Comparative Analysis of Dynastic Centers in Europe and China

Duindam und Dabringhaus (Hrsg.): The Dynastic Centre and the Provinces

The Dynastic Centre and the Provinces: Agents and Interactions.


At the centre of this research project is the comparison between Qing China and Europe in the Early Modern Period. Taking into account the approach of Norbert Elias in his work The Court Society, the function and functional change of the monarchical court (among other themes) will be examined in a comparative European-Chinese perspective. In this way, both structural similarities and differences, such as the recruitment of the dominant elite and the religious context of court ceremonial, can be systematically analysed.

The project is supported by the European Commission under the EU Framework Programme "European Research Area Network (ERANET)". This includes expanding research into the international sphere and also promoting research co-operation between Europe and China, or COREACH Programme ("Coordination of Research between Europe and China").


Project Members

The research group comprises Prof. Dr Jeroen Duindam (Department of Early Modern History, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Netherlands), Prof. Wu Boya (Institute for History, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing, People's Republic of China), and Prof. Dr Sabine Dabringhaus (Chair of East Asian History, Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg, Germany).
