  • Land, Lineage and the Laity: Transactions of a Qing Monastery
    • Abstract: <p>By Weiwei Luo</p> Chinese monasteries characterized by their great estates and pioneering financial institutions in the Tang and Song period, seem subsequently to have faded from the socio-economic landscape. This study, by relying on recently discovered contracts in the Dajue monastery in a western suburb of Beijing, uncovers two previously understudied developments essential to understanding Qing monasteries. First, monasteries consolidated property and embedded themselves in local society through land exchanges with the lay community. Second, within monasteries, lineage served as an important organizing and conceptual principle, one that bore remarkable similarity to the structure and logic of lay lineages. This article argues ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Jonathan Ocko: A Remembrance
    • Abstract: <p>By Madeleine Zelin</p> When I first met Jon he was already well known as Qing historian1 and had begun his exploration of the relationship between culture, ideology, governance, and law in that period. His article on capital appeals remains the basis for our understanding of this uniquely Chinese construction of the relationship between the state and its people. At the same time, his work on family conflict and its expression and resolution within the legal framework of the Qing focused our attention on the role of law in the everyday and was an important step in the development of a major thrust of our field today—the exploration of law in practice. Today we cannot imagine Chinese legal history research that bypasses the day-to-day ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Reframing the Boundaries of Household and Text in Hou Honglou Meng*
    • Abstract: <p>By Jessica Dvorak Moyer</p> Vernacular novels such as Honglou meng (Dream of the Red Chamber, printed 1791) and Jin Ping Mei (The Plum in the Golden Vase, printed ca. 1618) are an important source for depictions of material culture and emotional dynamics in wealthy late imperial homes. Though fictional, these visions of domesticity offer important insights into the symbolic space of the household and the relationships it defined. The household walls formed a concrete boundary that contained—or failed to contain—the passions of its inhabitants, embodying the ritual principle of separation and distinction. The architectural walls mirrored the ritual boundaries that guided human passions by defining marriage and kinship.1 In written ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Eight Scenes of Suzhou: Landscape Embroidery, Urban Courtesans, and
           Nineteenth-Century Chinese Women’s Fashions*
    • Abstract: <p>By Rachel Silberstein</p> “In the Wu region, the fashions are showy and flashy—petty officials and clerks, lowly actors and courtesans—all wear furs and embroidered jackets, dazzling in their finery and conceited in their novelty.”1Figure 1 shows a women’s ao style jacket dating to the early to mid-nineteenth century: bright red in color, it is embroidered with well-known Suzhou garden and temple sites set into eight roundel frames, their locations identifiable both by the scenic features and their poetic inscriptions. It presents a curious conflation of the decorative and the topographical, the urban and the rural, the artistic and the fashionable. Who might have worn this intriguing jacket? How and by whom was it produced?Ao style ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Fifty years of Qing studies—and Late Imperial China
    • Abstract: <p>By Tobie Meyer-Fong</p> Fifty years ago, in April 1965, a small group of Qing historians, including John King Fairbank and Mary Wright, gathered informally at the Association for Asian Studies annual meeting in San Francisco. They gave themselves a name—the Society for Qing Studies—and they tasked a junior scholar—Jonathan Spence (Mary Wright’s student, who would receive his PhD from Yale later that spring) with the establishment of a new publication called Ch’ing-shih wen-t’i. They deliberately chose not to configure it as a typical peer-reviewed scholarly journal. Rather, they imagined it as the center of a developing scholarly community, as a place to publish inquiries, research notes, and to float new ideas informally.Among other ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Making of a Frontier Landscape: The “Ten Views of
           Dongchuan” in Eighteenth-Century Southwest China*
    • Abstract: <p>By Fei Huang</p> Located far away at “Heaven’s end” (tianmo), Dongchuan is one of many remote places in the hinterland of Southwest China (Fig. 1). Dongchuan has deep, river-carved gorges and rugged mountains, with significant local variation in climate like most of Southwest China. Mainly because of this rough topography, Dongchuan and other parts of present-day northeastern Yunnan continued to be occupied primarily by indigenous groups for many centuries. Between 1726 and 1730, the Qing Dynasty (1644–1912) took away the power of indigenous chieftains and started to pursue effective control over this area by means of institutional and military force. After the Qing conquered this area by repressing so-called rebellious indigenous ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Captive’s Revenge: The Taiping Civil War as Drama*
    • Abstract: <p>By Rania Huntington</p> Huang Shuhua (style name Wanli, 1847–64), the protagonist of Xu E’s (style name Wuge, 1844–1903, juren 1885) play Lihua xue (Snow on the Pear Blossom/The Pear Blossom Rights Wrongs, completed 1886 and published 1887) is an exile in three stages: originally a flower-spirit expelled from heaven, she grows up in a scholar’s family in the outskirts of the Taiping capital Tianjing (Nanjing).1 In her childhood the family kept a low profile, maintaining loyalty to the Qing while living in the Taiping capital and making a living by farming. They thus were displaced in both social class position and in political allegiance. During the Qing reconquest of Nanjing, a soldier slaughters her family and takes her far from home. ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Logic of Lies False Accusation and Legal Culture in Late Qing Sichuan
    • Abstract: <p>By Quinn Javers</p> False accusation [wugao] was a strategy deployed by a range of individuals in order to bring their complaints to the court for remediation. It lays bare the very real ways in which locals—including the poor—actively shaped formal disputation as it entered the courtroom. The study of false accusation exposes the sophisticated strategies Qing subjects employed to advance their interests in court, and makes clear that even among the rural poor there was a broad knowledge of the workings of the legal system. Indeed, many individuals resorted to cunning strategies to circumvent normal channels of local dispute resolution in order to avail themselves of state authority. Conversely, one also sees the state, as ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Borderlands Business: Merchant Firms and Modernity in Southwest China,
    • Abstract: <p>By C. Patterson Giersch</p> Our Tengchong district! Eight or nine of every ten men leave home (to make a living).Outside of Heshun village, near Tengchong in westernmost Yunnan, the road’s cobbles have settled in the dry, red earth. This narrow stone road makes for a dusty, uneven path leading out of town. In imperial times, along it traveled thousands of village men and their pack animals, intent, so it is said, to provide for the family by leaving it behind. Though this cobble road appears a humble path, it supported a major commercial transition that transformed this village—and many others like it—during the nineteenth century. Over these cobbles clopped horses and mules, their bells clanking and their flags flying, packing commodities ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Searching for the Roots of Western Wealth and Power: Guo Songtao and
           Education in Victorian England
    • Abstract: <p>By Jenny Huangfu Day</p> By the winter of 1878, Guo Songtao had been in London for two years. The Qing empire’s resident minister in England and France, he was exhausted by work and hurt by defamers who called him a traitor, and he was ready to go home. When he first arrived in London he was impressed with England’s industrial might and eager to bring back its secrets to China. “In this country the local gentry strongly advise China to build railways,” he wrote to Li Hongzhang; “they say that the power and might of England are really based on the railway system.” Now, after deeper inquiries into the country’s governance, Guo was of a different opinion. He was certain that the self-strengthening officials had misplaced priorities.1 In his ... <a href="">Read More</a>
