Recent decades have shown increased interest in the history of Christianity in China, especially concerning socio-cultural exchange between Chinese and Western missionaries. In his talk, Dr. Anthony Clark will describe how scholars locate, access, and utilize lost and rare materials related to Sino-Western and Sino-Mission history. He will also discuss how he has gathered print and manuscript sources including rare photographs from both large cities and remote villages in places as far-flung as China, Italy, Vatican City, France, Belgium, and Germany. Centering his research on China’s late imperial and Republican eras, Clark’s scholarly work examines and explains how Sino-Western exchange played an important role in the transformation of both societies.
