The final lecture of the Croft Spring Speaker Series features Nicole Huang, associate professor of Chinese at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Tuesday at 7 p.m., on the topic: "'Azalea Mountain' and the Soundscape of Late Mao Culture." This lecture addresses the interface between the visual and the auditory in cinematic culture of late Mao China. Using Azalea Mountain (Dujuan shan) as an example, the lecture highlights the sounds behind the images and calls into question the sensory predominance of the visual over the aural in our current scholarly paradigms. Croft lectures are free and open to the public.
