Asian History



My recent work concerns basically how the increase of spatial mobility in China during the 16th through the 18th century helped generate new understandings of locality, new geographical knowledge, and new modes of human-place relation. Currently I am working on a book-length project that examines how the age-old "culture of locality" in China experienced the country's political turmoil during the twentieth century.
