Over the last twenty years, material culture studies have occupied a growing place in the social sciences. How does this growing interest in objects and material culture reveal itself in Chinese studies? Choosing from different disciplines and different periods, this AFEC workshop aims to examine how to approach objects in the humanities and social sciences—from everyday objects to natural objects, consumer goods, technical or scientific instruments, objects of study or devotion, or ritual objects and works of art.
Presenters: Professor Robyn Sloggett AO (Director of the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Material Conservation, University of Melbourne) & Dr Stefano Carboni (Director of Art Gallery of Western Australia).
The programme includes a Persian musical performance with Timothy Johannessen and poetry recital with Professor Amir Zekrgoo - Wednesday 27th June 6pm.
