晚明至清中葉大松江地區棉紡織業研究項目說明

「晚明至清中葉大松江地區棉紡織業研究」為蔣經國學術基金會支持的研究項目。研究對象是晚明至清中葉(1550年-1800年)大松江地區的棉紡織業發展及相關的地理訊息。所謂大松江地區,除了明末清初時屬於江蘇省(明代為南直隸)松江府的三縣(華亭縣、上海縣、青浦縣)外,還包括蘇州府的嘉定縣(後析出鎮洋縣)、崑山縣(後自北半部析出新陽縣)、原蘇州府(後於清雍正年間獨立為直隸州)的太倉州、浙江省嘉興府的平湖縣和嘉善縣等圍繞松江府的棉布產區。

本項目有三個目的:

總括來說,本項目是香港研究資助委員會撥款資助項目「晚明松江地區棉紡織業研究項目」(項目編號: CUHK4020/02H) 的延展研究;以更長的時段及更廣的空間,把社會經濟歷史、地區歷史、 地理信息系統、區域分析及新制度經濟學等方法結合起來,嘗試為對過往及現在中國經濟發展的研究,帶來新的研究策略及更深入的理解。

Project on Cotton Textile Industry of the Greater Songjiang Region from the Late Ming to the Mid-Qing - A Brief Description

This is a Chinese Language database. English description is provided only as an introduction.

The project on Cotton Textile Industry of the Greater Songjiang Region from the Late Ming to the Mid-Qing is sponsored by a grant from the CCK Foundation. It deals with the development of cotton textile industry of the Greater Songjiang Region from the late Ming down to the mid Qing (1550?-1800). By Greater Songjiang Region we refer to the major cotton textile production area of late imperial China, covering the three counties (Huating, Shanghai and Qingpu) of the Songjiang prefecture, Jiangsu, and the three counties originally belonged to the Suzhou prefecture, Jiangsu, namely, Jiading (the eastern part later sub-divided into the Zhenyang county), Kunshan (the northern part later sub-divided into the Xinyang county) and the Taicang sub-prefecture (later in the Yongzhen era obtained the status of independent sub-prefecture directly under the jurisdiction of the Jiangsu province), as well as the Pinghu and Jiashan counties of the Jiaxing prefecture, Zhejiang.

There are three major objectives for this project:

In sum, this study built upon our former study “Cotton Textile Industry in Songjiangfu Region during the Late Ming Period” supported by a grant from the Research Grant Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, China (Project No. CUHK 4020/02H). With an extended temporal and geographical framework, the current project is a multidisciplinary study combining socioeconomic history, local history, GIS, regional analysis, and new institutional economics with a view to generating new understanding of and research strategies towards China’s economic development, past and present.

The current website of “GIS Database of Cotton Textile Industry of the Greater Songjiang Region from the Late Ming to the mid-Qing” presents the GIS database outcome of this project.

The data of this GIS Database can be downloaded only for individual research purpose. If used for academic or educational non-profit-making publications, it must be clearly acknowledged. Without prior permission, it shall not be used for any commercial or profit-making purpose.
