Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2017. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

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
