"Cold War After China," Shanghai, China 27-29 June 2014

ASAP/6 Shanghai: Modern and Postmodern Arts: China and the Present

I am soliciting proposals for a roundtable discussion on the broad topic of "Cold War After China."

The Cold War mandated that, from a Western perspective, China was "lost" in 1949 with the creation of the People's Republic of China. But this perspective depends on a bipolar global imaginary that views the world narrowly, as two opposed ideological camps. The "Cold War After China" roundtable seeks to complicate this view by exploring how the rise of China as a global power during the Cold War has shaped aesthetic, cultural, ethical, and political identities of the contemporary arts not only in China, but indeed around the world.

In keeping with the conference theme, paper proposals might touch on such things as:

Cervantes' Don Quixote (1605/15), Montesquieu's Lettres persanes (1721), MacPherson's Ossian (1761), Mérimée's La Guzla (1827), Louÿs's Chansons de Bilitis (1894), Raja Rao's Kanthapura (1938), many of Borges' short stories, Makine's La Fille d'un héros de l'Union soviétique (1990), and Doubled Flowering: From the Notebooks of Araki Yasusada (1997) are only some of the numerous – often canonized – original texts that invite the reader to read them as if they were translations, to imagine a preceding original produced in a different language and for a different audience.

Unmasking Masquerade: Exploring Disguise and Display Across the Humanities (14-16 Feb 2014)

Friday, October 11, 2013 - 1:53pm
McGill University English Graduate Student Association

"'Masquerades, I have generally heard said, were more silly than wicked,'" declares one respectable character in Samuel Richardson's novel Sir Charles Grandison (1754), "'But they are now, I am convinced, the most profligate of all diversions.'" Richardson's disapproval of the bal masqué's vulgar dissipation represents just one incarnation of a rich and multivalent concept. In various guises masquerade capers and creeps through the humanities, eluding any single form or function: noun or verb? literal or figurative? sinister or celebratory? deceitful or mischievous? We are seeking papers, panels, and creative projects that are inspired by this panoply of meaning to address the idea of masquerade in any way – material and/or theoretical.
