Historian - Professor - Digital Scholar

IEAS Research Monographs, Berkeley

The contributors to this volume take up the issue of “images in history” within the context of Republican and more recent Chinese urban history. They do so in response both to the availability of a massive amount of visual data from the Republican period and to a perceived lack of sustained effort, on the part of historians as opposed to cultural critics and students in other disciplines, to consider the mining of such materials for historical insight.
