Deng Xiaonan is a professor of History at Peking University and a founding member of the Center for Ancient Chinese History. She has been a pioneer in promoting women and gender studies in China and a leader in introducing western scholarship to Chinese students. Professor Deng has also led numerous field expeditions to study the material and visual culture of North China in premodern times. She will present some of the recent discoveries made during these trips and discuss how these change our understanding of the daily lives of Chinese women in the Tang and Song dynasties (8th to 13th centuries).
