- 3:30 - 4:30 - Inter-Asian Cinematic Legacies of the White Snake
Zoom - https://pugetsound-edu.zoom.us/j/83189320532
Liang Luo, Professor of Chinese at the University of Kentucky will be discussing her book, The Global White Snake. The Global White Snake examines the Chinese White Snake legends and their extensive, multidirectional travels within Asia and across the globe. Such travels across linguistic and cultural boundaries have generated distinctive traditions as the White Snake has been reinvented in the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and English-speaking worlds, among others. This talk focuses on the inter-Asian voyages of the White Snake legends, with special attention to the legends’ reinventions in Japanese and Korean films from the early 1950s to the late 1970s. These Japanese- and Korean-language films were engaged in multidirectional dialogues with films from Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan during the Cold War. As a result, they left powerful imprints on contemporary stage and screen adaptations of the White Snake legends in the Sinophone and anglophone worlds.
