Leisure and Chinese Culture gathers eight Chinese studies scholars across disciplinary and historical boundaries to explore the place of leisure in both ancient and modern China. Topics include literary writing, travel, the appreciation of the performing arts, material culture, landscaping and the arrangement of living space, as well as cuisine, tea and incense. Chinese leisure culture has implications for intellectual history and debates about the individual, subjectivity, the interpretation of the classics, as well as the relationship between pleasure, politics, and spiritual enlightenment. Open to the public.
