Martin J. Powers, Sally Michelson Davidson Professor of Chinese Arts and Cultures at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, has always been a towering beacon in the field, trailblazing fresh methodologies and breaking down academic stereotypes on Chinese culture. In celebration of his well-deserved retirement from teaching, Prof. Powers’ graduate advisees and colleagues from around the world will convene an international conference on Chinese art. This academic gathering will reflect upon ways the field of sinology has changed over the course of Prof. Powers’ long academic career and the new directions it is developing, or should develop, in the future.

A public reception follows Friday’s session at Weiser Hall, 10th floor.

This event is sponsored by Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Additional support is provided by the Department of the History Art, University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) as well as Liu Jiuzhou and Qian Ying.
