Abstract or Description

This collection of original essays on transnational Chinese cinema examines the corporal, psychological, and affective aspects of experiencing bodies on screen. In effect this book contributes to the intersection of two growing scholarly fields: modern China studies and cinema studies. It is however the growing interdisciplinary study of how bodies get represented, interpreted, and queried that gives this volume its unique and timely focus. Taking Chinese cinematic moments as its exemplary objects, this book engages fruitfully with the material and discursive elements of embodiment. And it interrogates the dynamics between the mind and body involved in bio-cultural practices of cinematic production, distribution, exhibition, and reception.
