"Rituals in Confucian China," Yuyu Liu, Sun Yat-sen University, China. Rituals used to play an important role in traditional Chinese society. The performance of rituals embodied Confucian doctrines and was an indispensable tool in maintaining the socio-political order. This lecture gives an introduction to different types of rituals and how they represented and reinforced Confucian socio-ethical values.

Yuyu Liu is an associate professor from Sun Yat-sen University, China. She received her Ph. D in comparative philosophy from Sun Yat-sen University. Her research interests include comparative intellectual history, comparative literature and China studies overseas. She is currently visiting University of California, Berkeley, as a Fulbright scholar on the progress of Sino-American intellectual encounter.
