Memer of the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge
Professor of Modern Chinese History

This lecture begins with a description of the intellectual changes of the period 1750-1900 but focuses primarily on how they turned into policies on the group and how the implications of these shifts differed sharply between the northwestern (Xijniang) and southwestern (Yunnan and, to a lesser extent, Tibet) frontiers.

This lecture is a part of the history department's Moore Lecture Series, an annual series that has been funded by a gift from University alumnus Verne Moore, Class of 1950, since 1996.
