Disorientations. Writing China in Latin America

“Disorientations” argues that the intellectual discussion of China in Latin America has not taken place within academia, but rather in a network of discourses around criticism, the literary market, fiction, and diplomacy. Instead of seeing this as a limitation, the project understands that the geographical distance from the object of study and the porous disciplinary boundaries at stake yield to a profound interrogation of both the hegemonic archive of the Orient and the effects of cultural epistemologies in general. By scrutinizing nineteenth-century ethnographies, modernist translations, Maoist print culture, concrete poetry, and contemporary narrative, this project gathers an unprecedented archive of China in Spanish and Portuguese, and proposes a comparative entryway into the study of Asia and Latin America.
