ENP-China Webinar: Social investigation in late Qing periodicals (Lien Ling-ling)

“Creating a new genre: social investigation in the late Qing periodicals”

A talk by Lien Ling-ling 連玲玲, Institute of Modern History, Academia Sinica, Taipei

7 April 2022 – 9:30 am (French time) 

In this paper, Prof. Lien explores three periodicals published in the last 10 years of the Qing dynasty and examine how the writers (most of whom were Chinese students in Japan) articulated the concept of investigation 調查. She argues that “investigation” was not just a method to collect information but also a new writing style for introducing new knowledge.
