Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies URPP Asia and Europe (2006–2017)

Ghosts in Asian Cinemas

International Workshop, November 4-5, 2011


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.
