Dorothy Ko

As part of the Gardner Center’s Asia Talks series, Dorothy Ko, professor of history at Barnard College, will discuss her recent book, The Social Life of Inkstones: Artisans and Scholars in Early Qing China (University of Washington Press).

"Ko fires the imagination in her examination of the inkstone in its full richness, both as a writing tool and a sculptural work of art in early Qing dynasty society. These objects tell us complex stories about artistic competition, gendered values, and the many roles of craft in eighteenth-century China." —Foong Ping.

Presented by the Gardner Center for Asian Art & Ideas. Click below for more information and to purchase tickets.
