Today, what do global cultures and philosophies look like from “other” points of view? What is post-Occidentalism, or what is Orientalism in this age of trans-national techno-capitalism? Focusing on the geo-cultural binary, “East/West” or “Orient/Occident,” which still stagnates most of socio-politically “deconstructive” or “re-territorialized” discourses such as post-colonialism, post-Anglo-Euro-centrism, post-democracy, post-racism, neo-conservatism, neo-Sino-centrism, etc., this seminar aims to foster cutting-edge cross-disciplinary dialogues that re-read and re-create the stories and theories about a world that consists of not only great walls but open gates.
