“Visualizing Global Asia at the Turn of the 20th Century,” an academic conference hosted by MIT Visualizing Cultures and Yale CEAS will be held Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1 at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
This will be one of the first academic conferences devoted to "image-driven scholarship" and teaching about Asia in the modern world. We have selected scholars of history, art history, history of photography, and history of technology specializing in China, Korea, Japan, United States, Europe and the Philippines to discuss how to integrate visual and textual media in research and teaching, using to the fullest the opportunities presented by the new technologies and the use of the internet as a publishing platform.
All conference sessions are open to public, and we encourage you to spread the word among your friends and colleagues.
