Science and literature studies have constituted an exciting arena for academic investigation in recent decades. The strengths of science and literature studies include their challenge to a science/humanities dichotomy fortified by specialization in academic disciplines, their inquiry into the relationship between language and knowledge, and a questioning of the gap between values and facts. Such dynamic approaches are reflected in scholarship on the history of science in East Asia. This workshop aims not only to expose the ways that science has been mobilized for various ideological projects and to serve different interests, but also to explore the ways in which the study of science and literature might produce insights that anticipate contemporary debates about the sciences and humanities.
NOTE:This workshop is open to students of the Humanities Center; Science, Technology and Society (STS); Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages (DLCL); History Department; Program in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (HPST); Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS); Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC); Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures (EALC).
