Sino-French Exchanges in the Long Nineteenth Century


MLA Convention: January 9-12, 2020 in Seattle, Washington

Deadline: March 15, 2019


This session will focus on Sino-French cultural exchanges throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. We seek to explore the proliferation, significance, and ramifications of French and Chinese literary, artistic, diplomatic, archaeological, and scholarly exchanges throughout the long nineteenth century (1795-1914). We welcome papers from scholars working in literature, poetry, art, comparative cultural studies and other fields to shed light on Sino-French cross-cultural encounters and flows. All methodological and theoretical approaches are welcome. This is a collaborative session co-organized by both the LLC 19th Century French Forum and the LLC East Asian Forum.


Please submit 500-word proposals by March 15 to both Géraldine Fiss and Elizabeth Emery
