HST137: People and Their Stuff in Chinese History

A history of Chinese material culture: This course explores the historical context of some of the most iconic objects of Chinese history, and traces the link between China’s traditional material culture and the present. We also look at how attitudes towards objects and their historical significance have changed through the centuries. Finally, we investigate how Chinese objects ended up in Western (and in particular American) museums, and what implications this has for “Chinese material culture”.
