Professor Charles Hartman received his PhD in Chinese literature from Indiana University in 1975 and published Han Yu and the Tang Search for Unity in 1986, which received the Levinson Prize from the Association for Asian Studies. Over the past twenty-five years, his articles on Song dynasty historiography in the Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies, T’oung Pao, and the Journal of Song-Yuan Studies have prepared the way for his current research on how political decision-making influenced Song historical writing. His book, The Making of Song Dynasty History: Sources and Narratives will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2020.
