BeschreibungSpecters of Asia: Reorienting the Image of Western Political Economy

Philadelphia (05.01.-08.01.2017)

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
