1400–1450 was a period of change and consolidation for Ming dynasty China (1368–1644).
This conference will look at the roles of imperial and princely courts in China at this time and how China interacted with the wider world.
Over 30 international scholars will explore a wide range of topics, including art and material culture, the military and government, maritime trade and diplomacy, and beliefs and cross-cultural exchanges.
The conference is held in conjunction with the BP exhibition Ming: 50 years that changed China. Research and conference supported by BP, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Sir Percival David Foundation and the James P Geiss Foundation.
