Transformations in Boundary Crossings: disciplinary, cultural, and geographical explorations of exchange in China and Japan
21st March 2019, 09:00 to 15:30,
Ustinov Room, Van Mildert College, Durham University
‘Transformations in Boundary Crossings: disciplinary, cultural, and geographical explorations of exchange in China and Japan’ is a one-day workshop that brings together scholars of Asia across divergent subfields to consider the kinds of textual and visual redefinitions that take place as historical evidence and experiential perspectives move across various conceptual, physical, and methodological boundaries.
Approaches of interdisciplinary studies, questioning present-day (and historical) disciplinary designations and categories, exploring the ‘work’ of boundary-figures, and transformations of meaning as evidence moves from one context to another all represent critical points of intervention in the field of history as well as the diverse fields such as anthropology, scientific thought, as well as visual and material culture. The workshop includes sessions of research presentations as well as one on the Oriental Museum, followed by a tour of the collections.
A programme for the event will be posted in due course.
