Oriental Interiors: Identity, Performance, Space

Sunday, November 10, 2013 - 9:10pm
Dr. John Potvin, Concordia University

Since the publication of Edward Said's ground breaking Orientalism 35 years ago, numerous studies have explored the West's fraught long-lasting fascination with the so-called Orient. These studies have focused their critical attention on the literary and pictorial arts, often forgetting the importance the interior has played in the formation of perceptions and receptions of the exoticized Other. This volume specifically seeks to explore the perceptions, importations and adaptations of Oriental interiors to and within a Western context. Orientalist spaces took numerous and varied forms, whether private or public, civic, domestic or commercial, all of which are of interest here.
