Taking China Out of Premodern Global History: Bodies, Threads, and Fabrics

Naomi Standen, University of Oxford

March 9, 2021 · 4:30 pm6:00 pm EST · Zoom

Program in East Asian Studies

‘China’ is a problematical concept for the premodern period because the name unavoidably invokes the fixity of a modern nation-state that maps poorly onto the various and ever changing political formations of earlier centuries. This talk takes technologies of the body – viewed through various aspects of textiles – as cases through which to reframe our understanding of premodern Eastern Eurasia with interactions and relationships at the core of a non-sinocentric analysis.
