26th Annual Joseph & Lucy Lee Memorial Lecture: Wine and Ancient Chinese Literati  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Speaker: Professor Pingqiu An Director of the Center for Ancient Chinese Classics & Archives Peking University

China is the first country in the world to make wine, as the earliest archaeological evidence of wine fermentation has been found at sites in China (circa 7000 BCE). Although wine has been produced and consumed for millennia in China, it was the literati (i.e., primarily literary men but also some literary women) who added sophistication to the culture of wine. This lecture will use poetry, biographies, and historical anecdotes to delineate the relationship among wine, the ancient literati, and Chinese society.
