Prof. Ebrey began the study of Chinese language and history as an undergraduate in 1966, long before Americans could go to China. Over the course of her career, she has written on a broad range of periods and topics, from the aristocratic families of the medieval period, to family, and marriage in the Song period, and then to art collecting and court culture. Her best known books are probably The Inner Quarters: Marriage and the Lives of Chinese Women in the Song Period (1993), which won the Levenson prize for the best book on pre-1900 China, and The Cambridge Illustrated History of China (1996, 2010), which has been translated into many languages.

Her study of Huizong’s collections (Accumulating Culture, 2008) received the Shimada prize for the best book in East Asian art history, and was followed six years later by a 600-plus page biography, Emperor Huizong (2014).
