Matteo Ricci and His Closest Chinese Friends

My thanks go first to the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and Niagara County Community College in upstate New York for a research fellowship and a sabbatical leave in the 2006–2007 academic year and then to the Fulbright program and Niagara County Community College for a lecturing-research fellowship at the City University of Hong Kong and a sabbatical leave in the 2012–2013 academic year. The Guggenheim fellowship and the associated sabbatical leave helped to get this research project off the ground in 2007 and the Fulbright fellowship in Hong Kong and the associated sabbatical leave made it possible for much of the involved Chinese language research to be completed.
In the process of reading and thinking about various strands of ideas and their intricate and intriguing relationships with each other for this book project, I also received the support of a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute Fellowship at the University of Hawaii, Manoa and East West Center in 2010 and the support of short-term research fellowships at Peabody Essex Museum’s Phillips Library in 2008, the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., in 2012 and 2013 and the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library of the University of California at Los Angeles in 2008 and 2014. For the crucial support of these short-term fellowships, I would like to acknowledge my heart-felt gratitude. ← ix | x →
