I am a ph.D. candidate in UCLA History department. Currently I am working on my dissertation titled "Mapping and Constructing Border in Ming China." Instead of treating maps as an outcome, I adopt a process-based approach to mapping as a performance, and analyze the role of maps in imagining border and reenvisioning the poliitcal community in Ming China. From my background as a Ming historian and as a historian of cartography, in this roundtable I want to revisit several assumed boundaries in New Qing history scholarship: Ming/Qing dynastic divide, land and sea border, and traditional (or more illustrative) and early modern (or more scientific) cartography.
