OCS Study Day

My goal for 2011 was to get my research ‘out there’; to publish and present a few papers at conferences. Towards these ends, tomorrow I’ll be taking part in the Oriental Ceramic Society‘s Study Day for Early Career Scholars in Chinese Art. I’ll be talking about visual culture, revolutionary romanticism and the novel, Red Crag. A timetable follows.

I’m really looking to hearing about the other speakers’ research and getting the opportunity to visit the Ashmolean Museum again. Not least because of their latest exhibition of Cultural Revolution-era Chinese graphic art.
