Pamela Crossley received her PhD from Yale in 1983. She is a specialist on the Qing empire, and also researches and writes on Central and Inner Asian history, the history of horsemanship in Eurasia before the modern period, and global history. Her most recent book is The Wobbling Pivot: China since 1800, An Interpretive History (Wiley/Blackwell, 2010). Among her previous single-author books are What is Global History? (Polity Press, 2008), A Translucent Mirror: History and Identity in Qing Imperial Ideology (University of California Press, 1999), The Manchus (Blackwell, 1997), and Orphan Warriors: Three Manchu Generations and the End of the Qing World (Princeton University Press, 1990). They have been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French and Spanish. She is also co-author of The Earth and its Peoples: A Global History (Cengage, 5th edition, 2012) and Global Society: The World since 1900 (Cengage, 3rd edition, 2012). Shorter research works have appeared in The Cambridge History of China, The Cambridge History of World Slavery, and The Cambridge History of Warfare, in scholarly journals including The American Historical Review, The Journal of Asian Studies and Annales, and in popular publications. Her work has been supported by the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, the American Council of Learned Societies, among others. She is a past holder of the Rosenwald Research Professorship, and has been awarded the Dartmouth Award for Outstanding Scholarly or Creative Achievement (1990) and the Levenson Prize of the Association for Asian Studies (2001).
Currently Crossley is revising a book manuscript on the role of the nomadic empires in the Eurasian transition to early modernity, is completing research on a new book on the influence of imperially-ascribed concepts of identity on early twentieth-century nationalism, and is editing The Oxford Handbook of Modern China. She is also software author and scholarly editor of the ECCP Reader, a desktop access point to the famous reference work Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Period (1943) and its parallel channels of recent research and commentary. The project is part of a broader, developing Dartmouth portal for global Qing research. She is also creator of teaching devices, such as the Daxue device used by her students.
