From a UChicagoNews article by Susie Allen:

"Judith Zeitlin, a scholar of Chinese literature, cultural history and opera, has received a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

"Zeitlin, a Professor of East Asian Languages & Civilizations, will use her fellowship to complete a manuscript titled The Culture of Musical Entertainment in Early Modern China: Voice, Instrument, Text. The book will explore musical culture in China during the late Ming and early Qing periods (roughly 1560-1700)."
