Understanding Authenticity in China's Cultural Heritage Conference

A multi-day conference on the construction of "authenticity" and its consequences in China's cultural heritage.

What we deem to be genuine or fake is not an objective determination, but something that we agree upon as communities. Debates about authenticity, moreover, are often intimately bound to the question who owns the past and its representation. Please join us virtually on 16-20 March 2021, for discussions on the construction of “authenticity,” both historically and today, in relation to China’s cultural heritage.

“Understanding Authenticity in China’s Cultural Heritage” is generously sponsored by Oxford University’s Knowledge Exchange Seed Fund, TORCH Heritage Seed Fund, The British Academy and Leverhulme Trust, Oxford China Centre, St. Hugh’s College and Pembroke College.

16 March 14:00-15:30 GMT Keynote

20 March 13:00-16:00 GMT Session 4
