New Perspectives on the Old World: China’s earliest dreams


21Jan 2022


  • Zoom
  • Dr. Adam Schwartz (Associate Director, Hong Kong Baptist University Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology)

This lecture shall evaluate dreams of the royal family recorded in Shāng divination inscriptions. Through a typology, with annotation, based on the dreamer, images occurring in their dreams, and action taken as a result, I shall discuss the affect of fear and the importance of how ambition was constantly being defined by memory and powered by overcoming despair.
