Yinzong Wei researched the intellectual history and scholarly culture of late imperial China. Focusing on a particular writing—marginalia—and the scholarly practices about marginalia, he examined how marginalia were composed, circulated, edited and printed from the late Ming to early republic period, so as to explore scholars’ thoughts and mentality revealed in these practices. His interests include intellectual history, culture history, classical studies, history of the book and traditional Chinese historiography, with a particular interest in discovering meaningful points of intersection between these fields of study. He earned his M.A. in Chinese Language and Literature at Peking University in 2014 with a thesis on a seventeenth-century Chinese scholar’s marginalia.
