Ph.D. Candidate

Taylor Yoonji Kang is a PhD student in the combined program in Comparative Literature & Early Modern Studies, where she works on the emergence of various languages for “perspective” in the early modern period. Bringing together interventions from post-structural anthropology, history of science, intellectual history, literature, and visual culture, she argues that our understandings of perspective are grounded in mythologies of “the real” deriving from the Renaissance and its various appropriations and articulations in the 19th and 20th centuries. In her dissertation, she hopes to argue for a reconsideration of “multi-perspectivalism” in the global early modern.
