« Cosmopolitan Travelers and the Origins of a National Consciousness among Elites of Northern Song China »

Nick Tackett, visiting scholar from University of California, Berkely

Time : 13.00-15.00 Venue : Lipsius building room 208, Cleveringaplaats 1, Leiden

Several decades ago, historians proposed the emergence in the Song of a « proto-nationalism. » This talk will reconsider this issue from a new perspective, by comparing contemporary descriptions of Northeast Asia by Song ambassadors to Liao with a reconstruction of the physical and cultural geography of the region (reconstructed partly on the basis of GIS techniques). Given that a large component of the Northern Song political elite had served on embassies, it is worth considering how their travel experiences affected their sense of China’s place in the world.
