"The Inter-Asian Travels of the Global White Snake," by Dr. Liang Luo
The Global White Snake examines the Chinese White Snake legends and their extensive, multidirectional travels within Asia and across the globe. Such travels across linguistic and cultural boundaries have generated distinctive traditions as the White Snake has been reinvented in the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and English-speaking worlds, among others. This talk focuses on the multidirectional, inter-Asian voyages of the White Snake legends, with special attentions to the legends’ reinvention in Japanese and Korean films from the early 1950s to the late 1960s. These Japanese- and Korean-language films guide us to the excavation of Hong Kong as a Cold War cultural powerhouse, connecting mainland China with Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, exporting to Southeast Asia and internationally, and revamping the White Snake legends in vivid shapes and colors.
