Silk Roads to New England:

Information and Technology, Innovation and Globalization, 1760-1930

In her latest manuscript Silk Roads to New England, Stockard tracks an experimental American silk industry, its changing technologies and global connections. A work in historical ethnography, Silk Roads documents the development of a little-known colonial-era New England silk culture and industry. It traces the links between this New England silk experiment and the later South China silk industry, which Stockard researched for Daughters of the Canton Delta.
