This public symposium will use recent books by the main presenters as jumping off points for discussion. For each of the first two sessions, a China specialist and a comparativist will comment on the book presentations. The final session will be a roundtable that will bring in other periods. It will also bring in perspectives from ethnography and comparative literature to complement the focus on history and to a lesser extent art history in the first two sessions.
