Title: "Two Woman-authored Entombed Epitaphs from the Tang Dynasty (618–907)"

Abstract: The “Entombed Epitaph and Preface for He [Jian 何簡 (685–742)],” written by his wife, Ms. Xin of Longxi 隴西辛氏 (n.d.) and the “Entombed Epitaph for Cao Yin 曹因,” written by his wife, Ms. Zhou 周氏 (n.d.) are two of only three female-authored muzhiming extant from the Tang dynasty. Both texts are relatively short (285 and 144 characters respectively) and we should have time to work our way through both. I hope in particular to focus on the authors descriptions of their respective husbands’ career and character, and to discuss to what degree, if any, we might identify how their texts may have differed from those of male authors.
