Abstract:

"My thesis is a prosopographical study of the princesses of Han times (206 BCE - 220 CE) as a group. A "princess" was a rank conferred on the daughter of an emperor, and, despite numerous studies on Han women, Han princesses as a group have received little scholarly attention. The thesis has four chapters. The first chapter discusses the specific titles awarded to princesses and their ranking system. Drawing both on transmitted documents and the available archaeological evidence, the chapter discusses the sumptuary codes as they applied to the princesses and the extravagant lifestyles of the princesses. Chapter Two discusses the economic underpinnings of the princesses' existence, and discusses their sources of income. Chapter Three analyzes how marriage practices were re-arranged to fit the exalted status of the Han princesses, and looks at some aspects of the family life of princesses. Lastly, the fourth chapter investigates how historians portray the princesses as a group and probes for the reasons why they were cast in a particular light. " --

"Ma thèse se concentre sur une étude des princesses de l'ère de Han (206 AEC (Avant l'Ère Commune) à 220 EC) en tant qu'un groupe. Une princesse était la désignation pour les filles d'un empereur, et malgré les nombreuses études sur les femmes de l'ère de Han, les princesses de l'ère de Han en tant que groupe reçurent peu d'attention du point de vue académique. La thèse comprend quatre chapitres. Le premier chapitre décrit les titres spécifiques étant attribués aux princesses et leur système de classement. Se référant à la fois aux documents et données archéologiques disponibles, le chapitre aborde également les normes somptuaires telles qu'elles s'appliquèrent aux princesses et le mode de vie extravagant des princesses. Le chapitre deux discute sur les fondements économiques par rapport à la vie des princesses, ainsi que leurs sources de revenus. Le chapitre trois décrit les pratiques de mariage arrangées dans le but de s'adapter au statut exalté des princesses de l'ère de Han ainsi que quelques aspects de la vie familiale des princesses. Enfin, le quatrième chapitre aborde comment les historiens illustrent les princesses en tant que groupe, incluant une analyse des raisons pour lesquelles elles furent jugées d'une façon particulière." --
