Global Information Flows and Chinese Responses to Tragic News Events
Speaker: Vanessa Fong
Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Education, Harvard University
Time: 12 noon
Site: 1636 School of Social Work Building, 1080 S. University
In this presentation, Professor Fong will examine how Chinese citizens in China and abroad used discourses of Chinese backwardness to make sense of tragic news events while simultaneously trying to avoid becoming identified with that backwardness. She focuses on various interpretations of NATO's bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade in 1999 and the 2003 global outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and explore how Chinese citizens negotiated between their own ambivalent national loyalties and the contradictory local, unofficial, national, and international narratives in which these events were embedded. These negotiations suggest that global information flows are creating a transnational panopticon that increasingly enables neoliberal governmentality to operate on transnational levels.
Vanessa Fong is an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University.

The Metropolitan History Workshop presents a public lecture:
Landscapes of Knowledge: History and the High-Tech Suburb,from the
Bay Area to Bangalore
Margaret Pugh O'Mara
Assistant Professor of History
University of Washington
Friday, Sept. 14, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Angell Hall, Room G115
Margaret O'Mara is the author of Cities of Knowledge: Cold War
Science and the Search for the Next Silicon Valley (Princeton,
2005). Her lecture is drawn from a new book project that examines
the places where knowledge is produced -- university campuses,
research parks, high-tech districts -- as visible and valuable parts
of the metropolitan landscape. Comparing high-tech suburbs in the
US, China, and India, the talk will consider the evolution of these
distinctive urban forms and their wider political and economic
significance, from the early twentieth century to the age of outsourcing.

Kunié Sugiura, "Shadow & Ephemera"
Abstract: Photograms are interesting for their open process and experimental nature. But, gradually through experience with them, the esthetics of Japan comes through them. The outline of flowers is attractive and easy to recognize, moreover, they represent the ephemeral qualities of flowers. The same is true when looking at living creatures such as cats, frogs, and fish. Their fragility and their dependence on us is a warning to us. Life is short. We must pay attention to it, not waste it, and enjoy every day.
Kunié Sugiura (BFA, School of the Art Institute, Chicago) is an artist who chooses the medium of the photogram to preserve the shadows of flowers, creatures, and living beings. Born in Nagoya, Japan, Ms. Sugiura resides in New York.
