From China to West Africa: Mediations and Translations along the Tea Trail

Ute Röschenthaler



Tea was traded from China to Mali in West Africa across different geographical regions, political economies, cultural contexts, and religious affiliations. It was received by enthusiastic consumers, stern critics, and often assumed national importance, following its translation into local meanings and cultural practices. Lecture of Ute Röschenthaler, IFK_Senior Fellow 2019.
