Proceedings of Navigating Visions, 2020.

Through the lens of “navigation” and “relocation,” the symposium Navigating Visions aimed to contribute to knowledge about Asian and Pacific contexts, and the Asia-Pacific world, by investigating the important role of transit, mobilities, and encounters in the history of art and visual culture. Papers were presented by graduate and post-doctoral students whose interdisciplinary approaches contributed to interpretations of art, representation and visual culture. Held at Hart House at the University of Toronto on November 22, 2019, the symposium was accompanied by an art exhibition featuring emerging artists who explored issues related to Asia and Pacific identities in Toronto.
