The Worst Chinese Poetry: A Virtual Roundtable
This event is phase two of "The Worst Chinese Poetry: A Virtual Workshop" held by the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies at UCSB. This event is open to the public. It lasts two days (June 1-2), and you are welcome to choose either day, or both, to attend.

Day 1 (June 1) will feature roundtables based upon our larger workshop held in April. Fourteen scholars, clustered by theme, will discuss the topics Vulgarity and Frivolity; Commenting, Framing, and Judging; Appropriation and Aesthetics; and Foreignness and Chineseness.

Day 2 (June 2) will begin with a reflection on the workshop and project led by Ronald Egan, Richard John Lynn, and Michelle Yeh, then will shift to a free-form discussion open to all, addressing the aesthetic, social, and political standards of what made certain poems "bad" throughout Chinese history.
Meeting is over, you can not register now. If you have any questions, please contact Meeting host: Yiming Ma.
