Dear Translation Workshop Participants,

We are delighted to welcome you to Chicago and look forward to our translation sessions this coming week. We are privileged to have this chance to follow the methodology established by the Legalizing Space in China Project, and to build upon and contribute to their translation efforts. The statutes selected for this workshop come from sections of the Qing Code devoted to criminal procedure. This focus will give us insight into the administrative and procedural mechanisms of the Qing legal system to bring to each of our diverse research endeavors.

Please check your email as you should have received an email from an UChicago email address on how to access the university’s wireless throughout your stay. Your username will be the email address that we have been using to communicate with you.

We will be meeting regularly in the Regenstein library. Present your library pass to the security desk at the entrance of the Regenstein Library. Your library pass can be found within an envelope inside your welcome packet, which will be provided to you upon check in at the Quadrangle Club. While presenting your library pass should be sufficient for entry into the library, please be sure to bring a government or university issued ID card with you the morning of our first session in the event that they may need to verify your identity.

The translation teams are as listed below:

Group A: Statutes 314, 411, 422: Maura, Tom, Yiying, Luca, Du Jin, Alec
Group B: Statutes 394, 396, 416: Frederic, Dan, Janet, Tian Yuan, Chiu Pengsheng Group C: Statute 409: Jerome, Nancy, Wang Zhiqiang, Johanna, Stephanie, Andy

The schedule below provides an outline for how we will spend each day. This can evolve depending on where our various collaborative efforts and group discussions lead.
