Understanding Media: New Perspectives on Ming–Qing Literature

This international conference examines the critical role of media in the making and remaking of Ming-Qing literature. Invited scholars will bring to light the supports and surfaces that shaped sensory experiences of the “literary.” Some panels will trace the lives of literary works from the oral to the analog to the digital; others will consider how early modern readers understood what we now call “media.” Over the course of two days, the conference proceeds from the early modern moment to rethink 21st-century understandings of “new” media.
