​A common theme in Steven Miles' research projects has been the physical movement of people across space, from the early nineteenth-century literatus Xie Lansheng’s peregrinations in urban Guangzhou to Cantonese merchants trading on the Guangxi-Vietnam border.

Miles has recently completed a book manuscript entitled Upriver Journeys: Diaspora and Empire in Southern China, 1570-1850.
