The Legacy Of Crossdressing In Tanci: A Histoire Of Heroic Women And Men, Li Guo Dec 2011

The Legacy Of Crossdressing In Tanci: A Histoire Of Heroic Women And Men, Li Guo

Languages, Philosophy, and Communication Studies Faculty Publications

This essay studies a tanci work, A Histoire of Heroic Women and Men (1905), as a case which reflects the intersecting themes of crossdressing, gender representation and the literary form of tanci. Written tanci, appropriated and redeveloped by educated women to tell stories of female crossdressers, scholars, and military leaders, offers a meaningful intervention in the dominant social and cultural discourses of womanhood in late imperial China. In the fictional realm, women’s acts of crossdressing transcend the Confucian ideological prescriptions of feminine identity, displaying their heroic efforts to pursue autonomy in a patriarchal culture. This essay will analyze how ...

Making History Anew: Feminine Melodrama In Eileen Chang's Love In A Fallen City, Li Guo Dec 2011

Making History Anew: Feminine Melodrama In Eileen Chang's Love In A Fallen City, Li Guo

Languages, Philosophy, and Communication Studies Faculty Publications

This essay will explore the narrative mode of feminine melodrama in Love in a Fallen City, a novella by the Shanghainese writer Eileen Chang (1920–1995). Chang has gained international fame for her depiction of Chinese women in the tumultuous transitional period prior to the modern era, especially traditional women figures that are in stark contrast with the New Woman ideal portrayed by her contemporary writers. Born in Shanghai, Chang was a descendant of an eminent late imperial official and received western education in Hong Kong under the influence of her open-minded mother. A literary sensation at the age of ...

Being Blacklisted By China, And What Can Be Learned From It, James A. Milward Aug 2011

Being Blacklisted By China, And What Can Be Learned From It, James A. Milward

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

Bloomberg, and more recently The Washington Post, have run stories about the visa problems of scholars who contributed to Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland, a volume edited by Frederick Starr and published by M.E. Sharpe in 2004. The Bloomberg piece was exhaustively reported; the reporters who wrote it, Dan Golden and Oliver Staley, conducted interviews with Chinese as well as western participants in the episode, and all in all did a good job with a complicated story. Inevitably, however, the Bloomberg piece creates some misconceptions, and these are as likely to be reinforced as cleared up in news reports ...


From Marriage Revolution To Revolutionary Marriage: Marriage Practice Of The Chinese Communist Party In Modern Era, 1910s-1950s, Wei Xu Aug 2011

From Marriage Revolution To Revolutionary Marriage: Marriage Practice Of The Chinese Communist Party In Modern Era, 1910s-1950s, Wei Xu

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation focuses on exploring the myth of ―revolutionary marriage‖, a popular and lasting marriage tradition of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The concept of ―revolutionary marriage‖ came out of a marriage revolution initiated by the May Fourth radicals in order to challenge the traditional marriage system. This term was then borrowed by the early Chinese Communists who used it to describe their socialist marriage ideal. However, regarding the CCP‘s marriage policy, there was always a gap between the progressive ideals and the conservative realities. In every piece of propaganda the CCP swore to completely overthrow the feudal arranged ...

China’S Relations With South Asia: From Threat Avoidance To Development Opportunity, Jonathan Ping Jul 2011

China’S Relations With South Asia: From Threat Avoidance To Development Opportunity, Jonathan Ping

Jonathan H. Ping

This paper offers a historical overview of PR China’s relations with South Asia (from 1949 to the present). The South Asian region covering Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Burma/Myanmar has been attracting growing international attention in recent years. PR China has become one of the main external actors to involve itself in the region. In this respect, the paper addresses the main elements of PR China’s current relations with the South Asian states and offers several case studies of Beijing’s relations with the region. The investigation also outlines the likely trajectories of ...

Uncoiling The Modern Sino-American Relationship, Amanda Mcatee Apr 2011

Uncoiling The Modern Sino-American Relationship, Amanda Mcatee

Psi Sigma Siren

For this particular paper I seek to qualify the true nature of the Sino-American relationship as it has developed over the last quarter of the twentieth century. To more fully appreciate the complex relationship that evolved between such seemingly antithetical nations, I will critically review both James Mann‘s About Face: A History of America’s Curious Relationship with China, From Nixon to Clinton and Margaret MacMillan‘s Nixon and Mao: The Week that Changed the World. This paper will specifically focus on evaluating the similarities and inconsistencies between Mann‘s and MacMillan‘s theses, elucidate the structural differences between ...

尼西黑陶: A Study Of Tibetan Black Pottery, Catherine Elliott Apr 2011

尼西黑陶: A Study Of Tibetan Black Pottery, Catherine Elliott

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

This paper addresses the contemporary production of traditional crafts through a close study of Tibetan black pottery. By considering the traditional process, materials, and techniques of Nixi pottery alongside contemporary changes in markets, resource availability, and production methods, this paper suggests possible directions for the development of traditional crafts. Ultimately, the paper challenges traditional distinctions between “arts” and “crafts,” suggesting the inherent mobility of crafts as their makers respond to changes in the social, political, and economic contexts of production.

Literacy And Cultural Assimilation In Rural China: A Report From The Interior, Amanda C.R. Clark Jan 2011

Literacy And Cultural Assimilation In Rural China: A Report From The Interior, Amanda C.R. Clark

Library Faculty Scholarship

The American Library Association has long been concerned with the promotion of literacy, particularly as it pertains to the equity and global universality of access to information. When libraries focus on the accessibility of information, literacy is understandably an initial step in the process. This essay focuses on challenges to literacy in rural China, and how technology may be improving access to information for many of the inland population.


Chinese Reverse Mergers, Accounting Regimes, And The Rule Of Law In China, Benjamin A. Templin Jan 2011

Chinese Reverse Mergers, Accounting Regimes, And The Rule Of Law In China, Benjamin A. Templin

Benjamin A. Templin

In 2010, federal regulators and politicians became increasingly concerned over the accounting practices of Chinese companies that trade on U.S. stock exchanges. In particular, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) targeted companies that went public through a process called the reverse merger. The instances of fraud became so widespread, regulators and commentators coined the term Chinese Reverse Merger (“CRM”) in order to describe a sector where investors assume the risk of accounting irregularities. Although CRMs must comply with international accounting standards, a weak rule of law in China has resulted in poor implementation and enforcement of its accounting regime ...


The Sounds Of Zhèngmíng: Setting Names Straight In Early Chinese Texts, Jane Geaney Jan 2011

The Sounds Of Zhèngmíng: Setting Names Straight In Early Chinese Texts, Jane Geaney

Religious Studies Faculty Publications

In early Chinese texts, straightness often indicates correctness, hence many things are said to be zhèng .1 But among them, only zhèngmíng 正名 emerged as a rhetorical slogan promising the production of order and elimination of human confusion and fakeness.2 In scholarship on Chinese ethics, the slogan is usually understood as working toward these goals by making behavior accord with names or by making “names” (norms or social roles) accord with behavior. By contrast, on the assumption that uses of the term “míng” (name/title/fame) involved what something is called or what is heard ...

香港文學的現代主義 : 六、七〇年代歐洲電影與香港文學的關係, Pak Shing Tse Jan 2011

香港文學的現代主義 : 六、七〇年代歐洲電影與香港文學的關係, Pak Shing Tse

Theses & Dissertations

大量的史實證明,香港五、六○年代銳意介紹西方現代主義的文藝雜誌與 副刊跨越了不同的藝術媒介,為香港現代文學奠下了重要的基礎;而這個基礎 有兩個重要的特質:一它是一個連續的累積過程,二它具有跨越媒介的特色。 由《文藝新潮》(1956-1959)以降,到《新思潮》(1959)、《好望角》(1963) 等提倡現代文藝的雜誌,它們所累積的現代主義文化根基及對不同藝術媒介的 包容吸收,到了六○年代的《中國學生周報》仍然秉承這份精神。本文把西方傳入的現代主義思潮看成是一個在香港連續發展的整體。

現代主義雖然是西方思潮,但在香港的特殊背景之中,反而把其消化成香港獨特的文學風格,令香港文學更加本土化;而對於六○年代在香港成長的作者,歐洲電影更是一個吸收現代主義思潮的重要途徑。本文以現代主義及歐洲電影兩條線索在香港交匯的事實構成一個視角,一方面考察香港本土意識的形成,另一方面探討電影與文學在美學及文化上的互動關係。

在這個視角下,六○年代《中國學生周報‧電影版》所討論的歐洲電影成為本文重要的文獻,而本文會抽取當中較有代表性的電影作品,並以之為章節, 看其對香港文學的影響。討論的作品以長篇作品《剪紙》(1977)及《我城》 (1979)為主,旁及《養龍人師門》(2002)、《象是笨蛋》(1969)以至也斯及西西的影評,以及他們回應某些歐洲電影的文學作品。與過往的評論不同, 本文把這兩部作品放在歐洲電影與現代主義文學交錯的脈絡中,重新發掘其背後的影響來源,討論的電影包括阿倫‧雷奈(Alain Resnais,1922-)的《去 年在馬倫巴》(Last Year at Marienbad, 1961)、路易士‧布紐爾(Luis Buñuel, 1900-1983)的《模糊的情慾對象》(That Obscure Object of Desire,1977)、 安東尼奧尼(Michelangelo Antonioni)的《春光乍洩》(Blow-Up,1966)、路 易 ...


崑南及其小說研究(1955-2009), Wai Chung Chan Jan 2011

崑南及其小說研究(1955-2009), Wai Chung Chan

Theses & Dissertations

崑南(岑崑南 (1935-) 是香港一個頗富傳奇性的作家。50-60 年代,他是「現代主義」文學的一名猛將。60 年代中後期,崑南卻放棄了自己的「文藝」理想, 創辦了以流行音樂、影視、星座、消費為主的《香港青年周報》(1967)、《新周 報》(1972)等流行刊物,約至77 年中後期才因經濟問題而告終。此後崑南一直徘徊在文藝創作和通俗創作之間,掙扎不已。期間他對文學的信念和作家的自我定位日漸低落。88 年末,崑南更一度放棄創作,投入自己星座研究及個人的世界之中約7年。直至95 年中,崑南在朋友的鼓勵和支持下回歸文字創作,此後他對文學的熱情和創作意慾亦日漸見濃,不時在不同的報刊、雜誌、文藝刊物發表小說、詩歌、散文等不同作品,創辦多份文藝雜誌並擔個編輯。

本論文主要有三章,其中第一章共分成六個部份,分別討論不同時期崑南的文學活動與小說創作。全文梳理了近半個世紀之間,崑南在香港文學環境中, 在「文藝」和「通俗」兩種創作方向的來回掙扎與矛盾的心路歷程。本論文的第二章,主要疏理崑南各個時期的小說創作,其中就各小說中的情態意緒、敍事手法、語言運用等方面變化等方面來崑南「性與女體」書寫的特色。第三章主要以較宏觀的角度討論崑南的文學態度,並重點討論報紙副刊作為通俗載體 的限制和可能,藉以反思其與香港的文化環境和作家心態之間的關係。
