The Wei-Jin period (220-420 AD) was one of the most chaotic in Chinese imperial history. This turbulent time nonetheless produced distinguished literati (mingshi) of formidable talent and charisma. In this talk, we focus on the figure of Ruan Ji ( 阮籍 , 210-263 AD) and try to understand the pressures that faced the literati of this period and the difficulties that underlay their sometimes eccentric responses.

East&West Dialogue is our monthly program where guest speakers of different cultural backgrounds come as volunteers and share their life stories, knowledge, thoughts, and have conversations with our audience. We hope this individual-level communication will promote mutual understanding among people of different heritages, and the experiences of guest speakers can help the audience, mostly but not limited to first-generation immigrants, to live in their new country with a bit more ease and grace. For that, we truly thank our guest speakers for their time, expertise, and warm hearts for immigrants!
