Chinese ghosts: over an irresistible terror
Auditorium of the Cernuschi Museum at 18H00. Chinese ghosts: over an irresistible terror by Vincent Durand-Dastès, lecturer at INALCO.
China is unquestionably one of the most ghostly nations of the world, judging by the taste it has shown for ghost stories, from the Middle Ages to the present day, despite anathemas and warnings that may have weighed on the works that bear witness to the constancy of their presence. We will try during the conference to propose some points of reference to find one's way through this vast haunted space, by highlighting its constants and particular features.
