  • Description:

    Throughout its history, with the ebb and flow of dynastic power, unity and disaggregation, expansion and invasion, China has been traversed by currents of change of varying magnitudes that were connected with other regions, both close and remote. This talk will examine various ways in which China has engaged the wider world (and vice versa) in its ancient and early modern past.
