My dissertation traces the circulation of news about the Ming-Qing (1644-1660) conflict through global information networks in order to chart the ways in which the “barbarian” Manchu invasion of China influenced global understanding of China’s position in the world. By drawing together sources in several European and Asian languages, this dissertation will show that the circulation of information about the Ming-Qing conflict within China and globally resulted in new understandings of geographical and cultural “China” that were directly impacted by Manchu sponsored narratives of the conquest.
