The University of Michigan International Institute presents a symposium merging cutting-edge Michigan scholarship on China's modern history, politics, and culture with the lived experiences and memories of the Shanghai American School (SAS)'s surviving post-WWII alumni.
This symposium hosted by the Ohio State University MCLC Resource Center, will bring together speakers from various disciplines and regional specializations to discuss how cultures from Beijing to Samarkand and from Lahore to Hyderabad have found ways of fostering vibrantly multicultural, pluralistic, tolerant, and resilient societies.
This symposium proposes to survey the state of scholarship and discuss the future directions in both museological and art-historical studies. The symposium organizers aspire to bridge the established studies of modernist art history and the newly evolving contemporary art history while casting a wider geographical net beyond East Asia.
The conference will feature up to sixteen student presentations of original research on any aspect of premodern (technically, beginnings to 1911) Chinese humanistic culture, drawing on but not limited to the traditional disciplines of history, literature, religion, art, social sciences, and thought.
