Seals of Appraisal: Inventing and Reinventing the Reign Mark in Late Imperial China

A talk by Bruce Rusk, Associate Professor, Department of Asian Studies, University of British Columbia.

Dr. Rusk's research interests include issues of authenticity and forgery, especially in textual studies and material culture of early modern China (Ming and Qing periods); the transmission and preservation of knowledge, including cultures of collection, book production, and artistic reproduction in early modern China; the history of philology in pre-modern China, especially the Confucian canon and traditions of scriptural scholarship; and writing systems in East Asia, comparative grammatology, cultures of the written word, and interaction with other scripts.
