Jonah Katz Asian Studies Major, Honors College
In “Analysis of Dream of the Red Chamber,” Katz plans to use geospatial and
character network analysis to study the interactions of social hierarchies and
cliques within the 18th century Chinese classic, Dream of the Red Chamber,
one of the most beloved books in Chinese literature. Katz will examine the
relationship between gender and class by looking at patterns of character
interactions and the spaces in which these characters socialize.
