Lingnan Culture and the World: Construction and Change in the Cultural Landscape of Cantonese Literati from the late Qing to the Republican era in China (1821–1949)

Project: Research project

Project Details


Gathering scholars from across the humanities disciplines, this project examines the construction and evolution of the Lingnan culture as seen in the lives and experiences of 150 key personalities among the Cantonese literati and merchant-gentry of the late Qing and Republican era (1821–1949)—an age of great change in the history of modern China. This project will underline Lingnan’s unique role in the local and global history of culture and knowledge, situating it in the intersections of the Chinese heritage and the incoming cultures from the West and other culturally active parts of the world.
