“The Spatiality of Emotion in Early Modern China: From Dreamscapes to Theatricality” by Ling Hon Lam

Møller-Olsen, Astrid LU (2018) In Asian Review of Books - ARB
Abstract
Ling Hon Lam encourages us to think of emotions in terms of space; when we sympathize with a character in a play or feel something for another person, that emotion takes place, for it moves us outside ourselves. In Chinese this relation between space and emotion is described by the term qingjing; a scenery of feeling or in Ling’s translation an “emotion-realm”.
