Join us as we celebrate the opening of our new exhibition Qing: China’s Multilingual Empire. Exploring the languages and culture of China’s last dynasty, the exhibition features John Rylands Library documents curated with support from the Confucius Institute.
We’ll hear from exhibition curators Dr Johannes S. Lotze (Postdoctoral Fellow in Medieval Chinese History, Hebrew University of Jerusalem) and Julianne Simpson (Collections and Discovery Manager, John Rylands Research Institute and Library). This will be followed by a live audience Q&A.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the foundation of the Confucius Institute at the University of Manchester. Over this period, the Institute has established itself as a resource for the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, the wider University and the local Manchester community. It has become an important asset with an excellent reputation for supporting access to Chinese language learning and Chinese culture in the North West.
