Antiquarianism in an Age of Reform

Antiquarianism in an Age of Reform

(p.33) 2 Antiquarianism in an Age of Reform

Shana J. Brown

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines the revival of antiquarianism during the age of reform under the Qing Dynasty. In the nineteenth century, jinshi entered a period of remarkable growth, with some 900 works produced before the end of the dynasty. This renaissance came despite the attack on Han Learning, the methodological umbrella for jinshi in the eighteenth century. Despite its use of Han Learning methodologies, jinshi was at the center of a reformist wave involving almost every intellectual during the last decades of the nineteenth century. This chapter first considers the reinvigoration of jinshi centered on social networks that continued to flourish in the twentieth century. It then turns to the jinshihua pai or Epigraphic School of painting and calligraphy and proceeds by discussing the role played by antiquarianism in late-Qing educational reform. It also explores the link between jinshi and geography.

Keywords:   antiquarianism, reform, jinshi, Han Learning, social networks, Epigraphic School, calligraphy, educational reform, geography, Qing Dynasty
