Shipwrecks and Submerged Worlds: Contesting Fields of Art, Archaeology, and Politics

Recent discoveries of shipwrecks in South China Sea, the primary transit route for the world’s shipping between China and the Middle East and Europe in pre-modern times, have caused a sensation among scholars and the general public alike. These ships contained large quantities of trade goods, ranging from ceramics to coins and precious metals, and bear witness to the prosperous and active exchange of goods and ideas between East and West. Focusing on the past and the present of major findings, this lecture addresses not only the production and reception of trade goods in pre-modern China, but also the troubled relationship between archaeology and politics in the modern era, and the unique challenges shipwrecks present to museums.
