“The Yunnan Chronicles: A Field Guide to Southwest China’s Past” with David G. Atwill

Humanities Institute Faculty Scholar in Residence, Spring 2023

From the ancient bronzes of the Dian Kingdom to Kunming’s oldest noodle house, The Yunnan Chronicles seeks to bring China’s indigenous and often misunderstood past into clearer focus. My study tells the singular tale of China’s remote southwest by examining a broad constellation of people, places, and spaces central to Yunnan’s past. Tracing the broad outlines of Yunnan’s unique historical trajectory, todays talk will focus on the ninth-century Nanzhao pagodas of Dali, Yunnan warlord Long Yun (1884–1962), and the recent rise of Shangri-la Wine (produced and bottled by Moët Hennessy).
