Seeing the Interior: Cinema, Media, Inverse Visuality

From the invention of microscope, X-rays, to psychoanalysis and cinema, the world is increasingly mediated and constituted by visual technologies and new forms of visualities that collapse the boundaries between visibility and invisibility. This seminar explores visual representations of the "interior" and their mediating roles in the historical and social processes of colonialism, infrastructural revolution, (post-)socialism, and global capitalism in the East Asian and global context. Readings intersect cinema and media studies, globalization and urban studies, science studies, and Marxist feminism.
