About Ming Qing Studies
MING QING STUDIES is an annual publication focused on late imperial China and the broader geo-cultural area of East Asia during the premodern and modern period. Its scope is to provide a forum for scholars from a variety of fields seeking to bridge the gap between ‘oriental’ and western knowledge. Articles may concern any discipline, including sociology, literature, psychology, anthropology, history, geography, linguistics, semiotics, political science, and philosophy. Contributions by young and post-graduated scholars are particularly welcome.

Provided that the process of double-blind peer-review proceeds with no delay and the scrutiny of our experts confirms the scientificity, scholarly soundness and academic value of the author's work, it is one of MING QING STUDIES' commitments to publish the submitted manuscript within one year after its formal acceptance. This would ensure a timely circulation of the author's research outcomes without imposing hard limits on word counts or compromising the quality of peer-review, which, for publications in the same field, is usually much longer. The average article length is 10.000-15.000 words, but long articles and notes on focused topics are also taken into consideration.

Revisiting Liaozhai zhiyi 聊齋誌異 is a reflection on the main motifs of Pu Songling’s collection – a boundless psychic landscape of lost dreams and astonishing visions, masterly told with great humanity and irony. Its inspiration originates from the author’s frustrated career and literary ambitions, his dreams of worldly success and temptations of retreating to Dao-Buddhist asceticism. 
The perspective from which the stories are told is that of a poor male student who is obsessed with passing civil examinations, suffers an inferiority complex about career and marriage, and begrudges the concubines that only lucky scions of wealthy families can afford.
