"Listening to Marco Polo"


Yunte Huang, Professor of English Literature at University of California, Santa Barbara, will be presenting a talk entitled, "Listening to Marco Polo," a meditation on sound, money, travel, and translatability.

Professor Huang's books include Transpacific Imaginations: History, Literature, Counterpoetics (2008); Transpacific Displacement: Intertextual Travel in Twentieth-Century American Literature (2002); and Charlie Chan: The Untold Story of the Honorable Detective and HIs Rendezvous with American History (2010). 

This event is sponsored by the Reorientations Interest Group. 


The Reorientations Interest Group is dedicated to rethinking historical doxa along global,

transnational and transpacific axes. Rather than taking reorientational logic as 

mere theme or historical fact, we seek to employ it as an analytical methodology

and powerful critical theory. The group is a collaborative effort between graduate 

students and professors in the English, History, Comparative Literature, American 

Culture, Anthropology, East Asian Studies, and Political Science Departments at 

the University of Michigan,as well as the Confucius Institute and the Center for Chinese Studies. For questions or to join the e-mail list, please contact Nan Da (nda@umich.edu) or Alice Tsay (atsay@umich.edu)
