Charles Hartman (PhD, Indiana University, 1975) began his career in Tang literature and published Han Yu and the Tang Search for Unity (Princeton University Press) in 1986. Beginning with “The Making of a Villain: Ch’in Kuei and Tao-hsüeh,” HJAS 58.1 (1998) his research has focused on Song historiography, with special focus on how Song politics shaped the contours of the surviving historical record and how Song historiographical praxis and overt censorship have influenced the received narratives of Song history. His latest monograph, The Making of Song Dynasty History: Sources and Narratives, 960-1279CE was published by Cambridge University Press in 2020.
He is Professor of Chinese Studies in the Department of East Asian Studies, the University at Albany, State University of New York.
