Review: The »Sinophone Classicism« lectures in the winter semester of 2022/23
In the winter semester 2022/23, the lecture series »Sinophone Classicism. Chinese Cultural Memories in a Global Space« entered its third round.
The lecture series was developed by Goethe Fellow Zhiyi Yang, Professor of Sinology at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, as part of her project at the Forschungskolleg. The lectures focus on Sinophone literary and cultural products in the present. They address the question of how Chinese traditions enter into various art forms and which function they assume in this global, increasingly digital Sinophone space.
Public lecture series
In the winter semester of 2022/23, the lecture series was opened by theater scholar Tarryn Li-Min Chun (University of Notre Dame). In her lecture, she examined how digitally supported tourist performances in the PRC mobilize classicist aesthetics and poetics. The second lecture was given by historian Howard Chiang (University of California, Davis). He introduced the concept of »transtopia«, which can serve as a new paradigm for exploring a cross-cultural history of transness. The artist Lei XUE (Darmstadt and Beijing) concluded the lecture series. In his lecture, he looked at the ways in which classical Chinese art finds its way into new forms of virtual and social reality in the post-digital age. The lectures took place both online and in hybrid format, and some of them can be viewed on the Kolleg’s YouTube channel.
The lecture series will continue in the summer semester of 2023. We will inform you about the upcoming dates on our website soon.
