Mårten Söderblom Saarela 馬騰


I'm a historian of early modern China working as an Asia specialist with Jonathan A. Hill, Bookseller. My research so far has focused on language in history: the study of language and languages, linguistic aspects of the history of science, and—most recently—language use within the political institutions of the Qing empire. The empire was ruled by Manchus, and the Manchu language played an important part in Qing administration and court culture. Much of my time has accordingly been spent dealing with this language.
