The Women's Studies Program Fourth Fall Lecture Series Presentation

Event Description:
The Women's Studies Program Fourth Fall Lecture Series presents "Gender and Maintenance: Chinese Temple Practice in the Nineteenth Century" by William C. Wooldridge, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of History. 
Chinese religious practices centered around temples: physical structures that offered proximity to gods as well as space for communal activities.  Yet temples required maintenance; their terracotta could snap or crumble, their rafters crack or collapse; their walls degrade or tumble.  Temple leaders often described repairs as a means of honoring the gods housed in the temple.  Because maintenance involved designated activities at regular intervals, ultimately to benefit gods, maintenance often overlapped with ritual.  Using stele inscriptions, temple records and archives from several sites in nineteenth-century China, this paper uses maintenance as a way to show how men and women interacted to create temple community.
