Divining the Past: Dream Encyclopedic Knowledge in China
October 25, 2019, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Join us for a talk by Brigid E. Vance, Assistant Professor in the History Department at Lawrence University. In this talk, Professor Vance asks what happens to dreams after they are dreamed? How was such knowledge about dreams disseminated in China? What was the value of earlier knowledge about dreams in the Ming dynasty? This talk traces the legacy and cultural import of dreams and dream divination from the Song (960-1279) through the Ming (1368-1644) dynasties by examining a dream encyclopedia.
