Hilde gave three presentations in February 2013 (February 6 at the London Centre of the University of Notre Dame, February 11 at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), and February 25 at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS)) on the representation of Chinese History in comparative studies of pre-eighteenth-century empires. In these presentations she reviewed disciplinary and cross-disciplinary trends in the comparative history, historical sociology, and political science of pre-industrial empires, focusing on three methodological problems: typicality, scalability, and divergence. She argued that Song history and the collective response to the geopolitical crises of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries in particular should become part of the comparative social and political history of empires and other political formations.

On February 14 and 15, 2013, the conference “The Production and Circulation of Printed Books in the Occident and Orient, from the Accession of the Tang Dynasty (c.618) to the First Industrial Revolution” was held at the British Academy. Hilde gave a presentation titled “Continuities between Scribal and Print Publishing in Twelfth-Century Song China” on the first day of the conference. She examined the evolving relationship between print and manuscript and particularly twelfth-century perceptions of this relationship. She also compared Chinese and English negotiations of this relationship in the twelfth and seventeenth centuries, two periods when for the first time Chinese and English literate elites, respectively, lived in a world where print publishing was a commonly available option.
