The Work of Edgar Mead as Reader of Chinese Language and Social Economy, 1933 – 1941
With monies reallocated from the Boxer Indemnity Fund in the early 1930s, the University of Manchester appointed Edgar W. Mead (1887 – 1941) as Reader in Chinese Language and Social Economy. This talk will focus on Mead’s role in developing the study of Chinese language and history at Manchester, as well as his activities as a liaison between the University, Manchester’s Chamber of Commerce, and those sections of Manchester’s business community with interests in China.
All the Confucius Institute public talks are free to attend and there is no need to book.
