Dr Phoebe Chow's research focuses on the interplay of cultural perceptions, public opinion and policymaking in Sino-British relations in the early 20th century. She received her doctorate in International History at LSE and is about to complete her first book, entitled, Britain's Imperial Retreat from China, 1900-1927 (Routledge, 2015). She was the Parliamentary History prize winner for the best essay submitted on any aspect of parliamentary history and her work was subsequently published as: 'Parliament and the Problem of China: Priorities, Preoccupations and Stereotypes, 1925-7' in Parliamentary History, vol. 29, no. 3 (2010), pp. 358-375. She has also published a chapter in an edited volume: 'The End of Informal Empire in China' in Donovan Chau and Thomas Kane, eds., China and International Security: History, Strategy, and 21st-Century Policy (Praeger, 2014).
