Sharon Kinoshita: “Re-Orientations: The Worlding of Marco Polo”
February 13, 2013 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
In her new translation of Marco Polo’s Travels, Sharon Kinoshita reorients a text typically read as a western narrative of first contact, by returning it to its original context, the midpoint of the century chronicled in Abu-Lughod’s Before European Hegemony, and to its original title, The Description of the World.
Sharon Kinoshita is Professor of Literature, and Co-Director of the Center for Mediterranean Studies at UC Santa Cruz.
