Michael Lüdke is interested in the interaction of concepts and social practice in early China and beyond, and especially in the insights into intellectual and social history revealed by the recently discovered bamboo, wood, and silk manuscripts. A main subject of his work has been Chinese legal history, with an emphasis on excavated sources from the Qin and Han dynasties. His research project at the Consortium focuses on legal, institutional, and social frameworks of prognostic practice in China.
