Winter Semester 2021/22, Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften

Lecture series Sinophone Classicism

During the winter semester 2021-22 Professor Zhivi Yang (Chinese Studies) will organized the lecture series “Sinophone Classicism" in cooperation with the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften in Bad Homburg.

About the lecture series:
In recent years, literary and cultural works that evoke the cultural memories of classical Chinese traditions are gaining popularity in the global Sinophone space and cyberspace. From literary to visual culture, from pop music to fashion, from state policies to daily rituals, these classicist articulations present Chineseness as complicated, multifaceted, multilingual, and cross-cultural. The Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften is dedicating the lecture series »Sinophone Classicism: Chinese Cultural Memories in a Global Space« to exploring these contemporary forms of expression. We invite prominent scholars, writers, and artists to present case studies from their research or to reflect upon their aesthetic practices. The lecture series is conceptualized and organized by Zhiyi Yang, Professor of Sinology at Goethe University, who is currently Goethe Fellow at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften.
