CCCC with Michael Nylan (History, UC Berkeley)

Friday, March 31, 2023 at 3:30pm to 5:30pm

Rockefeller Hall, 374 Asian Studies Lounge
Central Campus

Michael Nylan (Jane K. Sather History Chair, University of California-Berkeley) will explore in the second of our four guest presenters:

Xunzi's (荀子) "On Rituals" (禮論)

She is a truly interdisciplinary scholar.  Her single goal is to know as well as possible the extant texts and artifacts that her historical subjects knew during the early empires in China.

The Cornell Classical Chinese Colloquium (CCCC) 古文品讀 is a reading group for scholars interested in premodern Sinographic (古文) text. The group typically meets monthly during the semester to explore a variety of classical Chinese texts and styles. Other premodern texts linked to classical Chinese in Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese have been explored. Presentations include works from the earliest times to the 20th century. Workshop sessions are led by local, national, and international scholars.

All are welcome, with any level of experience with classical Chinese or Sinographic text.
