When: Tue Oct 24 2017 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Description: Robert E. Hegel, Ph.D., Liselotte Dieckmann Professor of Comparative Literature and Professor of Chinese at Washington University, St. Louis Among the favorite characters in all of China’s fiction, past and present, is the Monkey King, Sun Wukong. His first image is that of a demonic and scary predator on humanity before he was “tamed” to become guardian and counselor for a brave monk who traveled from China to India to get Buddhist scriptures. Thereafter he became a protective deity in many Chinese communities and finally, in the twentieth century, the representative of a variety of political ideals—and the subject of countless movies, cartoons, and video games. This talk will introduce the Monkey King as he has grown into new roles over the last five hundred years. Dr. Hegel is giving two other talks at Elling Eide Center and Ringling Museum on Oct. 25th and 26th.

Marilyn Francus, Professor of English, West Virginia University and author of Monstrous Motherhood, will discuss how Frankenstein and the conventions of motherhood that shaped Shelley’s novel endure, and continue to shape our notions of motherhood today.
