Society for Ming Studies Annual Meeting and panel: March 22, 2019

Thanks to a grant from the James P. Geiss and Margaret Y. Hsu Foundation, in addition to our usual business, we will also hear pechakucha-style (read: six minutes per person) research presentations from nine Ming scholars. The presenters will highlight their primary argument, key sources used, and explore the ways in which their research connects to the Ming. It should be an interesting evening! Afterwards, we will adjourn for drinks and continued conversation.
Here is a list of the nine presenters and their presentation titles:

1) Monica Klasing Chen, a PhD Candidate at Leiden University, will present “Profitable Memory: Publishing Memory Aids for Calligraphy and Painting during the Ming Dynasty.”

2) Shiau-Yun Chen, a PhD Candidate at Cornell University, will present “Mothers of Loving-Kindness: Authorizing and Maximizing Mothers’ Legitimate Violence in the Disciplining of Children in Ming Families.”

3) Ilsoo David Cho, a fellow at Harvard University’s Korea Institute, will present “The Ming-Choson Relations after 1592.”

4) Christopher Eirkson, a visiting assistant professor at Franklin and Marshall College, will present “The Yuan, Ming, and Cross-Eurasian Connections.”

5) Xiaobai Hu, a PhD Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania, will present “Unruly Mountain: Transformative Encounters in the Chinese-Tibetan Borderland, 1371-1701.”

6) Sunkyu Lee, a PhD Candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles, will present “Jiangnan’s View of Pirate Traders in Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century China.”

7) Haiwei Liu, a PhD Candidate at the University of Southern California, will present “Confucian Elements in a Messianic Rebellion: Rethinking the Origins of the Dynastic Name ‘Ming.’”
