Ming Qing Studies is a yearly publication, both online and in printed form, which continues the positive experience of Ming Qing Yanjiu (old series, 1992-2007) edited by Paolo Santangelo. Thanks to the cooperation of several scholars settled in Italy and abroad, it intends to widen the debate on the historical and cultural issues of late imperial China as well as pre-modern and modern East Asia. Although this publication focuses on late imperial China, its scope is broadened to the whole East Asia area, with its new cultural and anthropological features which are manifested in this fundamental period of transition from local to global history.
