Oxford has published Mihwa Choi’s book, Death Rituals and Politics in Northern Song China. According to the Oxford website, it:
- Offers a new explanation of the 11th-century revival of Confucianism
- Examines the roles of debates on death rituals within court politics
- Moves beyond the consideration of Confucianism as a mainly intellectual movement
Sounds fascinating! See more here.
Thanks to Keith Knapp’s terrific mailing list (which I too frequently fail to credit for things I post here):
Brill has started publishing a new periodical called Bamboo and Silk that contains articles on unearthed bamboo and silk manuscripts from the pre-Qin and early imperial period. See here.
