Photographic Encounters: Visual Technologies and Missionary Modernity in Republican China
Across the first half of the twentieth century, American Protestant and Catholic missionaries produced one of the largest bodies of photographic images – still and moving – of any foreign group in China. They engaged in prolific visual practices that merged global trends in amateur photography and filmmaking with new ideas about modern missions and Christian internationalism. In this talk, Prof. Joseph Ho reconstructs intersections between visual technologies and Sino-US encounters in Republican China, exploring how missionary cameras mediated ground-level experiences and transnational world-making projects behind and in front of the lens.
