Matthew Mosca’s teaching and research interests center on Chinese and Inner Asian history, specifically the history of the Qing empire (1644-1912), its foreign relations and place in global history, and the intellectual history of Qing-era geography and historiography. Currently, his primary research interest is the development of historiography on Chinggis Khan and the Mongol Empire between 1650 and 1900 in a Eurasian context. He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses on the history of Modern China, East Asia, Qing Foreign Relations, Asian Empires and Borderlands, and Chinese Conceptions of Foreign Peoples.
