Artisans

New lectures uploaded, now mobile capable.

ArtisansI have just uploaded two lectures to my website.  The first is called “Artisans of Ancient China,” and is a summary of the research that went into my award winning book, Artisans in Early Imperial China.  It was recorded from a talk given at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 2009. The lecture will run on computers or mobile devices.

The second lecture is called “Burning the Books and Killing the Scholars” and was delivered at UCLA in 2008 as part of an endowed lecture series.  The three videos, hosted on the UCLA website, contain excerpts from the lecture, along with an interview I did with Chinese literature scholar David Schaberg.
