Colgate University, 2011Principal Investigator(s): David Robinson, Colgate University
The Geiss Hsu Foundation fully-supported and conducted the Ming Provincial Courts Conference, held at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York. Nine scholars from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, China, and the United States presented papers and discussed the courts of imperial clansmen outside Beijing. Participants drew attention to their patronage of painting, religion, scholarship, as well as the courts’ social, economic, and military dimensions. Some papers delivered at the conference were published in Ming Studies Volume 12, Issue 65.
