Mingyuan Hu teaches in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds. Her monograph Fou Lei and His Alibis (Leiden: Brill, forthcoming 2016) draws on archival research in Paris and examines, through the life and work of a francophone art critic, who lived between two revolutions in China’s modern history, questions of transculturation.
Mingyuan is currently writing her second book, Spaces of Chinese Calligraphy: An Art Historical Investigation. In this seminar she will dissect the methodological experimentation central to this project, with the work of Fabienne Verdier as a case in point.
The venue for this talk is Room G19 in the Old Mining Building at the University of Leeds. It is free to attend and all are welcome.
This event is organised by the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies as part of the spring research seminar series.
