Takadachi : The Last Stand Of Yoshitsune And His Loyal Retainers, Daniel J. Topal 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Takadachi : The Last Stand Of Yoshitsune And His Loyal Retainers, Daniel J. Topal

Asian Languages & Civilizations Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Takadachi, a kôwakamai ballad-drama published in the early Edo Period focuses upon the final episode in the life of Minamoto no Yoshitsune: his last stand and death at Takadachi castle. Although this kôwakamai focuses on an extremely popular figure, there has been little research done on the piece and it remains untranslated. This thesis provides a translation of the opening passages of Takadachi as well as a discussion of the ways in which it builds on the character of Yoshitsune as depicted in previous texts such as the Gikeiki and the Heike monogatari. I argue that Takadachi shows Yoshitsune acting ...


The Contours Of Secularism In South Asian Minority Writing, Roger McNamara 2010 Loyola University Chicago

The Contours Of Secularism In South Asian Minority Writing, Roger Mcnamara

Dissertations

My dissertation explores the intricate relationship between secularism and identity in South Asian minority writing. Though India and Sri Lanka were founded as secular states in the 1940s, they have consistently failed to protect the rights of religious and ethnic minorities since the 1980s. Thus, critics have been debating whether secularism as a political doctrine--one that separates religion from the state to protect minority communities--is still relevant. However, this debate only assumes that secularism protects minorities, while I argue that secularism has actively shaped minority identity and experience. I consider secularism to be a process that facilitated the modernization of ...

Ann Hui’S Films And The Poetics Of Mundane Redemption, Peter Zarrow

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

Seen from above, people are ants. As ants are specks in nature, so people—at least Hong Kongers—are specks in the massive infrastructure of forty- and fifty-storey highrises, the limitless concrete of train and highway networks, and the forbiddingly busy shops. Seen up close, however, face-to-face, they become souls. The camera in the masterpiece directed by Ann Hui, “The Way We Are,” switches between these two perspectives. “The Way We Are” (lit. “Day and Night in Tin Shui Wai” 天水圍的日與夜, 2008) simply shows the quotidian, extremely ordinary events in the lives of a few characters, gradually revealing how they ...

Stories about Google’s announcement that it will no longer censor its Chinese search engine, and that the company is reevaluating its presence in China, have been showing up at a breakneck speed over the past two days. While we anticipate that much more will be written about this development, here are some of the pieces that have caught our attention so far:

When I was approached to help National Geographic with their ongoing exhibit of the Terra Cotta Warriors at their museum in Washington, D.C., I thought to myself: “Really? Me? But I work on Islam in late imperial China! I’m one of those scholars who mistakenly types Qing anytime I write about the Qin simply out of finger muscle memory! What could I possibly know about China’s first emperor, Qin Shihuang?”
