This workshop will look at Chinese inventions in their historical and cultural context and the influence they had worldwide. Why was the compass invented and how was it used? Which inventions were important trade items? Is paper preferable to bamboo slats or papyrus? How? We will look at inventions in their original cultural settings and how they traveled beyond China, and we will provide opportunities to explore hands-on classroom activities. Workshop features scholar presenter Robert E. Murowchick, Assistant Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology, Director, International Center for East Asian Archaeology
