Going Places with Zhuangzi
A talk by Haun Saussy
Friday 18 May 2007 at 5.15pm
Seminar Room, CRASSH, 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge
The foundational Daoist text Zhuangzi – in its imagining of impossible, superhuman, excessive experiences – has been reached for by many when trying to account for exotic things. Haun Saussy will trace this pattern through a few examples (drawn from Buddhism, Jesuit writings, French poetry) and propose some consequences for the theory of cultural appropriation.
There will be a wine reception after the talk. If you wish to attend this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
