Talk: Missionary Cameras and Modern China in Global Imaginations

Robinson Building Complex, UCSD, San Diego


Joseph W. Ho from Albion College and University of Michigan will share stories from his new book “Developing Mission” which offers a transnational cultural history of U.S. and Chinese communities framed by missionary lenses through time and space—tracing the lives and afterlives of images, cameras, and visual imaginations in modern China.

Joseph W. Ho is an assistant professor of History at Albion College and a center associate at the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at University of Michigan. His research concerns transnational visual culture in Sino-US encounters and modern East Asian history. Ho is the co-editor of “War and Occupation in China: The Letters of an American Missionary from Hangzhou, 1937-1938”, and author of “Developing Mission: Photography, Filmmaking, and American Missionaries in Modern China”
