In addition to writing with the brush and ink, late imperial Chinese poets engraved their words onto cups and chairs, walking sticks, slabs of stone, and musical instruments. This talk examines how such practices challenge our own notions of writing and reading literature.

Tom Kelly received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 2017 and is a first-year fellow in the Michigan Society of Fellows. His current research explores the relationship between Chinese literature and the decorative arts in the early modern world.
