Heberle Award & Lecture

Prof. Anne Anlin Cheng
Wednesday, September 28, 2022
4:00-5:30 PM
Join us virtually for Professor Cheng's lecture, “Against Use: Asian American Masculinity and the Telos of Utilitarianism.”

What does a concept like “Ornamentalism” have to teach us about Asian American masculinity? Does Asian American masculinity, normally excluded from the realm of aesthetic consideration, have anything to do with ornamentality at all? This talk explores the tension between beauty and ugliness, between usefulness and uselessness, embedded in and provoked by the ornament for the specter of Asiatic masculinity.
