Orientalist tropes were a dominant feature of European cinema in the 1920s. This talk explores the types of film that influenced Henri Matisse’s paintings of Odalisques produced during this period and shows how popular cinematic culture set the stage for an exploration of gender, identity, and exoticism in painting. Challenging familiar interpretations of Matisse’s depictions of women in Orientalist costume, this talk examines the theme of female agency in the works against the background of tourism, fashion, and colonialism.

New initiatives such as “Internet Plus” and “Digital Silk Road” further exemplify the current administration’s technological ambitions, prompting some to predict a bifurcation of the Internet with one part led the U.S. and the other part led by China.
