Kristen Hopewell is a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Michigan. Her research interests are at the intersection of political and economic sociology, with a focus on global political economy and development. In her dissertation, she analyzes the rising power of Brazil, India and China at the World Trade Organization (WTO) and their impact on the multilateral trading system. Her project draws on 15 months of field research conducted at the WTO in Geneva, as well as in Beijing, New Delhi, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, and Washington, involving 157 interviews with trade negotiators and other senior officials, industry representatives, and NGOs; over 300 hours of ethnographic observation; and extensive documentary research. This research was supported by a Fulbright Fellowship, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Kristen has been a visiting fellow at Beijing University, the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, and the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. Kristen has longstanding interests in the social, political, and economic aspects of international trade and finance. Prior to beginning her PhD, she worked as a trade official for the Canadian government and as an investment banker for Morgan Stanley.
