Associate Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures Zhuoyi Wang began a series of 10 invited talks for Henan University in China through online conferencing on April 19. This is the second time Henan has invited Wang because his lectures on Chinese-language cinemas and Hollywood were well-received at the university last summer. This time, Wang will focus on the same topic but with updated content.
In March, Wang also gave an invited Zoom talk titled “The Phoenix and the Flower: What Are the Key Differences between Mulan (2020) and Mulan (1998),” at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). The talk was part of the university’s “Chinese Storytelling in the Global Context” lecture series and based on Wang’s scholarly research and media article on Mulan.
A news report on UIC’s website describes the talk as “wonderfully multifaceted.”
