About Our Workshop

Arts and Politics of East Asia (APEA) is an interdisciplinary workshop that brings together graduate students, faculty members, and sometimes guest speakers to discuss their current work on the interaction of aesthetics, political economy and textual, visual and physical media of pre-modern, modern and contemporary East Asia. The workshop serves as a space for graduate students and invited presenters from varied disciplines to share their work in progress, discuss major cross-regional themes, and engage together the work of noted scholars in the field in a rigorous yet collegial atmosphere. 

If you have any questions, or are interested in presenting at the Art and Politics of East Asia workshop, please contact the student coordinators.
