Reading the Eighteenth Century through Rulin Waishi (The Scholars)

This course approaches the eighteenth century through a single novel, Rulin waishi (sometimes translated as The Scholars). We read the entirety of the novel in Chinese, as well as a selection of contemporaneous primary materials written by ruling-class people on subjects the novel treats: orthodoxy, ritual, the examinations, personal morality, and everyday life of elite people. We also examine objects from the Yale University Art Gallery and the Beinecke Library.
