Here is a list of conferences where I have presented or plan to present my work on genealogies.

  • June, 2020. (Postponed due to Covid-19) Chinese Object Study Workshop. The Art Institute of Chicago. 
  • May, 2020. (Postponed due to Covid-19) Graduate Student Symposium: The Ends of Text. The Journal of the History of Ideas. The University of Pennsylvania.
    • Presented paper: “Illustration Matters: The Reconfiguration of the Genealogy in Late-Ming China, 1500-1644.”
  • April, 2020. (Postponed due to Covid-19) Standalone Conference: Before & Beyond Typography: Text in Global & Multimodal Perspective. Stanford University.
    • Talk: “Manipulating Printing Technology in Late-Imperial-China Genealogies.”
    • Abstract: Through an analysis of a wealth of family genealogies, this paper shows that many genealogies were produced through a combination of different printing technologies. This casts doubts on the dichotomies between manuscript and print, and between woodblock and movable type.
  • October, 2019. 68th Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs (MCAA) Annual Meeting. Michigan State University.
    • Presented paper: “Artifact versus History: The Popularization of Genealogies in Longyou, Zhejiang, 1750s-1920s.”
    • Abstract: Through an investigation of genealogies produced from the eighteenth century to the twentieth century, this article demonstrates that genealogies underwent a process of popularization in the nineteenth century. As genealogies became increasingly available and accessible to more social groups, they became markers of social distinction as different groups made genealogies in their own ways. Genealogies became new sites for age-old antagonisms in local society as well. 
  • April, 2017. “The Spatial Turn,” the 2017 Graduate History Association Conference. Washington University in St. Louis.
    • Presented paper: “The Imagining of Home and the World: Maps of Lineages in Late Imperial China.”
