Suyoung Son received her Ph.D. in 2010 from the Deparment of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago, with a dissertation titled 'Writing for Print: Zhang Chao and Literati-Publishing in Seventeenth-Century China." While at CEAS, she began a new project, "Between Propriety and Proprietorship: Authorship and Intellectual Property in Late Imperial China," which examines the relationships between authorship and intellectual property in late imperial China, focusing particularly on civil and legal disputes between authors and publishers, drawing on sources from legal documents, publishing contracts, market practices, and literary representations from the late sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries.
