Current Project

Initiated over the last several years,a number of projects he has been working on are nearing completion since he became chair of East Asian Studies in 2011.They were underwritten by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies(PIIRS)and the East Asian Studies Program(EAP).The projects were also sponsored by the Davis Center for Historical Studies,the Gardner“Magic”Fund in the Princeton Humanities Council,and the Princeton-Oxford World Philology Project.A Mellon Foundation Career Achievement Award will support these projects to their completion.I have spent a good deal of the current year editing and completing the following three conference volumes:

Rethinking East Asian Languages,Vernaculars,and Literacies,1000-1919.This is based on a“Research Cluster”supported by PIIRS and the EAP,2009-2012,with a publishing subvention provided by the Mellon Foundation.The project overall challenges the premise of a stark dichotomy between“the classical”and“the vernacular”in CE linguistic development.Influenced by European models,which mechanically explained the transition from Latin as a classical language to indigenous vernaculars,scholars of East Asian cultural history have viewed classical/literary/Sinitic CE,on the one hand,and spoken/written vernaculars,on the other,as different languages that did not interact and developed along separate tracks.This linguistic assumption overlooks the variety of interactions between the vernacular and the classical in imperial CN,which in reality represented different social registers of the“CE”language.

Also based on the PIIRS“Research Cluster”support,a volume called Early Modern Asian Medical Classics and Medical Philology is in the final stages of editing.The"Medical Philology"workshops allowed us to discuss the debates and issues about CE,Japanese,and Korean editions of traditional medical texts in early modern East Asia.The workshops also focused on another ongoing project addressing“medical culture and medical commodities,”which seeks to unravel the cultural patterns in the production,distribution and consumption of medicines in early modern East Asia.

Science and Technology in Republican CN.This conference volume results from a two-day symposium that convened in New Haven,Connecticut,in January 2010,and was co-sponsored by the Yale University East Asian Studies Institute.The conference brought together junior and senior scholars of CE history,history of science,and literature in an attempt to reevaluate the meaning and practice of“scientism”in nineteenth-and twentieth-century CN.We revisited the foundations of modern CE intellectual history as well,thereby charting new directions in the study of science and technology during CN’s Republican period,1911-1937.

He has also continued his involvement with the still ongoing“Comparative Project on CN and India.”which has met in May 2012,September 2012,and June 2013.Sponsored by PIIRS and a Mellon Award the goal is to prepare a coherent collection of essays that would inform non-specialist readers about the comparative genealogies of contemporary India and CN as re-emergent powers.We aim to make big arguments about big questions:ecology,polity,gender relations,religion,literature,science and technology,and so on.Our goal is to produce a scholarly book for the general reader that embodies a new,large-scale comparative experiment.

Teaching Interests

Professor Elman teaches undergraduate courses on the cultural and social history of CN and on perceptions of CN and Asia in the West,as well as a document-based course for sophomores in History addressing various topics in CE history,including the travels of Marco Polo,the Sino-Japanese War,and the Jesuits in CN.He teaches graduate-level courses on the classical historiography of CN,the history of education in CN,the history of science in CN,and(with Professor Susan Naquin)material culture and technology in CN.

He Bian

He Bian(Ch.邊和)is a historian of late imperial/early modern CN.Her research interests focus on the theme of authority and variations in CN’s traditional culture,pertaining in particular to the history of medicine and science.

Professor Bian is currently preparing a book manuscript based on her dissertation,“Assembling the Cure:Materia Medica and the Culture of Healing in CN,1550-1800.”The book sheds new light into CN’s early modern condition by charting changes in the intellectual,economic and social underpinnings of traditional pharmacy.She is also working on the transformation of the“masters literature”(zi)and the study of history during the Ming and Qing dynasties.

Before joining the Princeton faculty,Professor Bian received her B.S.degree from Peking University,M.S.from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Ph.D.in history of science from Harvard University.At Princeton,she will teach introductory courses to modern East Asian history and early modern CN,as well as seminars on special topics ranging from doing research with the Qing Archive to CN’s material culture and environmental history.

Selected Articles

Janet Chen is a historian of modern CN,specializing in the twentieth century.She received her Ph.D.from Yale University and a B.A.from Williams College.She joined the faculty of the Princeton History Department in 2006,and she is also a member of the East Asian Studies Department.

Current Research

Professor Chen’s first book,Guilty of Indigence:The Urban Poor in CN,1900-1953(Princeton University Press,2012),is a study of the destitute homeless during a time of war and revolution.Focusing on Beijing and Shanghai,the book considers how the advent of workhouses and poorhouses in the early twentieth century represented a fundamental reordering of the relationship between the state,private charity,and the neediest members of society.It draws on local archival research to place“the poor,”rather than their benefactors and custodians,at the center of inquiry. 美国留学

A new project underway,provisionally titled The Sounds of Mandarin,will investigate the history of CN's spoken national language.
