Manuscript Review Workshop for “Laws of the Land: Fengshui and Administration in Qing China”
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, late spring 2022Principal Investigator(s): Tristan G. Brown, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
An award from Geiss Hsu Foundation will make possible a manuscript review workshop for Laws of the Land: Fengshui and Administration in Qing China by Tristan G. Brown. Laws of the Land examines fengshui’s role in late imperial China as a discourse for articulating legal claims pertinent to the relationship between humans and their environments. Brown will invite two scholars working in Ming-Qing studies in the areas of cultural history, environmental history, or the history of science to read and comment on a draft of the work.
