Project: "Asian Revolutions in European Public Discourse 1644-1800"

The project will examine European reactions to political upheavals in Asia from 1644-1800, focusing on the Manchurian conquest of China (1644); the execution of the Greek minister Phaulcon in Siam (1680-1688); and the rise and fall of Nadir Shah in Persia (1736-1747).
