The Oxford History of Historical Writing

Pamela Kyle Crossley

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines historical writing under the Qing Empire. It details the comprehensive and energetic pursuit of a documentary legacy for the Qing Empire that would integrate origins, identity, righteous conquest, and the fate of civilizations into a coherent imperial narrative. The undertaking relied heavily upon the development of the fanglve genre, complemented by administrative histories, historical compendia, and lyric meditations through the media of poetry, architecture, landscaping, curating, and ritual performance.

Keywords:   Qing Empire, historical narrative, historiography, main sequence, conquest, Qianlong period, fanglve genre, Chinese historical writing
