BeschreibungSpecters of Asia: Reorienting the Image of Western Political Economy

This panel explores the role that the encounter with East Asian philosophical, political, and aesthetic traditions play in the development of modern European economic thought, from the proto-Classical theories of the Physiocrats up to the present. We are particularly interested in papers that seek to better grasp, through a genealogy of Western economic thought, its contemporary blindness vis a vis modes of affectivity originating from an East Asian context.

Topics might include but are not limited to:

- the intertwined emergence of aesthetics, political economy, and the idea of the global since the 17th century
- the role the image of Asia played in the critique of political economy in the early 20th century
- the real and mythic Asian provenance of structures of thinking about political and economic forms of life in the West
- alternative genealogies of modernity in East Asian configurations of life, art, and power that do not align with those deriving from Greek Antiquity or early Christianity

This is a call for papers for a proposed special session at the MLA

is not a guarantee of the session's being accepted and running at the MLA
