assistant professor, Asian languages and literatures, University

Much like music, calligraphy requires no linguistic background
and stipulates no artistic skill to be appreciated. As a centerpiece
of Chinese arts, calligraphy provides us with a visual way to
understand traditional Chinese concepts. This lecture/ demonstration
will sketch the historical development of Chinese calligraphy
and illustrate the major scripts. New York Room, *Mary Woolley
