Our conference brought together the members of the Academia Sinica project and other scholars working in North America to discuss cosmopolitanism in China, a conceptual framework recently used to examine a wide variety of intellectual and cultural phenomena. Some of us challenged conventions and truisms, from historical periodization to the alleged unity of the Qing state and its society, while others cast doubts on familiar distinctions between domestic and foreign religions and cultures. We hope that the result will be a collection of excellent essays to be published by a university press.
