About this Event

In order to decipher Madama Butterfly, this conversation disentangles the intricate geopolitical as well as cultural conditions Japan faced in the late nineteenth century vis-à-vis the United States and Europe. To this end, it also explores the images of the heroine that mirrors the amalgamation of condescending Orientalism and fascination with the racial/cultural Other.
