Elisabeth Köll, professor and chair, Department of History

In 1922, Frank Canaday took a job as an advertising agent for British American Tobacco in Shanghai, then the largest foreign cigarette company in China. Based on Canaday's observations as an avid diary writer and photographer, Professor Köll shows how Americans did business in China during the early days of globalization and what it tells us about today's China market. 

All lectures are free and open to the public. No tickets required.
