Event Description

Dr Amy Matthewson, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London 30 November 2020 Amy Matthewson is Senior Teaching Fellow and Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. Her wider research interests include cultural and political history, race relations, visual and material culture, and the processes of ideologies and epistemologies. Beyond the Cartoon: Politics, Art, and Chinoiserie in ‘Punch’ Magazine in the Late Nineteenth Century This paper explores the relationship between images and the power of association by investigating symbols of ‘Chineseness’ in the British satirical magazine Punch during the late nineteenth century. The series of cartoons lampooning the New Aesthetic Movement and its participants have generated much interest and have therefore already been subjects of critical analysis. This paper revisits this series but explores these cartoons within a geopolitical framework of understanding. By applying Roland Barthes’ theory in Rhetoric of the Image, the satirical images provide interesting insight into the relationship between art, ideas, politics, and power. The aim is to consider associations of China and ‘Chineseness’ that move beyond the cartoon to reveal subtle insight into broader ideologies of Empire and race relations.
