OnMethods of Historical Social Sciences

【与谈人简介】About the Discussants

       田耕 是北京大学社会学系助理教授,研究兴趣和方向包括历史社会学、政治社会学、社会理论和、韦伯学说及近代中国社会转折。他的博士论文聚焦1 8 世纪中晚期西北边疆的帝国建构过程,以及这个过程对该地区在1 9 世纪中期大规模反叛的影响。近 年来,他的研究兴趣开始向帝国疆域治理的比较研究扩展。他的论文发表于 The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social and Political Movements 、《社会学研究》、《社会》等。

  Geng Tian received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 2015 and henceforth has been an assistant professor of sociology at Peking University, China. Tian’s interest hinges on historical sociology, political sociology, social theory and the macro historical changes in modern China. His dissertation studies the processes of the Qing’s empire building at one of its northwestern peripheries in the middle and late 18th century and how this process impacted the tremendous political upheavals in that region during the middle 19th century. Currently Tian is expanding this research into a comparative study of imperial territorial governance. His publications appeared on The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social and Political Movements《社会学研究》、《社会》.

 王利平是北京大学教育学院教育与人类发展系副教授,曾任香港大学社会学系助理教授(2015-2019)、芝加哥大学哈勃-施密特青年学者(2014-2015)哈弗福德学院访问助理教授(2013-2014)等职位。她的研究与教学兴趣包括:比较历史社会学社会理论族群研究知识与文化社会学,以及近代与当代中国。她的论文见诸于The American Journal of SociologyComparative Studies in Society and HistoryThe Annals: The American Academy of Political and Social SciencesModernChina《社会》、《北京大学教育评论》等。目前,她正在撰写其英文专The Imperial Creation of Ethnicity: Chinese Policies and the Ethnic Turn in Inner Mongolian Politics, 1900-1930及若干其他工作论文。

  Liping Wang is now an associate professor at the Department of Education and Human Development in Peking University. During 2015-2019, she served as assistant professor at the Department of Sociology in the University of Hong Kang after she earned her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Chicago. Before joining the University of Hong Kong she was Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Chicago. She was visiting assistant professor at Haverford College in 2013-2014.  

Her dissertation, ‘Ethnicizing the Frontier: Imperial Transformation and Ethnic Confrontations in China-Inner Mongolia, 1890s-1930s’, was completed in 2013. She is now turning this into a book manuscript. The volume examines forms and causes of Mongol-Han confrontation in Inner Mongolia during the Chinese imperial transition, and questions general theories of empire to nation transition in an historical examination of the Chinese case. Her alternative approach focuses on the maintenance and dissolution of the relations that sustained crosscutting identities on the frontier.

In addition, Wang has also been working on transnational movement of knowledge in modern academic disciplines, the indigenization of that knowledge, and the creation of a knowledge regime dealing with ethnicity in Republican China (1912-1949).

Her research has been published in The American Journal of Sociology, Comparative Studies in Society and History, and The Annals: The American Academy of Political and Social Sciences, Modern China.
