Yonglin Jiang offers courses on Chinese and East Asian history. Recent courses include surveys of Chinese civilization, Chinese revolution, and human rights in China, as well as seminar on legal culture in imperial China. Jiang's research focuses on legal culture in imperial China and ethnicity and law in contemporary China.  He is the author of The Great Ming Code (2005), The Mandate of Heaven and the Great Ming Code (2011), and a number of articles on legal philosophy, the body, ethnicity, religion, and law enforcement. In the past several years, Jiang visited Fenghuang at Hunan Province in China to study Miao culture, and is currently engaging in research projects on the "Southern Great Wall" and Miao customary law. In 2012-2013, Jiang will use a Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies to work on a book project tentatively entitled "Negotiating Justice:  Local Adjudication and Social Change in Late Imperial China" at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton.  He is past president of the Society for ming Studies.
