China at Boston CollegeThis illustration, of the “Supreme Monarch of the Sino-Tartar Empire” (i.e. one of the early Qing emperors), comes from Athanasius Kircher’s China Illustrata (1667), one of several dozen rare Jesuit works on China in the Boston College library, and arguably one of the most famous and controversial early modern European books on the subject.  It serves as a fitting marker of the longstanding Jesuit involvement with China, and of the resources that BC has to offer.   As the faculty, course offerings and student body at BC expands and diversifies, students and scholars will find that these now range far beyond the history of European and American interaction with China, covering many aspects of politics, culture, society, technology and economy within greater China and the Chinese diaspora.
