24th Annual Joseph Lee Memorial Lecture

City and Gardens: Yangzhou's Cultural Development During the Qing Dynasty

Located at the junction of the Yangtze River and the Grand Canal, Yangzhou is a famous city in China's Jiangsu Province. During the Qing Dynasty, Yangzhou was one of the economic centers of China. The city's cultural richness was evident in the bustling city and beautiful gardens. At the same time, other cultural productions were on the rise in very interesting ways, such as the publication of books, dramatic performance, and tourism.
