In the last decade, the approaches of global history have been emphasized to visualize the progress, form, and method which historians have undertaken when carrying out ambitious research projects to analyze and compare diverse geographical and cultural areas of Asia and Europe. But when dealing with comparisons and cross‐cultural studies in Europe and Asia, some scholarly works have exceeded ambiguities when defining geographical units as well as chronology. In this project perceptions and dialogues between China and Europe are examined by analyzing strategic geopolitical sites which fostered commerce, consumption, and socioeconomic networks between China and Europe from 1680 to 1840 through a particular case study: Macau, connecting with South China, and Marseille in Mediterranean Europe.
