This exploratory conference aims to bring new work on Ming and Qing literature into dialogue with approaches to the history and theory of media from across the humanities. Following calls to shift attention from the contents to the workings of media forms, we ask how different media shaped the perception and sensory experience of the “literary.” What were the devices, supports, and surfaces that shaped and sustained the possibilities of literary communication?
The D. Kim Foundation for the History of Science and Technology in East Asia, together with the Program in History and Philosophy of Science, Seoul National University, is pleased to announce a summer workshop for younger scholars to be held June 21-23, 2019 at Seoul National University, in Seoul, South Korea. The primary aims of the workshop are twofold.
