This seminar series brings together scholars who deal with the theme of mobility in
China and Sinophone regions over the past four decades. With a broad geographic range
and covering literature, theatre, film and art, they consider mobility in terms of physical
travel, imagined movement, and the circulation of ideas, information and objects; but
also the glaring absence of movement, be it in terms of social immobility or recent
regional lockdowns. Together, the series explores how movement, restlessness and
stasis have shaped contemporary cultural production.
