“Who is Not Afraid of Contaminated Pleasure?: Anna May Wong’s Thrilling Tear” at Pitt, March 1.

The University of Pittsburgh Film Studies Department is hosting a talk by Dr. Yiman Wang of the University of California Santa Cruz titled "Who is Not Afraid of Contaminated Pleasure? Anna May Wong’s Thrilling Tear". Not much information exists about the talk, other than it starts at 6:00 pm in 407 Cathedral of Learning (map). Wang has written a good deal about Anna Mae Wong, a pioneering Chinese-American actress who rose to prominence in the 1920s.
