MATTHEW H. SOMMER is an Associate Professor of History and is an affiliated member of the Stanford Center for Law and History. His research focuses on sexuality, gender relations, chosen kinship, and law during the Qing dynasty (1644-1912) and the main sources for his work are legal cases from central and local archives in China. The main local archives he has used happen to be located in Sichuan, which is his favorite part of China. He also likes to use popular fiction and other non-legal sources for historical research. His first book, Sex, Law, and Society in Late Imperial China, is primarily a legal history, but more recent projects use legal cases to explore social historical topics as well. His second book, Polyandy and Wife-selling in Qing Dynasty China: Survival Strategies and Judicial Interventions, was published in September 2015. He is now completing his third book, which analyzes male same-sex relations and masculinity in eighteenth-century China on the basis of some 1700 relevant cases. Long-term plans include a fourth book, about criminal procedure in the Qing dynasty.

He received his bachelor’s degree in East Asian Languages and Civilizations from Harvard in 1983, his MA in East Asian Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London) in 1985, and his Ph.D. in history from Stanford in 1993. He teaches a variety of classes on Chinese, Central Asian and world history at undergraduate and graduate levels. His research interests focus on China and Central Eurasia including Mongolia, Tibet and especially Xinjiang, as well as the silk road more generally. He is currently researching cross-cultural musical exchanges on the silk road in preparation for a book on the lute across Eurasia. He has served on the China and Inner Asia Council of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS), as well as on the Executive Board of the Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS). He was president of CESS in 2010.
