Medium of the Mind

 

Is the mind accessible? Is there a medium that affords access to the mind? How did thinkers and artists, pressurized by scientific knowledge and modern technology, imagine new ways to visualize, channel, control, and simulate invisible forces and connectivities? The conference “Medium of the Mind” addresses these questions by focusing on the negotiation between mind and medium in modern East Asia and beyond. Gathering scholars from different fields, this conference seeks to propose new directions in the study of art, film and media, philosophy of religion, intellectual history and history of knowledge in the twentieth century.

 

This conference is generously co-sponsored by the Department of History of Art & Architecture.

This event is supported by the Yin-Cheng Network for Buddhist Studies.
