Digital Simulation and Cinematic Ethics: Chinese Filmʼs Response to Globalization

The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University presents a talk by Professor Yomi Braester on Chinese film and its response to globalization.

November 12, 2012 4:30pm to 12:00am

Professor Braester has a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, Yale University (1997). His research focuses on literary and visual practices in modern China and Taiwan—in architecture, advertisement, screen media, and stage arts. He inquires how texts and images form and manipulate our perception of space and history. He is the author of Witness against History: Literature, Film, and Public Discourse in Twentieth-Century China (Stanford UP, 2003) and Painting the City Red: Chinese Cinema and the Urban Contract (Duke UP, 2010), and the co-editor of Cinema at the City’s Edge: Film and Urban Networks in East Asia (with James Tweedie; Hong Kong University Press, 2010).

Professor Braester is the founding director of the UW Summer Program in Chinese Film History and Criticism at the Beijing Film Academy.
