Terracotta Warriors after the First Emperor: Re-evaluating the Qin Legacy in the Han
Start Date: 10/5/2017Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 10/5/2017End Time: 8:30 PM
Event Description:
The First Emperor’s (r. 221-210 BCE) terracotta army has captured the world’s attention since its first discovery in the 1970s. The thousands of marionette-like figures standing in formation testify to an administration that had achieved unprecedented military power. The First Emperor’s famous assemblage, however, was not the last terracotta army to be commissioned. His original assemblage inspired a long line of clay armies in the Western Han dynasty (202 BCE-9 CE). This presentation will examine these new army figurines and their relationship to the Qin precedent, reflecting on their unique style and considering what the armies reveal about warfare and politics in China’s first long-lasting empire. This lecture is part of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecture series. 

Allison R. Miller (Ph.D., Harvard University) is an assistant professor of Asian art history at Southwestern University, specializing in the art and archaeology of early China. Her research focuses on ritual architecture, court art (early Chinese jades, terracotta figurines), gifting and patronage, ornament, and early aesthetic theory. Miller offers broad surveys of East Asian art and architecture in addition to specialized courses on a diverse range of topics including: landscape art, contemporary art and architecture, and ancient Chinese civilization. Her work has been supported by fellowships and grants from the Fulbright Foundation and the Fairbank and Asia Centers at Harvard University, among others.
