Identités en flammes : Orient et Occident se rencontrent dans la palette de Shiba Kōkan (1738-1818)

  • Giovanni Tarantino

This chapter takes a hanging scroll by Shiba Kōkan (1747–1818) as a starting point to explore the emotional response of individuals and communities from distant cultures and places in the face of disasters, in particular earthquakes and fires. Images of disasters, and how they were dealt with, travelled through time and space, begging the question as to what role transcultural entanglements played in these responses.
