Proposal for a Panel on travel literature in late imperial China.
I am organizing a panel on travel writing during late imperial China for the AAS conference to be held in New York next year and am looking for interested parties to join this panel. I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto, working on a thesis on the role of nature and religion in travel writing in late imperial China (Ming and Qing dynasties). My own interest in travel writing is as a literary genre and I will be proposing a paper on Wang Shizhen's travel writing; however, I am quite happy to hear from scholars in other disciplines in regard to travel writing. Interested parties may contact me at my email.
