  • Editorial Preface
    • Abstract: Nowadays, declaring that we live in a digital world is less a truism than a banality. Even those of us who study societies and cultures that predate steam power—never mind the Internet—use digital resources all the time even if our main sources are manuscripts or woodblock imprints. We read digital editions of books and journals, do keyword searches of databases, and increasingly find images of our beloved manuscripts and woodblocks posted online as PDFs. I doubt that even the most curmudgeonly cyberskeptic among us longs for a return to the days of card catalogues.It is no surprise that many humanists have been looking for ways to harness the power of computing to the essentially artisanal labor of humanistic ...

  • About the Cover
    • Abstract: The Tale of Genji (Genji monogatari 源氏物語) is a classic of world literature. Japanese readers have been fascinated by the novel since Murasaki Shikibu 紫式部, a lady-in-waiting at the imperial court, completed it during the first decade of the eleventh century. The peak of premodern interest in Genji came during the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, when the tale dominated the cultural lives not only of court elites but also of warriors who aspired to cultural distinction. Genji was everywhere during that time—in readings, lectures, discussions, plays, calligraphic inscriptions, and paintings.The cover image for this issue is a product of the late medieval culture of Genji. Sue Saburō 陶三郎, a leading ... Read More

  • Homosocial Mentorship and the Serviceable Female Corpse: Manhood Rituals
           in The Tale of Genji
    • Abstract: After Murasaki 紫 has died, Genji 源氏 and his son, Yūgiri 夕霧, gaze at her exquisite corpse together. This viewing represents not only an instance of unchecked voyeurism but signifies moreover a pedagogical exercise of homosocial viewing in which Genji teaches Yūgiri how to read a dead female body: a paternal object lesson in how to mourn and become a man through staring. The scene allows us to examine the ethical implications of mourning as impelled by overlapping desires to look, read, and teach. Rather than frame Genji and Murasaki's relationship in a romantic heteronormative idiom, I argue that Murasaki should be read as an instrument through which homosocial mentoring relations are reinforced. I focus on the ... Read More

  • Precious Bodies: Money Transformation Stories from Medieval to Late
           Imperial China
    • Abstract: The coin itself embodies both Heaven and Earth; its inner hole the squareness of Earth, its outer rim the roundness of Heaven. 錢之為體,有乾有坤;內則其方,外則其圓。The dual character of the money-form—heavenly and earthly, precious and filthy, lively and deathly—is inscribed in China's earliest currencies. The cowrie shell and bolt of silk, the bodily excretions of snail and worm, are intimately connected to the living at the same time that the harvesting of shell and cocoon turns them into tombs.2 The rise of minted specie cleaved the money-form from the living body, yet commodity money—as concrete object and as abstraction—retains this formal paradox of embodiment and absence, of value and worthlessness. The imagination of money ... Read More

  • Analyzing Printing Trends in Late Imperial China Using Large Bibliometric
           Datasets
    • Abstract: Thanks to constantly increasing amounts of digitized biblio graphic information available, it is now possible to visualize the contours of print culture and history with greater range and accuracy than ever before. Already in use in other fields, digital quantitative analysis offers a fruitful new approach to late imperial Chinese literary and print history. This new epistemological approach focuses on aggregating and statistically evaluating structured data. It complements traditional approaches because scholars can use quantitative methods to reevaluate old hypotheses as well as to explore new ones. Exploratory statistical analysis and data visualization, for example, can track shifts in production volume, size ... Read More

  • China's Gate to the Indian Ocean: Iranian and Arab Long-Distance Traders
    • Abstract: Between 878 and 879, the Chinese rebel Huang Chao 黄巢 (?–884) sacked the city of Guangzhou (originally named Panyu 番禺) and massacred many foreign residents of the city. The Arab geographer and writer Abū Zayd of Sīrāf (writing in 916) speaks of 120,000 Muslims, Jews, Christians, and Magians—that is, Farsi- or Persian-speaking Zoroastrians—being killed by Huang Chao:Men experienced in their affairs have mentioned that he killed 120,000 Moslems, Jews, Christians, and Magians who lived in this city and became merchants in it, apart from those killed among the Chinese. The amount of the numbers of these four sects was known only because of [their] taxation [by] the Chinese people [according to] their numbers.[Huang ... Read More

  • Buddhism, Bodies, Medicine, and Spellcraft
    • Abstract: One of the most important sites for the interaction of Buddhist doctrine and practice is the human body. The body is also a place where Buddhist theories often encounter other systems of knowledge—medical, physiological, cosmological, ritual. These three books take up, in different ways, significant issues relating to the human body in various Buddhist contexts: the development of a Tibetan medical understanding of the body in a culture heavily suffused by Buddhist doctrines and concepts of authority; the movement of therapeutic information and practices of bodily care across distinct cultures, as transmitted through the medium of Buddhist texts; and medieval Chinese ideas about the power of Buddhist spells to ...

  • Agitation or Deep Focus?: Early Chinese Film History and Theory
    • Abstract: These two new books published by the University of Minnesota Press are significant additions to the flourishing field of Chinese cinema studies. The historical periods of the two books largely overlap. They both focus on Chinese cinema in the first half of the twentieth century, the Republican era. They often discuss and reference the same films, directors, critics, and events. It is a beneficial experience to read them together and compare their treatment of certain issues. The two studies join a growing body of lively scholarship on Republican cinema and enter into fruitful dialogues with relevant works.1 Both books endeavor to tackle the specificity of the film medium. Whereas Weihong Bao dwells on the affective ... Read More

  • Great Qing: Painting in China, 1644–1911 by Claudia Brown, and: Imperial
           Illusions: Crossing Pictorial Boundaries in the Qing Palaces by Kristina
           Kleutghen (review)
    • Abstract: Historians of Chinese art have long recognized that the last half of the Ming dynasty (1368–1644) brought fundamental changes to the production and reception of art. Among the most significant were the rapid expansion of print culture and the evolution of a consumerist art market, which propelled anxieties about connoisseurship and the social status of people and their material possessions. The last century of the Ming witnessed the introduction of Western modes of representation by Catholic missionaries, whose relatively smooth entrance into elite intellectual circles provoked a limited but intriguing response in contemporaneous scholarly writing, and a lasting imperial interest in Western cartography. Other new ... Read More

  • Writing, Publishing, and Reading Local Gazetteers in Imperial China,
           1100–1700 by Joseph R. Dennis (review)
    • Abstract: Prior to the Song dynasty (960–1279), there was no standardized format for the arrangement and contents of what later became known as difang zhi 地方志, or "local gazetteers" (also called "local histories"). Thus, the yiwen zhi 藝文志, or bibliography chapters, in the dynastic histories often listed any sort of place-specific text in the "category of geographical works" (dili lei 地理類). We know this lack of standardization changed by the Southern Song (1127–1279) because many local gazetteers from that period have survived and they reveal a distinct genre of writing. Here I refer mainly to the topical arrangement of Song and post-Song local histories, which typically include chapters on administrative history, mountains ... Read More

  • Rise of a Japanese Chinatown: Yokohama, 1894–1972 by Eric C. Han
           (review)
    • Abstract: Taking his cue from Prasenjit Duara to rescue history from the nation, Han offers a nuanced, thick history of Yokohama's Chinatown to explore local and transnational contexts for the multiple and constantly shifting affiliations and identifications of Chinese making lives in this localized yet cosmopolitan place. Drawing upon individual and family narratives that capture the conflicting and sometimes irreconcilable choices faced by ethnically demarcated populations, Han argues that the history of Yokohama's Chinese community illustrates how a minority population carved out an "enduring place within a mono-ethnic state. It is a paradox that explains much about the challenges of integration faced by municipalities ... Read More

  • Government by Mourning: Death and Political Integration in Japan,
           1603–1912 by Atsuko Hirai (review)
    • Abstract: This very interesting monograph explores the place of rituals of public mourning in Tokugawa- and Meiji-era Japan. Rulers issued orders and laws that specified behaviors related to mourning and preventing transmission of pollution, called bukkiryō 服忌令 and narumono chōjirei 鳴物停止令, respectively. As Hirai notes, scholarly attention to this topic in Japan is relatively recent, and it has been all but absent from English-language research. That there is only one monograph in Japanese devoted to the subject might even suggest that it is an arcane subject of narrow significance.1 But Hirai's claim, as the title of her monograph suggests, is that public mourning is key to understanding the sociopolitical order of Tokugawa ...

  • Sound Rising from the Paper: Nineteenth-Century Martial Arts Fiction and
           the Chinese Acoustic Imagination by Paize Keulemans (review)
    • Abstract: Sound Rising from the Paper, the title of Paize Keulemans's monograph, derives, as the author informs us (p. 3n3), from a comment in the Yuan Wuyai 袁無涯 edition of Water Margin (Shuihu zhuan 水滸傳): zhishang chu sheng 紙上出聲. The phrase might also be translated as "sound arising from the paper," or "the page gives voice." In any event, it is a felicitous choice for the title of this work, in terms of both content and source. The notion of paper giving voice aptly encapsulates the negotiations between the written word and oral/aural culture that constitute this study's chief concern. This instance of a late Ming elite commentator's attempts to guide readers' response to Water Margin's presumably popular provenance and ... Read More

  • The Han: China's Diverse Majority by Agnieszka Joniak-Lüthi (review)
    • Abstract: In The Han: China's Diverse Majority, Agnieszka Joniak-Lüthi confronts head-on one of the more perplexing aspects of contemporary China: Are the Han Chinese an ethnic group, and if so, what makes them an ethnic group? The Han nationality, or Hanzu (汉族), officially constitute 91.5 percent of China's population, or 1.2 billion people. The Hanzu are identified by the Chinese state as the national majority, the core of the Chinese multiethnic nation, which officially comprises fifty-five other national minorities (minzu 民族). But what does being Han mean to those classified as Hanzu? More importantly for this study, how can the Hanzu seem so united in their Han-ness while at the same time seem so fragmented and divided ... Read More

  • The Stranger and the Chinese Moral Imagination by Haiyan Lee (review)
    • Abstract: In this extraordinary study, Haiyan Lee begins by referencing a series of incidents in contemporary China where passersby have callously declined to help a stranger in distress. Perhaps most notably, there was an infamous incident in Guangdong in 2011, which was caught on video, when a two-year-old girl named Wang Yue 王悅 ("Yueyue 悅悅") was accidentally run over by not one but two vehicles. She lay screaming in agony in the middle of the public road for more than seven minutes as at least eighteen pedestrians walked right by her without stopping to offer assistance (eventually, a lowly rubbish collector attempted to get her medical attention, but the child died shortly afterward). Part of the reason why so many ... Read More

  • The "Greatest Problem": Religion and State Formation in Meiji Japan by
           Trent E. Maxey (review)
    • Abstract: Writing in 1934 in Christ and Japan, Kagawa Toyohiko 賀川豊彦 (1888–1960), a well-known Christian minister, socialist labor leader, and pacifist, described his approach as a Christian to visiting state Shinto shrines. Prefacing his remarks by noting the incoherence in the Japanese Department of Education's separation of religious sect Shinto from non religious state Shinto, Kagawa continues,Therefore, the department insists that these [state] shrines are not of a religious character. Nevertheless, through the existence of these monument-shrines, the forms of ancient, Asiatic Shamanism are preserved. Yet it is true that the shrines of state Shinto are the monuments and tombs of men who rendered conspicuous service for ... Read More

  • The Proletarian Wave: Literature and Leftist Culture in Colonial Korea
           1910–1945 by Sunyoung Park (review)
    • Abstract: In The Proletarian Wave: Literature and Leftist Culture in Colonial Korea, 1910–1945, Sunyoung Park offers readers a landmark critical overview and reevaluation of a significant but misunderstood history of leftist culture in colonial Korea and its contested legacies. The book sets out an ambitious trajectory of mapping the complex terrain of what it coins as "the Proletarian wave," which the author writes was not a single movement but "a broad alliance of writers, intellectuals, publishers, editors, and readers that arose within Korean culture in the mid-1910s and declined in the early 1940s with the approach of the Great Pacific War" (p. 1).The task of the book is formidable as it aims to document and recuperate ...

  • Modernity with a Cold War Face: Reimagining the Nation in Chinese
           Literature across the 1949 Divide by Xiaojue Wang (review)
    • Abstract: The political division at the middle of the twentieth century has long obstructed the comprehensive study of modern and contemporary Chinese culture. The establishment of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the concurrent removal of the Nationalist government to the island of Taiwan in 1949 made it no longer possible to treat modern Chinese literature as a "national literature" (although there had already been many earlier complications). This political rupture also tore apart countless lives, including those of many important cultural figures. It has often been noted that many Chinese authors who had already made literary history by the 1930s—Lao She 老舍, Mao Dun 茅盾, Ba Jin 巴金, Shen Congwen 沈從文, and others—all ... Read More
