Tea of the Samurai in Times of War and Peace


A public lecture by

Morgan Pitelka
Sunday, November 22, 2009
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Lenart Auditorium
UCLA Fowler Museum
Occidental College professor of history Morgan Pitelka examines how tea gatherings and collections of tea-related art played significant roles in the lives and careers of elite samurai between the 15th and 19th centuries. Samurai studied tea ritual, fetishized tea utensils, employed tea masters as diplomats and art connoisseurs, and came to understand immersion in tea culture as an opportunity for the cultivation of distinct warrior values.
The UCLA Asia Institute is pleased to sponsor the Fowler OutSpoken Lecture Series in conjunction with the exhibition Steeped in History: The Art of Tea , on view at the Fowler Museum at UCLA, August 16 through November 29, 2009
