Focus Introduction: Displacing Jesuit Science in Qing China (2018)


This “Focus”, entitled “Displacing Jesuit Science in Qing China”, brings together three articles. It is the outcome of a collaboration among young scholars that began with a symposium at the 14th International Conference on the History of Science in East Asia (Paris, July 2015). Their contributions all start from the hypothesis that, by paying close attention to space, and in particular to locations that have hitherto been neglected, one can shed new light on the early modern circulation of knowledge between the two ends of Eurasia, in which the Jesuits were central actors.
