Distinguished Lecture Series: Strategies in Global Chinese Literary and Cultural Studies
25th April 2018 - 25th April 2018
Project Room, 50 George Square
Part of the Confucius Institute for Scotland Distinguished Lecture Series 2018
This talk considers two approaches in contemporary Chinese literary, cultural, and film studies. One is to de-centralise, de-territorialise, and pluralize the object of China. The other is to re-territorialise and re-centre China, making China proper the object and subject of critical inquiry. This divergence in approach is seen in the recent debate between some Mainland Chinese and overseas lm scholars on Chinese-language cinema and the writing of film history.
Our speaker Professor Sheldon Lu will discuss the characteristics, strengths and possible weaknesses in each approach, as well as issues behind Chinese-language cinema and the writing of film history.
Professor Sheldon Lu is Department Chair of Comparative Literature, University of California.
All welcome - booking is required. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
