Special Event

Saturday, October 22, 9 am - 5 pm
Helmut Stern Auditorium

When and under what circumstances do people invent the concept of “the other”? This question has been posed and responded to many times over in a largely modern, colonial, and Eurocentric context. However, the invention of “others” is not simply a European prerogative: it is a practice common to cultures and societies throughout the world, past and present. This timely symposium proposes to examine these issues in a visually rich, historically grounded, and contextualized collection of talks and discussions that focus critical analytic attention on the manifold Asian imagination and its invention of “others.” It seeks to highlight and examine the robust and visually potent technologies of “othering” deployed in Asia by Asians past and present while addressing the multiple contexts, regional variations, and sets of interests, involved. In this way, the symposium will focus on both multi-media representations of "others" and on how and why these variable constructions were mobilized around complex cross- and intra-cultural negotiations over time.

Speaker details are posted on the History of Art website www.lsa.umich.edu/histart.
