Empire of emptiness : Buddhist art and political authority in Qing China by Patricia Ann Berger( )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imperial Manchu support and patronage of Buddhism, particulary in Mongolia and Tibet, has often been dismissed as cynical political manipulation. Empire of Emptiness questions this generalization by taking a look at the huge outpouring of Buddhist painting, sculpture, and decorative arts that Qing court artists produced for distribution throughout the empire. It examines some of the Buddhist underpinning of the Qing view of rulership and shows just how central images were in the carefully reasoned rhetoric the court directed toward its Buddhist allies in inner Asia. The multi-lingual, culturally fluid Qing emperors put an extraordinary range of visual styles into practice - Chinese, Tibetan, Nepalese, and even the European Baroque brought to the court by Jesuit artists

The development and analysis of future agricultural landscapes by Patricia A Berger( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alternative futures studies provide a way for policy-makers and stakeholders to investigate the future impacts of different management strategies by providing representations of possible outcomes. An alternative futures study was undertaken by the Pacific Northwest-Ecosystem Research Consortium for the Willamette River Basin, Oregon, USA, to determine how this regional system would respond to various drivers of change. To support this effort required the development of a simulation model that generates future agricultural landscapes in response to these drivers of change and the evaluation of the resulting landscapes to derive information useful for policy analysis and community discussions. These goals were achieved by creating a characterization of the initial agricultural system, developing an agricultural land-cover change model, and finally, integrating this model with scenario elements to produce the final agricultural landscape evolution model. An important part of the initial landscape characterization was determining the crop suitability class of the basin's agricultural soils for 14 commonly grown crops. Suitability rankings were generated by using rough-set rule induction to create predictive if-then rules that related a soil's biophysical characteristics to crop production and then applying these rules to all the agricultural soils in the basin. After characterizing the agricultural system, a spatially explicit, multi-attribute decision model was developed to simulate a grower's crop-selection decision. This model used attributes describing a field's biophysical conditions and each crop's agronomic, economic, and management characteristics to select a field's preferred crop from a list of crop alternatives. Next, rules and constraints were formulated for each of the three policy scenarios: a continuation of current trends, an increased reliance on market forces to determine land use, and an increased emphasis on environmental restoration programs. The initial agricultural landscape depiction, crop selection model, and scenario rules were used to generate three future landscapes, each depicting an alternative state of the agricultural system in the year 2050. Then, landscape metrics and screening models were used to assess the agronomic and environmental condition of each agricultural landscape. Finally, this information was placed into the context of the Willamette River Basin, with suggestions for policy development and analysis

Creating the kangxi landscape : Bishu shanzhuang and the mediation of Qing imperial identity by Stephen Hart Whiteman( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines how the construction and representation of cultural and geo-political landscapes contributed to imperial legitimacy in the early Qing dynasty (1644-1911). Focusing on the largest of the Qing garden-palaces, Bishu shanzhuang ("Mountain Villa to Escape the Heat"), the project draws on the physical landscape and its depictions in paintings, woodblock prints, maps and personal ac-counts to reveal the importance of space, geography, and memory in the negotiation of dynastic identities. The intersections of geography, landscape and ethnicity were central to the formation of the Qing state and its power. The Qing conquest elite and the empire they ruled were geographically and culturally distinct and mutually unfamiliar. The early state's principal challenges lay in establishing the legitimacy of their rule while creating a geographically and culturally cohesive empire out of highly disparate parts. The invention of a new, fundamentally "Qing" landscape, one that reflected both the empire's diversity and its ideal unity, was central to the success of all these goals. Through the construction of imperial garden-palaces, and court-produced representations of them in paintings, books and other media, the court created a politically and culturally significant landscape associated solely with the emperor. Bishu shanzhuang was perhaps the most important of these imperial landscapes. Built beyond the Great Wall, it is located in a region, Rehe, or Jehol, that the court simultaneously described as non-Chinese and as wild, natural and undiscovered -- a culturally blank canvas. There, the Kangxi emperor (r. 1662-1723) ordered the construction of an expansive garden-palace that miniaturized the diverse geography of the empire, while at times literally recreating the landscapes of the historic heart of Chinese culture, the South. In their seeming contradictions, together garden and site thus embodied the court's complex negotiation of multiethnic identities, a central concern of the state throughout the dynasty. Treating the Mountain Villa as a second capital, the emperor and many of his successors hunted, engaged in diplomacy, and en-joyed the crisp, cool air of the mountains and valleys. Through these activities and imperially-produced representations of the gardens in paintings, albums, gazetteers and other media, the court created a politically and culturally significant landscape associated primarily with the emperor, used to assert legitimacy, demonstrate authority and create bonds of loyalty with those whose support was most crucial to the ongoing stability and power of the Qing dynasty. The dissertation seeks to address a number of methodological concerns, as well. By focusing primarily on the Kangxi period, the project counters conventional treatments of the site that consider only its final state of development under the Qianlong emperor and reestablishes the Kangxi emperor as an independent political actor whose ideologically oriented cultural productions laid the foundation of Qing imperial practice for the remainder of the dynasty. Similarly, departing from earlier narratives that framed Bishu shanzhuang either as a recreation of a literati garden on a massive scale or as a reconstruction of the Buddhist universe intended for a non-Chinese audience, this project recognizes the centrality of both Chinese and non-Chinese vocabularies in the Rehe landscape. Finally, this study presents new approaches to under-standing the importance of landscape as medium for ideological expression throughout the Qing and in the early modern world more broadly
