An international and interdisciplinary conference that challenges the conventional view of China's late Qing reform era (c. 1890-1912).

Focusing on gender, genre, and the construction of knowledge in China's late Qing reform era (c. 1890-1912), and moving beyond the old paradigm of Chinese "tradition" vs. Western-inspired "modernity," this international conference provides an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural examination of how reform-minded Chinese intellectuals, men and women, met the challenges facing China during this period. They were not simply swept up by the "nationalist discourse" nor did they feel the need to choose between "traditional" Chinese ideas and "modern" Western ones, as scholarship in the past has suggested. Rather, they creatively used China's historical legacy and Western and Japanese cultural resources to grapple with new geopolitical realities.
