Interpreting the relationship between the Qing empire and inland Eurasia raises crucial questions about the Qing empire itself and its connection to global currents. For this reason, historians have continued to experiment with different perspectives on the study of this massive region. This talk will review some past approaches, and consider the prospects for developing a more integrative perspective on the role of the Qing in early modern Eurasian history, with a particular focus on Inner, Central, and South Asia.Interpreting the relationship between the Qing empire and inland Eurasia raises crucial questions about the Qing empire itself and its connection to global currents.  For this reason, historians have continued to experiment with different perspectives on the study of this massive region.  This talk will review some past approaches, and consider the prospects for developing a more integrative perspective on the role of the Qing in early modern Eurasian history, with a particular focus on Inner, Central, and South Asia.
