  • A Conversation with David Eng

February 18, 2:30 p.m., Paley Lecture Hall, Lecture Hall

David Eng presents his engaging point of view on cinema studies, queer studies and Asian studies. A multi-disciplinary scholar, Eng is a professor in the University of Pennsylvania’s English Department, but his specialties lie within and beyond the written word. Eng is a cutting-edge scholar exploring the inter-connectedness of literature, cinema, ethnic studies, sexuality and theory. He will present his new research on “Queer Space in China” through a discussion of the film Lan Yu. Please join us in welcoming one of our city’s most engaging academics. This event is co-sponsored by Center for the Humanities at Temple.
