Representing the Other in Traditional China

Post election, I changed the paper assignment in my class “Self and Society in Premodern Chinese Literature” to a poster session. The topic is about “the other” in traditional China. The other involves the relation between people of different gender, ethnicity, geographical areas, and involves communications in culture and technology. We hope those in power will have a decent understanding of the diversity of people and culture in our shared world.

Here are a few examples:
