Scenes and Visions: Approaches to 20th-Century Chinese Visual Culture
An international group of scholars will examine how the notion of a dynamic and interrelated "visual culture" will introduce new insights and perspectives to our understanding of Chinese societies and cultures since 1900.
Organized by Professor Xiaobing Tang, the two-day conference will bring together scholars from multiple disciplines to examine various visual forms and experiences in twentieth-century China. The four panels will focus on the Republican era, the socialist visual legacy, photography and documentaries from different historical moments. Speakers at the conference include Julia F. Andrews (OSU), Frank Dikötter (University of Hong Kong/London University), Joyce C.H. Liu (Chiao T'ung University), Kuiyi Shen (UCSD), Xiaobing Tang (USC), Haiping Yan (UCLA) and others.
