|WESTERNERS AND THE QING
October 17-19, 2008, Beijing
This symposium will provide a forum for an interdisciplinary examination of the interaction between Westerners and the Qing court with the aim of creating a more nuanced and balanced reconstruction of this historical contact. The symposium is intended to broaden our understanding of the breadth of Westerners interacting with the Qing court as well as the perspectives of all of the historical actors involved, both Chinese and Western. Topics addressed at the conference will include: scientific and artistic exchange, gender, social class and status groups, race and ethnicity, diplomacy, transmission of knowledge, rituals and ceremony, material culture, economics, imperialism and semi-colonialism, etc. Ultimately, the project will add to our knowledge of cultural interaction during the late imperial period in China.

Drs. Allsop and Lindorff will interweave musical performance with narrative as they explore the letters and music of Teodorico Pedrini, an Italian composer and missionary at the Chinese imperial court from 1711-1746. As a prelude, they will discuss the musical contributions of Tomás Pereira, the Portuguese Jesuit who preceded Pedrini in the role of imperial music master. Both missionaries contributed to the Lülü Zhengyi Xubian, a Western music treatise within a Chinese theoretical study and a truly unique East-West collaboration.
