The Portrait of an Artist as a Pathographer: On Writing Illnesses and Illnesses in Writing

Health is silence, illness voice. The lived-body (leib), the body as it is lived and the body which is not merely a corporeal body (korper), speaks through illness (Sarkar, 2019). The latter is a ‘psychosomatic’ condition of not being at ease with-the-world and is, both pathologically and conceptually, different from disease and sickness (Aho & Aho, 2008). This then becomes insignificant whether that illness is the illness of the mind or the body— as the body which is lived is beyond the Cartesian dualism. It is more of an ambiguous continuum of mind-body entanglement rather than the more simplistic mind/body binary. Mental illnesses, therefore, are as much as of the body as physical illnesses are of mind.

This issue of JCLA aims to address this problem by inviting papers that explore Chinese aesthetics, the role it has played in international and transcultural aesthetics, and the most promising ways it could contribute to these fields: 

1. Chinese Aesthetic Theory (Traditional and Contemporary);

Life Writing as Political Voice

Sunday, May 17, 2020

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in. As such, examining the life writing of those who participated or observed city protests can be intriguing and add a personal element to group politics. This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.
