We'd like to extend to you all an invitation to join us on March 21st from 12:00 until 2:00 in the History Department's common room (Vari Hall 2183) for an exciting Historian's Craft seminar. Our speaker is Y. Yvon Wang, an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, and they will be presenting a talk entitled "Deviance and Liminality: Researching Suicide, Pornography, and Other 'Out There' Subjects in Late Imperial and 20th C China."
Yvon Wang is currently working on a book project about pornography as the intersection of sexuality, print, law enforcement, and cultural authority in early modern and 20th-century urban China. Other interests include the history of everyday consumer goods, popular culture, and comparative/global history. They have published articles on pornography, sodomy, and "hooligans" in Modern China, The Journal of Asian Studies, and Nan nü.
Food and refreshments will be provided.
