MARTIAL ARTS:
Civil and Military Interactions in Ming Dynasty China
 
Kathleen Ryor
Professor, Carleton College
 
Saturday, April 5, 2 p.m.
The relationship between samurai culture and the arts is an important part of Japanese art history. In China, however, during the Ming dynasty, military men often participated broadly in scholarly and artistic activities, while many influential literati actively engaged in pursuits associated with the warrior class.
