Just hot off the press are some new publications from Professor Eugenio Menegon.

Together with BU colleagues Catherine Yeh (World Languages and Literatures) and Robert Weller (Anthropology), and Heidelberg colleague Rudolf Wagner, Menegon edited a volume entitled Testing the Margins of Leisure. Cases from China, Japan and Indonesia, Series Heidelberg Studies in Transculturality, Heidelberg: Heidelberg University Publishing, 2019.  This is the final result of a BU-Heidelberg project, partly funded by the BU Center for the Humanities in past years, “Leisure and Social Change across Asia.”

Four new essays related to his next book project on Europeans at the Qing court also appeared this month:
