They’ve added a class on Religion in Modern Asia which is, obviously, right up my alley. Regretfully (because it looks like a really cool class), I’ve had to drop Visual Evidence in Modern China for this. However, as a result of the reading assignment (just spent a couple days reading 100+ pages on visual culture), I have been so intrigued by Pang Lai-kwan’s “The Distorting Mirror: Visual Modernity in China” that I’ve ordered the book. Also just in: Mark MacWilliams, “Japanese Visual Culture.”
