This seminar will examine the cultural marketplace of East Asia in the early twentieth century and interrogate the processes by which various forms of cultural capital accrued their value. We invite papers looking at the conscious attempt on the part of intellectuals, politicians, and cultural workers to remake their cultures that led to an era of paradigm shift in which different groups vied with each other for control of both imported and nascent domestic cultural capital. Possible topics might include but are not limited to: the role of foreign text in East Asian writing, comparative anthropological linguistics, theories of translation, and the resonance of early twentieth-century cultural capital for later artistic developments. Please refer to the link to the website of ACLA for more details.
