Elizabeth Ingleson

PhD Candidate in the history of US-Chinese relations, University of Sydney

Elizabeth Ingleson is a PhD candidate at both the Department of History and the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney. Her dissertation, provisionally titled "The end of isolation: Rapprochement, Globalisation, and America's Trade with China, 1972-1978," looks at the burgeoning trade relationship between the US and China that was reestablished during the 1970s after 22 years of isolation. She explores the way in which trade was used as a political tool in this period, and the ways in which the forces of "re-globalisation" shaped the bilateral trade relationship, with results that continue to resonate today. She is a recipient of a Commonwealth Government Australian Postgraduate Award.
