Three pots and a historian: Jiangxi ceramics in local and global perspective
Gerritsen, Anne Three pots and a historian: Jiangxi ceramics in local and global perspective. In: Oriental Ceramics Society Summer programme 2011, London, 10 May 2011Full text not available from this repository.
This presentation will focus on three fourteenth-century objects (one Jizhou ware item, one stemcup and a blue-and-white pot from Jingdezhen). Much like Neil McGregor has done in his series A History of the World in 100 Objects, Anne will discuss these three objects to tell both local and global stories about Ji’an and Jingdezhen. They are all three to some extent ‘global objects’, because they circulated throughout the early modern world, but they are also local objects, that can highlight the local conditions under which these objects were produced, and the local circumstances that are part of the way we see the objects today. Although the objects are central in this lecture, the speaker’s approach will be very much that of the historian, as she seeks to illuminate the audience on the uses and values of objects for historians and on the idea of ‘global history’.
