The Dragon and the Eagle: Interdisciplinary Symposium on Early Sino-American Maritime Trade

Why We Recommend it

Jointly presented by The Hong Kong Maritime Museum and Asia Society Hong Kong, this symposium covers a wide range of multidisciplinary topics surrounding the hotly-debated Sino-American trade.


In this symposium, leading professionals, academics and curators from the United States, Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Macau shed light on commerce, economics, technology, policy, diplomacy, and arts and culture from the eighteenth to twentieth century. Through four comprehensive lectures, the symposium facilitates further research, encourages deeper discussion and study into the field of early Sino-American maritime trade (1784-1900), and allows a closer examination on how this mutually beneficial relationship contributes significantly to global economic and cultural growth today.
