Annetta Fotopoulos (Ph.D. candidate, Asian Literature, Religion & Culture, Cornell University) traces the many depictions of a Southern Song Dynasty military general named Yue Fei throughout Chinese history to comment on contemporary debates over his national hero status. She complicates modern day attempts to project multiethnicity into China’s past in order to portray Yue Fei as a Han Chinese patriot. Recorded Oct. 19, 2015 as part of East Asia Program’s Cornell Contemporary China Initiative (CCCI) Lecture Series.
