Professor Wendy Larson, author of the highly acclaimed Zhang Yimou: Globalization and the Subject of Culture, will be the discussant for the panel “Literature from China’s Borderlands: Conforming and Resisting the State” in the Colorado room, Tower Building, on Friday (March 22) at 11:15AM-1:00PM.
Come to the Cambria Press booth (403) to take a look at her book, which has earned much praise.
Larson’s wide-ranging theoretical knowledge and the ambitious articulation of the often slippery idea of culture will attract a large academic readership in cultural studies, Chinese studies, film studies, and history. Her detailed, concrete, and brilliant close readings of the nine films also serve as a rich and useful pedagogical resource for a Chinese film course or a Chinese culture course.”
