“Writing The Book of Rivers and Lakes (Jianghu)” was a planning workshop for a co-authored encyclopedic book-length study entitled The Book of River and Lake. The Book will focus on an enduring and influential Chinese concept, known as jianghu. Jianghu (literally, “rivers and lakes”) is an imaginary realm away from home and hearth. Jianghu, a fluid type of cultural imaginary, is also intimately connected to the notion of a solid and stable “Middle Kingdom”; over the centuries, notions of unruly and uncivilized border regions have helped to shape ideas of empire and nation. This workshop brought together specialists in a variety of fields to design a learning, teaching, and research resource related to this influential cultural idea.
