Split China, or, The Historical/Imaginary : Toward a Theory of the Displacement of Subjectivity at the Margins of Modernity

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The following analysis deals in very general terms with the ideological attempt of modern Chinese intellectuals at representing or displacing (as one could argue) the “real” (China?). It, in turn, is an attempt to marginalize those modern Subjects of Culture whose most radical obsession was to claim China (the Real) in the utopian moment of what might be called “cultural modernity” that followed a certain climactic stage of “cultural revolution,” however that is conceived or realized.
