Event Details

In this presentation, Yuhang Li will show that through the multi-mediated presentations of a garment to commemorate her birth, Cixi inscribed herself into a symbolic and ritualistic world that secured her legitimacy as a de facto ruler; at the same time, she combined a fashion design and a new media, photography, to display her costume and created a new mode of ritual for imperial birthday celebrations.

This presentation is a part of our History of Clothing Series.
