Course Description: 

In this graduate reading course, we will focus on the Yi Zhou shu or Leftover Zhou Documents, supposed to be a collection of documents that Confucius did not include in the classic Shang shu or Documents on High. We will study the text as a whole, and also sample individual chapters from different parts of the text and from different historical contexts, including especially texts for which there are now bamboo-slip manuscripts. Students should have a good command of classical Chinese.
