Teaching Tools

The Society for Qing Studies would like for this website to serve as a resource for teaching. We have a sample syllabus for a documents and methods course, generously provided by Pär Cassel of the University of Michigan. We welcome the submission of additional syllabi on topics pertaining to the study of Ming and Qing China in any discipline.  Contact the editors to submit syllabi or to share links to websites useful for teaching.

As a subscriber to Late Imperial China and/or a member of the Society for Qing Studies, you have read-only access to the Research Portal for Ming-Qing History hosted at Harvard University. The site includes digitized, updated versions of the Kuhn-Fairbank syllabus for reading Qing documents, including a searchable glossary of terms, along with additional new materials. All documents on the site are downloadable in .pdf format.
