The issues broached in this book are less determined by a unifying intellectual orientation, and rather more by a special attention to the construction of material frontiers, be they politically, ethnically, or geographically determined. Between political debate and ritual enactment, between artistic performance and literary convention, between imaginary geographies and scientific surveys, between ethnic typologies and visual representations, frontiers and their inhabitants appear to be a central (not a marginal) aspect of the self-image of Chinese culture through the ages.
That Cai Ji’s mother was from the same Ji family into which Cai Ji herself was married may indicate some sort of reciprocal marriage relations in alternating generations. Finally, it is perhaps worth commenting that whereas later traditions indicate that married women had “left” their natal families and did not have any continuing ritual relationship with them, here we have a case of a woman clearly already married making a sacrificial vessel dedicated to her deceased brother. Perhaps he was the only male member of his generation in the lineage, and his death – or that of their parents – required his sister’s return to assume responsibility for ritual production.
This is particularly evident in the choice of topics: walls and bodies, resistance and release, gender and sexuality. The contributors to Boundaries in China explicitly meet these themes under the intellectual canopy of Foucaldian epistemology. Our book, on the other hand, does not subscribe to an overarching intellectual agenda. While individual chapters are informed by their own intellectual leanings, intentions, and pursuits, the project as a whole was not born out of the desire to provide any interpretive paradigms.
