Dear colleagues,

Call for Papers

*Extrême-Orient, Extrême-Occident*

*Caricature in East Asia: *

*Circulations and Crossed Perspectives*

Caricature can be defined as a graphic work which, through exaggeration,
incongruity or reversal, transgresses the usual figurative and aesthetic
codes of a given cultural area. The situation of a character, the presence
of certain attributes, or even graphic distortion, can contribute to this
form of subversion.

The study of graphic satire, and more specifically of caricature in all its
forms, has grown considerably over the last twenty years. France has been
particularly involved in this field due in particular to the recent attacks
on press cartoonists. However, caricature is neither a recent creation nor
a feature unique to the West. As the book *Asian Punches: A Transcultural
Affair* (Hans Harder & Barbara Mittler (eds.), Springer, 2013) shows,
newspaper cartoons spread around the world from the 19th century onwards,
and from then on they became part of a global worldview, foreshadowing the
current globalisation of visual satire via the Internet. Moreover, works
such as *Ukiyo-e Caricatures directed by Noriko Brandl and Sepp Linhart*
(Brill, 2013) or Christophe Marquet’s* Ôtsu-e : Imagerie populaire du Japon*
by (Picquier, 2015) do not hesitate to describe Japanese prints with
satirical and humorous content, produced from the second half of the 19th
century, as "caricatures". The immediacy of these images, their
effectiveness and often polemical nature, which sometimes drew the wrath of
power upon their authors and made them prefer anonymity, do not pale in
comparison with their later counterparts.

This issue of *Extrême-Orient, Extrême-Occident* follows in the wake of
such works and aims to shed light on the existence and modalities of visual
satire in East Asia, both past and present, through the comic, parodic,
ironic and critical dimensions of the image. Our aim is to explore the
borrowings, reappropriations, adaptations, and circulations within an East
/ West transcultural space, but also through an intra-Asian approach. The
specificity of the media and the modes of diffusion will also be
considered, as well as the heterogeneity of the contexts and different
visual cultures of the countries in question in their historical in depth.

We are therefore expecting contributions covering various periods and
different countries such as China and Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Vietnam,
which may come from disciplines as diverse as art history, media theory,
social, political and cultural history, psychoanalysis, and literature.

Proposals for papers, in English or French, should be addressed to the two
chief editors, matthias.hayek at ephe.psl.eu and
pierre-emmanuel.roux at u-paris.fr, as well as to
