The issue of Ming Qing Studies 2017 is mainly dedicated to history and literature. “The Speaking Garment: Clothes in Women’s Everyday Practice in Ming–Qing China”, by Lin Zhihui, aims at proposing a different interpretation of women’s daily practice: by examining how everyday life manifested womanhood and how women applied their agency to re–shape the nature of everyday practice, it contributes to understand gender identity perception and moral values in late imperial society. The article “Local History and National Politics in the Reconstructions of the Donglin Academy” by Lin Hsueh–Yi, examines the evolution of the multifaceted idea of Donglin, its historical symbol and ideological impact, and their influence on the changes concerning local identity of Jiangnan elites, the religious cults and the role of rites in modern Confucianism practice. Bartosz Kowalski, in “Holding an Empire together: Army, Colonization and State–building in Qing Xinjiang”, discusses the connection between the army’s military and non–military activities and the creation of state administrative structures, infrastructure, educational institutions and pursuit of a policy of settlement in Xinjiang from the mid–18th to early 20th centuries. Wang Tao as author of a collection of zhiguai has been discussed by Fu Mengxing, in “Tales of the New Strange: Wang Tao’s Zhiguai Writing (1880–1890)”. The topic is very intriguing because a new element ispresent besides the traditional problematics of the utopia–dystopia, reality–dream and retribution: the effects of Western encounter, political and ideological instability, the scientific discourse. “The Concept of Qing in Honglou meng — illumination from the Zhiyan zhai commentaries” is the second part of the article published in Ming Qing Studies 2016 (The Concept of Qing in Honglou Meng — Historical Inheritance), a study by Chunlam Yiu, which offers new explanations on the perception of love in late imperial China through the comparison of the personalities of Baoyu and Daiyu.
