dc.description.abstractThis article studies the New Qing History approach that arose in the US in the 1980s and the ensuing responses to it, and how these responses can be understood in the context of American China studies, twentieth-century historiographical trends, and Chinese nationalism. It argues that the New Qing History approach should be considered in a contextualized and de-politicized way. After examining how Chinese-born scholars responded to the controversial issues (sinicization, the nature of the Qing dynasty/Empire, and the definition of China/Zhongguo) pro-voked by New Qing History, the article suggests that sinicization should no longer be used as an uncontestable interpretative framework for studies of Chinese history. Instead, it favors a historicized conceptualization of China empha-sizing its open, inclusive, and integrative character, as well as the uniqueness of Qing China’s expansion. The article also demonstrates the New Qing History approach’s positive influences in diversifying primary sources and its contribution in promoting borderland and non-Han studies.en_US
