Queer posthumanism in Ming Wong’s video installations and performance art

Seminar

The presentation examines the work of Singaporean artist Ming Wong and his selected videos that deal with identity, gender and displacement. Wong’s works are concerned with the ways the artist’s body and his queerness inhabit and move across familiar, national and diasporic locations.

The making of womanhood by missionary enterprise in Republican China

Seminar

The long tradition of sex segregation in China opened the field for female missionaries at the turn of the twentieth century. Mission-run girls’ schools, hospitals and publishing ventures for women were environments where many Chinese women first encountered Western ideas. This interaction was initially dominated by foreign missionaries but later shifted to local converts.
