bibliography of them; and researching those publications and their reception and influence, in the context of other printed materials in Chinese society and the changing intellectual and social landscape of late Qing China.
