Tianxia Podcast Series: Professor Igor de Rachewiltz—Of Tartar Princesses, Poets, and Great Khans of the Mongols

Dear Colleagues,

Sadly, the great Mongolist and Sinologist Igor de Rachewiltz passed away late last week at the age of 87.

To pay tribute, on Chinoiresie.info we just published what is probably his last interview. Here below I copy the introduction from the website:

David T. Roy, 1933-2016

Professor David Tod Roy, professor emeritus of Chinese literature at the University of Chicago, died in Chicago on Monday, May 30, 2016.

Professor Roy is best known for his 30-year five-volume English translation of the Chinese novel Jin ping mei (1618), published by Princeton University Press between 1993 and 2013 (Xiaoxiaosheng, The plum in the golden vase, or, Chin Pʻing Mei, translated by David Tod Roy [Princeton: Princeton University Press, c1993-2013]).
