CFP on The Public Life of Imperial Space in Qing Beijing (AAS 2018, Washington, D.C., March 22-25)

Dan Barish (Baylor University) and I are looking for two additional panelists on an AAS panel on imperial space in Qing China’s capital city of Beijing in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Barish plans to discuss a range of buildings associated with imperial education in Beijing, examining the relationship between architecture and knowledge regimes. Wu seeks to understand the process through which Beijing’s Lama Temple was transformed to exhibit a reimagined imperial rule in the late eighteenth century.
