The body of the friend: 'Friendship and Literary Culture in Mid-Tang China

In her talk, Anna Shields, associate professor of Chinese at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, explores the impact of elite male friendship on the literary culture of the mid-Tang period (780s–820s), an era of great social and cultural change and the beginning of the epochal Tang-Song transition. Drawing from her book “One Who Knows Me: Friendship and Literary Culture in Mid- Tang China," Shields focuses on images of the “body” of the friend in mid-Tang poems, letters, and funerary texts. Thursday, April 24, 5 p.m., Humanities 180.
