Technology and Social Change in Pre-Modern East Asian Civilization

November 18, 2017

The impact on society of technological developments can only be understood from a deep historical perspective. This session will explore technological developments from the early history of China and Japan (such as iron weapons, rice field farming, and wood block printing) and examine their impact, both positive and negative, intended and unforeseen, on the East Asian world before the modern era.

Led by: Erik Esselstrom, Associate Professor of East Asian History, University of Vermont

Funded project of the Vermont Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
