Leading scholars present new findings and perspectives on China in the years 1400 to 1450.
1400 to 1450 was a period of change and consolidation for Ming dynasty China (1368–1644). This conference will look at the role of imperial and princely courts in China and how China interacted with the wider world during this important time. Over 30 international scholars will explore a wide range of topics, including art and material culture, the military and government, trade and diplomacy, beliefs and cross- cultural exchanges.
Please note, when you purchase a ticket it is for all three days of the conference.
Individual day tickets are not available.
The conference is held in conjunction with the BP exhibition Ming: 50 years that changed China. Research and conference supported by BP, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Sir Percival David Foundation and the James P Geiss Foundation.
