Ghosts in Asian Cinemas
Institute of East Asian Studies in cooperation with the URPP Asia and Europe, Völkerkundemuseum UZH, Institute of Film Studies, Department of Indian Studies
In our workshop, we aim to bring together Asian perspectives on ghosts in both
theoretical texts and aesthetic representations. In order to understand the impact on
modernity of the non-modern in the shape of residual religious orientations and
other images of spectral untimeliness, we will study the continuity of ghost narratives
in modern Asian cultural production.
The lectures and the film showings will be open to the public.
