I presented at the USC Pacific Asia Museum a week ago!
Here’s a blurb:
“Melissa Chan presented at the USC Pacific Asia Museum on Thursday, January 18th. Her talk was titled, “Martial Arts in 1960s Chinese Cinema: Analyzing Media Intersections in the Sinophone Sphere.” The presentation examines King Hu’s martial arts films and their connection to the emergence of martial arts films as a genre in Chinese and Sinophone contexts. By looking at the intersection between animation, literature, and cinema, her presentation discusses how Chineseness is negotiated through visual representations and sonic landscapes. ”
