2pm-3pm, Sunday 21 February 2016,
Conference Room, Level 4, National Library of Australia, Canberra

Join anthropologist Jinghong Zhang as she presents a vivid account of the transformation of a cottage handicraft into a major industry—with predictable risks and unexpected consequences.

Jinghong Zhang is a postdoctoral fellow at the Australian Centre on China in the World at the Australian National University. Her doctoral research explored how Pu’erh tea was manipulated to become a popular beverage in twenty-first century China.

This event is held in association with the exhibition Celestial Empire: Life in China, 1644-1911.
