Technology and Social Change in Pre-Modern East Asian Civilization
November 18, 2017
Dudley H. Davis Center
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.
