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 question who owns the past and its representation. Please join us at Oxford on May 28th-30th, 2020, for a discussion on the construction of “authenticity,” both historically and today, in relation to China’s cultural heritage (those objects and texts concerned with China’s past). Applications are now invited for the presentation of papers (~20-30 minutes in length) on this theme.

Established in 2016 by Joseph W. Esherick and Ye Wa, the Esherick-Ye Family Foundation supports solid, careful, empirically based, and clearly reasoned scholarship—the sort of work that Esherick encouraged from the students he mentored at the University of California, San Diego, and that Ye Wa has promoted in archaeology.
