Chinese Objects and their Lives

by Lemardelé Élise - published on , updated on

The workshop will be held at INALCO – the Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales, on June 15-16 2018.

Entitled “Chinese Objects and their Lives”, this workshop aims to examine how to approach objects in the humanities and social sciences—from everyday objects to natural objects, consumer goods, technical or scientific instruments, objects of study or devotion, or ritual objects and works of art. The workshop explores the life, trajectory and the possible metamorphoses of the value, status and function of objects, as well as the relationships these artefacts have with individuals—raising in addition questions of their social uses—by focusing on their religious, symbolic, political, economic, emotional or memorial dimensions.

This international workshop is organized by the Association française d’études chinoises (AFEC) with the generous support of:

Centre de recherche sur les civilisations de l’Asie orientale (CRCAO), UMR 8155
