LRCCS Conference | Understanding Media: New Perspectives on Ming–Qing Literature

Friday, April 12, 2019
9:00 AM-5:00 PM
Room 1010 | 10th Floor Event Space Weiser Hall Map
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? How can the concept of media help us understand the travels of literary works through the Ming-Qing across diverse formats—from the oral to the analog to the digital—up into the present day? What critical terms and keywords emerge from our primary sources to describe how early modern readers and writers understood what we now call “media”?
