Lecture: Different Audiences, Different Agendas

Join the Portland Art Museum for Different Audiences, Different Agendas: Why Context Matters when Thinking About Afterlife Goods in Early China, a lecture by Professor K.E. Brashier, Chair of the Religion Department, Reed College. Brashier’s illustrated lecture will begin with the first category of grave goods intended to satisfy the dead, then turn to the second category of remembrance tools used by the living lineage to preserve their dead, and finally draw upon early texts to demonstrate how writers distinguished between these two categories of afterlife existence.
