Chinese Male Homosexual Identity Construction On Yaba(丫吧), Brendan Ryan

Honors Theses

Authoring The Tadaki Family Photo Album, Sancia M. Nash 2019 Bard College

Authoring The Tadaki Family Photo Album, Sancia M. Nash

Senior Projects Spring 2019

“The challenge is thus : How can one recreate without recirculating domination”

—Trinh T. Minh-ha, When the Moon Waxes Red

When I visit my family in Tokyo, I stay in a small tatami prayer room adorned with pictures of my ancestors. They hang where the wall meets the ceiling, hovering above my futon bed; my eyes are closed but I feel their gaze through my lids. Two years ago during one of my visits, my grandmother brought out a family photo album assembled by her mother, Kau. It depicts her family’s life abroad during her husband’s two-year term at ...


Treatment And Evolution Of Digital Rights: A Comparative Analysis Of China, Russia, The United States, And Germany, Karina Barbesino 2019 Rollins College

Treatment And Evolution Of Digital Rights: A Comparative Analysis Of China, Russia, The United States, And Germany, Karina Barbesino

Honors Program Theses

The internet and digital technologies allow for the recognition, advocation, and protection of human rights. People around the world have access to faster and exponentially more information than ever before. The possibilities for education, politics, healthcare, work, and equality have greatly expanded. The internet provides new opportunities for the progression of humanity, but not without a cost. The transformative power of the internet to both empower and infringe on human rights has not been lost on states. As a relatively new domain, the policies in cyberspace remain in their trial periods. Each state is implementing, redacting, and implementing again policies ...


Rice Bunnies In China's #Metoo: Discussion Of A Feminist Movement Under Censorship, Tyler Caple 2019 University of Mississippi

Rice Bunnies In China's #Metoo: Discussion Of A Feminist Movement Under Censorship, Tyler Caple

Honors Theses

This paper aims to assess the reception of the currently developing #MeToo movement in China from the perspective of Chinese internet users, feminists, and the state government as well as how censorship affects the way in which these individuals express their opinions on gendered sexual violence in Chinese society. By using a qualitative content analysis to comb through Chinese social media posts, Chinese state- sponsored news articles, and Western news articles, findings suggest that Chinese netizens are engaging with societal concerns over #MeToo and sexual assault, but do not define their grievances as being within a movement presumably to avoid ...


Swimmies, Thomas Drew Ramsey 2019 University of Mississippi

Swimmies, Thomas Drew Ramsey

Honors Theses

This thesis is based off the children’s book Swimmy, by Leo Lionni. The story develops into a series of paintings serving as a grand illustration of the narrative. Swimmy is about a fish whose companions were all eaten by a big tuna fish and now journeys the sea alone. Eventually, Swimmy finds more fish like its own, and together they swim as one large fish-form, scaring away the big tuna fish. The moral of this story is of perseverance and cooperation, showing how working together can overcome insurmountable obstacles in the face of danger. This group of paintings follows ...


The Prc And Its Anti-Drug War: The Opium Suppression Campaign Of The Early 1950'S, Queen Marcela Pierre 2019 University of Mississippi

The Prc And Its Anti-Drug War: The Opium Suppression Campaign Of The Early 1950'S, Queen Marcela Pierre

Honors Theses

For centuries, China sought to suppress opium consumption within its borders. Following the Chinese Communist Party’s rise to power, the 1950’s drug suppression campaign initiated new attempts to bring about the end of opium’s presence within Chinese society. What led to this campaign’s success is its utilization of different strategies within each region of focus. The combination of strategies used allowed the CCP to eradicate all forms of the opium market in both urban and rural areas where the campaign was active. This thesis examines the methods used during the campaign and how these methods resulted ...


What Explains The Rise Of Majority-Minority Tensions And Conflict In Xinjiang?, Reza Hasmath 2018 University of Alberta

What Explains The Rise Of Majority-Minority Tensions And Conflict In Xinjiang?, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

In the past few years there has been a rise of inter-ethnic violence in China. While ethno-cultural repression and ineffective state policies are correctly attributed as key culprits behind this reality, this article suggests that socio-economic factors play a fundamental contributory role as well. Using the Xinjiang case, the article maps ethnic tensions and violence as a manifestation and expression of a growing and heighten ethno-cultural consciousness stemming from ethnic minorities’ low socio-economic status due, in part, to internal Han migration, and a labour market process – involving agency and structure – that has shaped a split and segmented labour market.


Replacing Liberal Confucianism With Progressive Confucianism, Stephen C. Angle 2018 Wesleyan University

Replacing Liberal Confucianism With Progressive Confucianism, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

The core thesis of this essay is that “progressive Confucianism” is a clear and viable category, a label for many though not all contemporary Confucians, which succeeds in capturing what is useful about so-called “liberal” Confucianism without suffering from various problems to which I show “liberal Confucianism” falls prey. The essay begins with examples of progressive Confucians being labeled as “liberal” in ways that are misleading. I next turn to the use of “liberal” by influential twentieth-century New Confucians and then look at some contemporary theorists who are often labeled “liberal Confucians.” Overall, for reasons having to do both with ...


Revisiting 'Seventeen–Year Literature' (1949-1966) In China From A Neocolonial Perspective, Tian Zhang 2018 Central China Normal University

Revisiting 'Seventeen–Year Literature' (1949-1966) In China From A Neocolonial Perspective, Tian Zhang

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Revisiting Seventeen–Year Literature' (1949-1966) in China from a Neo­colonial Perspective" Tian Zhang surveys the "Seventeen-Year Literature" (1949-1966) from a neocolo­nial perspective. It reviews the internal and external factors of anxiety faced by Chinese during the period of seventeen years since the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949. The sev­enteen years witnessed a stress on and flourishing of the proletarian socialist literature of the people, by the people and for the people. The seventeen-year literature, on its way to smashing the old system, represents the trend of Chinese literature of ...


Asian America And Empathy: Understanding The Chinese American Experience Through The Art Of Flo Oy Wong, Brienne Wong 2018 The University of San Francisco

Asian America And Empathy: Understanding The Chinese American Experience Through The Art Of Flo Oy Wong, Brienne Wong

Master's Projects and Capstones

This capstone examines how the work of Chinese American artist Flo Oy Wong could be an impetus for dialogue for creating empathy for the Asian American experience. The capstone briefly discusses Chinese American history as the Chinese are one of the earliest immigrant groups to the United States and Asian American art history which demonstrates the role of art for Asian Americans. It also describes the importance of empathy in society and how some museums today are trying to apply empathy to serve their communities. Within this framework, I discuss artist Flo Oy Wong whose ability to tell stories about ...

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

作爲現代學術的中國古代文史研究,是從民國時候的羅王之學開始的。現代文史之學的開拓和進展,一直是跟出土文獻的發現緊密結合在一起的。胡適、顧頡剛、傅斯年、陳寅恪,民國時候的諸多大師,都非常强調新材料的發現和使用。中央研究院建立歷史語言研究所,也是以殷墟的發掘和研究爲支柱的,從此纔有了中國現代的考古學。20 世紀下半葉以來,新的發現層出不窮,極大地豐富了我們對秦漢以前的早期中國社會的認識,這是非常令人振奮的。由於出土文獻内容的豐富性和重要性,它就像一個巨大的漩渦,把各個研究領域的優秀學者吸引過來,形成了一股浩蕩的沿流(drift),奔流成河。

這是一個學科重組的時代,很多傳統學科的邊界都已經模糊,面臨着與其它學科之間的交叉滲透。研究者相互之間的合作和交流顯得越來越迫切。出土文獻涉及古代社會的各個方面,它本身就是一個學科開放的研究對象,尤其需要不同領域的學者之間的切磋和協作。本輯的十二篇論文,雖然只是這條大河中激起的幾朵浪花,但是它們各有自己的姿態,各有自己的衝擊力,從不同的側面,突顯了出土文獻研究的特點和現狀。


説甲骨文的「豕凶十」和「奚戌」字, Qingyu DU 2018 中華書局

説甲骨文的「豕凶十」和「奚戌」字, Qingyu Du

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

甲骨文中的「豕凶十」和「奚戌」字都比較常見,但它們的字形該如何分析,學界尚無統一意見。本文通過相關字形的分析對比,並結合辭例及文獻進行考察,認爲「豕凶十」爲「冡」字初文,「奚戌」爲「髡」字初文。


新見《壽「四每」尊》銘文所見「卜馬」字試釋, Pui Ling TANG 2018 香港大學中文學院

新見《壽「四每」尊》銘文所見「卜馬」字試釋, Pui Ling Tang

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

香港翰海秋季拍賣會公佈新見《壽「四每」尊》乙器,年代屬於西周早期至中期之間。銘文記有“睗(錫)「卜馬」馬卅匹”一語,當中,「卜馬」字从“卜”从“馬”,乃金文首見,拍賣圖録讀爲“駙”。本文結合傳世文獻所見“馼”、“駇”二字的討論,提出尊銘「卜馬」字當讀爲“駁”,“睗(錫)「卜馬」馬卅匹”意指賞賜雜色馬三十匹。此外,本文復通過先秦用馬制度中“毛馬而頒之”與“物馬而頒之”的記述,指出《壽「四每」尊》所記賜馬數量較多,或因雜色馬無法用於禮儀活動,故其用途可以理解爲軍旅出征或家居代步。


談談戰國文字中用爲“野”的“冶”字, Ping'an ZHAO 2018 清華大學歷史系

談談戰國文字中用爲“野”的“冶”字, Ping'an Zhao

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

戰國文字中有一個從“土”從“爪”的字,長期以來得不到正確的釋讀。本文比較系統地梳理了該字的研究歷史,分析了該字的相關用例,特别是新出簡帛資料,認爲應釋爲野。從來源上講,很可能是冶的假借改造字。
