Traditions and innovations: An exploration of the governance structure, business strategy and historical development of the Chinese Shanxi piaohao, 1820s to 1930s
The EHS Bursary has offered me tremendous support during the last academic year. For me, it is not only an endorsement of my research but also helped me to cover my archival work expenses and tuition fees. With this bursary, I have been able to undertake archival work in Japan and collect first-hand sources for my research. The sources I have collected and compiled not only filled the void where this subjected is concerned, but also deepened my analyses and sharpened my arguments. It is this bursary that alleviated my financial burden and helped me to concentrate on my work. I feel really grateful for that.
