The Tweets of the Young: The Learning Experience of the Children in Medieval China
黃郁庭 Wong Yuk-ting
Date: 17 April, 2015 (Friday)
Venue: Rm 730, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, HKU
This discussion is going to concentrate on the learning experience of the children in Medieval China, while the issue of learning age will be the major focusing point. This will match with the attempt to quantify the children’s learning experience. First of all, we shall review the process of how children interact with the Five Classics. In addition, the status of The Analects, The Classic of Filial Piety and other reading materials, added with writing and calligraphy, in child education will be considered. Through assessing the age and objects of children’s learning, we shall have a better understanding in the socio-cultural atmosphere during the Han-Tang period.
