I am interested in China's intellectual history and the roles of the shi as a locally-instantiated national elite. In addition I am fascinated by computational approaches to the handling of lots of data. the China Historical GIS and China Biographical Database represent this.
University of California, Davis
I am interested in the social, intellectual, and cultural histories of the Song and Yuan dynasties, with special attention to gender and family relations. I recently finished a book called Courtesans, Concubines, and the Cult of Female Fidelity (Harvard East Asia Center, forthcoming 2012). My next project will look at the role of "guest" relationships in defining social and gender hierarchies Song society.

I have spent my professional life focused on southern Fujian, on which I have published a book on late Tang-Song economic history and one on extended kinship structures. I am now working on the integration of the South into the Sinitic world.
My basic interest is Chinese poetry and poetics and their intersection with intellectual history. My manuscript on the transformation of shi poetry from Huang Tingjian to the end of the Southern Song and its relation to the rise of Daoxue is in copy-editing at Harvard.
University of Warwick
I started out as a student of local history, working specifically on Jizhou Prefecture in Jiangxi during the Southern Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties. My 2007 Brill book on Jizhou focused on the writings by literati on temples and other local institutions. At the University of Warwick, I have been drawn into the study of global history, and I now work on the interaction between global and local in another Jiangxi place: the porcelain production centre of Jingdezhen.

Institute of History and Philology,
My recent interests are legal and social histories. Some past works are published in 宋代的家庭和法律 (2008), and a new book entitled 宋代的宗教,身分與司法, with focus on Buddhist monks and concubinies, will come out in June 2012. I hope to write two more books before an early retirement in 2015, and then devote myself to social work in the footsteps of Song literati.
University of Oregon
My primary area is classical Chinese poetry and poetics from the earliest to about the Song-Yuan period. My book on eleventh-century print culture and the poetic thought of Huang Tingjian, Ten Thousand Scrolls: Reading and Writing in the Poetics of Huang Tingjian and the Late Northern Song, was published by the Harvard Asia Center in 2011. My ongoing second book explores the materiality in the representation of emotion in classical Chinese poetry.
