Witchcraft, Court Politics, and Religious Mentality in Early China by Professor Mu-chou Poo
Please join UCI Center for Asian Studies in a discussion by Dr. Mu-Chou Poo, discussing the use of witchcraft in court politics and palace intrigues in early and medieval China from the Han to the Tang dynasties.
Dr. Mu-Chou Poo pays particular attention to the social, religious, and medical environment that encouraged a belief in witchcraft and the distinct roles of "wugu" (using poisonous vermin with the help of a wu-shaman) and "zhuzu" (casting curses). Co-sponsored by the UCI Departments of History, Classics, and East Asian Studies and the Center for Asian Studies.
