This volume's research essays span two millennia and nearly the full territorial extent of East and Inner Asia. They highlight Patricia Berger's vast range of expertise as well as general themes that run through her work. Topics include art's relationship to political power and collective memory, the cultural and material fluency of Qing objects and texts, multiplicity and self-fashioning through portraiture and dance, and conformity and authority in relation to selfhood and modern and contemporary art.
