Haunted: Temporalities of History and (Moving) Image in ‘Asia’

Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 9:00am to 8:30pm

The inaugural 4Asia conference in Fall 2017 takes the notion of haunting as its theme. Across practices, historical events, and media, haunting emerges as a primary and prescient trope of thinking about agency and approaching epistemology in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asia. Scholars from the disciplines of history, cinema and media studies, art history, and cultural studies will explore haunting both in its more literal forms and as metaphor, method, and heuristic for conceptualizing cultural, political, and historical transformation across Asia.

The 4Asias inaugural keynote speaker will be Tani E. Barlow, T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Asian Studies at Rice University.

The conference will take place from November 3–4, 2017 at the A.D. White House.
