Dr Wong, John Dick On 王迪安
Dr. Wong’s research interests focus on transnational business history. He received his Ph.D. in History from Harvard University in 2012. He also holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Chicago and an M.B.A. from Stanford University. He worked for a number of years in investment banking and investment management and has earned the designation of Chartered Financial Analyst.
His doctoral research, completed with the support of a Fulbright award, examines the Canton Trade in the context of early-nineteenth-century global exchange. His work demonstrates how partners in the Canton Trade sustained their economic exchange on a global scale long before Western imperialism ushered in the era of globalization in a Eurocentric modern world during the turn of the twentieth century. In his next project, Dr. Wong will explore the businesses of Asian culinary sauces as a window to the social, cultural and economic history of Asians and Asian diasporas. In keeping with his research interests, his teaching centers on the transnational flow of culture, people and capital, with the Pearl River Delta as a major nexus.
