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

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 Dec 2018

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 ...

Three Essays On The Impacts Of China’S Monetary Policy, Shen Chen Dec 2018

Three Essays On The Impacts Of China’S Monetary Policy, Shen Chen

Dissertations

China has experienced high speed of economic growth, trying to catch up with the developed countries. Monetary policy has played a more and more important role in China. This dissertation studies the impacts of China's monetary policy on China's housing market, stock market, and China's economic growth.

The first essay examines macroeconomic determinants of China's housing price by constructing a VAR model. Granger Causality tests, impulse response functions and variance decompositions are used to analyze the impacts of macroeconomic factors on the housing price. By using the monthly data from 2005 to 2015, the results show ...


Design And Perception Of An Approach To Improving Chinese As A Foreign Language Learners’ Self-Regulated Learning Strategies, Shenglan Zhang Nov 2018

Design And Perception Of An Approach To Improving Chinese As A Foreign Language Learners’ Self-Regulated Learning Strategies, Shenglan Zhang

World Languages and Cultures Conference Papers, Posters and Proceedings

Self-regulated learning (SRL) is a social-cognitive construct in the realm of self-regulation that describes the ways in which individuals actively and constructively regulate their own congitive processes in an educational setting. SRL conceptualizes effective learning as a process of cognitive and motivational evaluation where a learner completes academic tasks (Heikkilä & Lonka, 2006; Pintrich, 2000; Zimmerman, 1990; 2008). Different models of SRL developed over the years (Boekaerts & Niemivirta, 2000; Borkowski, 1996; Pintrich, 2000; Winne & Hadwin, 1998; Zimmerman, 2000), but all models assume at least three phases: a preparatory or forethought phase, an actual performance or task completion phase, and an evaluation and adaptation phase. In the preparatory ...


Speaking Their Language: Developing A Bilingual Libguide For Chinese Students., Nathan Elwood, Maryalice Wade Nov 2018

Speaking Their Language: Developing A Bilingual Libguide For Chinese Students., Nathan Elwood, Maryalice Wade

Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings

This article documents the development of a bilingual English/Mandarin library guide for the Chinese student population of Fort Hays State University. Growing international student populations across the country mean that many university libraries need to customize services for unique student groups. At Forsyth Library of Fort Hays State University we serve over 3600 students from China. We sought to develop further services for this student group. Please note that throughout this paper, when referring to “Chinese language,” we are specifically referencing Standard Mandarin, which is predominant among our Chinese students.


從《論語》看孔子與《易傳》之關係, Hung Kan Chan Nov 2018

從《論語》看孔子與《易傳》之關係, Hung Kan Chan

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

歷來言《易傳》作者,或以爲出孔子之手,或以爲非孔子所作,莫衷一是。本文在前賢研究基礎上,從《論語》入手,找出書中孔子言論與傳世《易傳》内容相似之處,共得17 條,所言道理,包括朋友講習、改過遷善、節用愛民、慎言節食、敬義立德、寡慾致剛、不貳己過、順言以悦、非禮勿履、尊卑有序、止息争訟、赦過宥罪、思不出位、君子固窮、裒多益寡、修美文德、不言而行。以上諸點,《論語》與《易傳》立論,互爲表裏。據此,知孔子之於《易傳》,雖無撰述之實,或有闡述之功。本文證明《論語》與《象傳》及《彖傳》具密切關係,此對孔子闡述《易傳》之説,或可提供足資參考之佐證。


《史記·淮陰侯列傳》與《春秋》書法 : 以比事見義爲例, Kao Ping Chang Nov 2018

《史記·淮陰侯列傳》與《春秋》書法 : 以比事見義爲例, Kao Ping Chang

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

司馬遷私淑孔子,《史記》典範《春秋》。司馬遷著成《史記》,猶孔子作《春秋》,“於定、哀之際,則微”,《司馬相如列傳》所謂“《春秋》推見至隱”。所以出以微辭隱義者,觸忌犯諱故也。今以《史記·淮陰侯列傳》爲例,揭示司馬遷發揮史德之真實,運用《春秋》書法,顯揚韓信之忠貞不二,爲勇略震主、功蓋天下之韓信平反冤獄。司馬遷運用《春秋》比事屬辭之書法有三:一、據事直書,具文見義,即“盡而不汙”之書法,是實録、信史之基調。清梁玉繩《史記志疑》極辯信無反狀十一事,史公依漢廷獄案將誣詞叙入傳中,比事屬辭,而其冤自見。二、詳略重輕,筆削見義:筆削之義,則體現於詳略、重輕、異同、有無諸書法。漢中之對、安邑之襲、背水之戰、濰水之陣,爲勇略震主、功蓋天下作見證,故較詳較重。武涉與蒯通之遊説,前較略、較輕,後偏詳、偏重。重輕、詳略,皆有義可求。韓信之回應武涉與蒯通,屬辭雖有微殊,而曰豈可鄉利背義,雖死不易,是其所同。三、微婉顯晦,互見示義:“太史公曰”之微辭隱義,當前後相絜,彼此相形。如信與陳豨,聯手謀反;韓信夙願,止在封侯;韓信功勳,可比周、召、太公之徒;天下已集,乃謀畔逆等等:皆所謂忌諱書寫,最見《春秋》書法。


中古時代的《漢書》注釋傳統, Jun Chen Nov 2018

中古時代的《漢書》注釋傳統, Jun Chen

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

中古時代《漢書》地位頗高,堪與“五經”相提並論。《漢書》經典地位的確立,除了其文本自身所具有的經典特質以外,傳授和注釋的作用也非常重要。東漢中期是《漢書》學的發軔期,班固之妹班昭與馬續續補《漢書》,教授《漢書》於馬融,並爲班固《幽通賦》作注,可謂《漢書》學第一人。從東漢末年的服虔《漢書音訓》、應劭《漢書音義》到西晉時期的晉灼《漢書集注》、臣瓚《漢書集解音義》,再到唐代初年的顔師古注,《漢書》注釋經歷了由“音義”體到“集注”體、由《漢書》學南北分流到《漢書》顔注集其大成的發展過程。


日本僧人《世説新語》注考論 : 江户學問僧之一側面, Bowei Zhang Nov 2018

日本僧人《世説新語》注考論 : 江户學問僧之一側面, Bowei Zhang

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

明代王世貞删改劉義慶《世説新語》和何良俊《語林》而成《世説新語補》,此書在日本江户時代甚爲流行,並且出現了大量的注釋本。在這一注釋群體中,有一批僧人特别引人注目。本文在全面把握相關史料的基礎上,勾勒出江户時期僧人《世説》注的整體面貌,揭示了僧人《世説》注的貢獻和特點,對其學術淵源作了更爲準確的釐清。希望透過這一研究,提請學術界對江户學問僧之成就與貢獻的注意,並再次呼籲將東亞漢傳佛教的文獻當做一個整體來處理,逐步打破以國别爲單位的佛教文獻、思想、信仰的研究。


陶淵明的文體選擇及其文學史“位置”, Te Chen Nov 2018

陶淵明的文體選擇及其文學史“位置”, Te Chen

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

陶淵明的文學史地位並不“一帆風順”,他在當時和稍後並不曾被普遍推重,趙宋以降則聲譽日隆。陶淵明的文學史命運,和他的文體選擇息息相關。作爲一個晉宋之際的文人,陶淵明留存的辭賦很少,且皆爲模擬之作,只能展現其文章才能。但陶詩恰與陶賦形成一鮮明對比,陶淵明經營了一個廣闊的“詩世界”,含攝生平、交遊、思想諸方面。縱覽魏晉文學史,陶淵明是第一位單獨憑藉詩歌就可奠定文學史崇高地位的“詩人”。詩賦之外,陶淵明的文章也旁涉了唐宋方有的“散文”境界。這一獨特的文體選擇,決定了陶淵明的文學史“位置”。


蘇軾前身故事的真相與改寫, Gang Zhu, Huiqing Zhao Nov 2018

蘇軾前身故事的真相與改寫, Gang Zhu, Huiqing Zhao

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

北宋禪僧惠洪最早記録了蘇軾前身是雲門宗禪僧五祖師戒的故事。他不僅構建了這個故事,也一手記録了五祖師戒形象的所有元素。惠洪所爲可能與其祖師黄龍慧南叛出雲門宗這一事件相關,他通過建構蘇軾前身故事及五祖師戒形象,來維護黄龍慧南的聲名,表明其並非背叛雲門宗,而是真正傳承雲門法脈。後來蘇軾前身故事被世俗社會引入戲曲小説,並將其與紅蓮故事拼合,展現出與士大夫話語不一樣的面貌,成爲禪宗在世俗社會的傳法手段。五祖師戒在小説戲曲中被訛變爲五戒禪師,這個新形象成爲流傳最廣的蘇軾前身樣態。


“三七之厄”與兩漢之際經學思想之關係 : 以路温舒、谷永、王莽爲中心, Shaohua Sun Nov 2018

“三七之厄”與兩漢之際經學思想之關係 : 以路温舒、谷永、王莽爲中心, Shaohua Sun

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

從“三七之厄”推算思想看,路温舒提出的“漢厄三七之間”,主要涉及天文與曆數;谷永在路温舒基礎上,又增加了《周易》思想;王莽的“三七之厄”,主要與《周易》、讖緯、五行有關。從三人“三七之厄”思想的變化及其與經學之關係看,路温舒以董仲舒《公羊春秋》説災異,是西漢初年流行做法;谷永説災異,較爲深入地援引各種經學文字,並且在西漢通行經文文字基礎上,開始引用古文經文字;王莽的“三七之厄”説,除了繼續以古文經學説災異,還採納了齊人甘忠可的讖緯學説。劉秀時期提出的“四七之際火爲主”,仍然沿襲的是王莽“三七之厄”的推算方式。二者皆爲王莽代漢、劉秀代莽的輿論工具。


國圖藏清陳澧《學思録》稿本初探, Chao-Ying Guo, Yu-Cheng Wang Nov 2018

國圖藏清陳澧《學思録》稿本初探, Chao-Ying Guo, Yu-Cheng Wang

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

國家圖書館藏陳澧《學思録》稿本由原北平圖書館而來,是高隱芩所藏陳澧稿本中的部分文稿,該稿本包含有陳澧論陶淵明、清朝學者、《周易》、《論語》、朱熹等總計五部分内容。學界一直對高氏所藏此部分文稿的下落不甚明了,所以國圖藏陳澧稿本《學思録》的價值不言自喻。


遞藏·題跋·複製:蘇軾《洞庭春色賦》、《中山松醪賦》書跡, Lo-Fen I Nov 2018

遞藏·題跋·複製:蘇軾《洞庭春色賦》、《中山松醪賦》書跡, Lo-Fen I

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

蘇軾《洞庭春色賦》、《中山松醪賦》合卷書於北宋哲宗紹聖元年(1094),白麻紙,全幅縱28.3釐米,横306.3釐米,加上後人的題跋,總共全長450.3釐米,是篇幅最長的蘇軾書跡,現藏吉林省博物院。本文分析《洞庭春色賦》和《中山松醪賦》的書寫與複製情形,整理歷代庋藏流轉脈絡,以及九位題跋者的十三則題跋。研究發現:蘇軾多次書寫此二賦,尤其是寫《中山松醪賦》予友人,彌補個人作品出版受限制的困境。後世的石刻和法帖促進此二賦的傳布。乾隆皇帝至少兩次臨摹《中山松醪賦》,四度題寫《洞庭春色賦》、《中山松醪賦》合卷,其中兩次是在蘇軾寫《中山松醪賦》的河北定州,頗具深意。


落葉哀蟬曲:珍妃之死·香草美人·家國之喻, Shengqing Wu Nov 2018

落葉哀蟬曲:珍妃之死·香草美人·家國之喻, Shengqing Wu

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

庚子之變是近代中國創傷性經驗的歷史關捩點,也引發了悲情書寫的機制。本文討論世紀之初一群在京文人的詩詞寫作,特别圍繞兩個相關的個案:對珍妃之死的回應,以及王鵬運、朱祖謀與劉福姚等篝燈酬唱而完成的兩部詞集《庚子秋詞》與《春蟄吟》。各種幽微曲折的心思,託喻性的整體風格,鑲嵌繁複的典故,共同成就了那一時期的詞學風貌。集體的唱酬進一步劃分或强化了知識群體,爲有共同文化信念的文人提供表達的機緣、情感慰藉的場域。在這類高度風格化的書寫中,女性的符號成爲其中最活躍的修辭要素。本文探討創傷、隱喻、女性身體與家國想像這些交相糾結的命題,以及托喻作爲一種古老的“詩用”行爲對於晚清士大夫階層的意義。


《金石萃編》續補考, Cheng-Jie Zhao Nov 2018

《金石萃編》續補考, Cheng-Jie Zhao

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

王昶的《金石萃編》將目録、集釋與按語匯爲一編,成爲清代金石學上的劃時代的著作,後人仿效其體例,續補著作多達二十餘部。《金石萃編》與其續補著作共同構建了清代金石學的壹個學術傳統,這種學術傳統是以匯集前人考證題跋爲中心,辨析源流、考索史實,對後代金石學著作的編纂起到了典範作用。考察《金石萃編》之續補,一方面可以利用金石與文獻互證的方法,辨析《金石萃編》的文字或史實錯誤,另一方面,亦可探究《金石萃編》及其續補著作在清代金石學上的學術意義。


私立嶺南大學蠶絲科發展史論, Chao Jiang, Quan Xia Nov 2018

私立嶺南大學蠶絲科發展史論, Chao Jiang, Quan Xia

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

蠶絲業在廣東近代經濟中具有舉足輕重的地位。20世紀二三十年代,私立嶺南大學蠶絲科根據廣東蠶絲業發展現狀,開展調查研究,展開蠶病治理與預防,改良蠶種培育與育蠶及桑種培育與栽桑技術,重視成果技術推廣,致力於廣東蠶絲業的發展,開展了一系列富有成效的活動。嶺南大學蠶絲科的發展既是美國改良廣東蠶絲的迫切需要的推動,又離不開廣東發展經濟的客觀要求,也是華人致力於嶺南大學“中國化”持續努力的結果;在促進蠶絲技術的改進,提高蠶絲品質的同時,增强了廣東蠶絲的市場競争力;也打破了傳統的蠶絲生産觀念,促進了蠶農對蠶絲應用技術的重視,在一定程度上促進了蠶絲業的發展。

Perception And Prejudice: Sino-Ghanaian Relations Within The Service Sector And The Wavering Perception Of China On The Global Stage, Jodi-Ann (Juexuan) Wang Oct 2018

Perception And Prejudice: Sino-Ghanaian Relations Within The Service Sector And The Wavering Perception Of China On The Global Stage, Jodi-Ann (Juexuan) Wang

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Opinions on the impacts of China in Africa differ from one observer to the next, be it in media, academic, or elsewhere. While most general discourses have been nuanced and coherent, there is nevertheless a prevailing sentiment of unbridled fear and Sinophobia, or anti-Chinese populism. Based on a two-sided study in Ghana, this research uses Chinese-Ghanaian employment relations as a way of entry to analyze and explore cross-cultural understandings, or lack thereof, that leads to conflict. From there, this paper examines the style of politicized media in broadcasting Sino-Ghanaian (Chinese-Ghanaian) engagements and its role in creating the anti-Chinese populism on ...


Coming Soon To A Chinese Theater Near You: Why China Matters Even To Hollywood, James N. Udden Sep 2018

Coming Soon To A Chinese Theater Near You: Why China Matters Even To Hollywood, James N. Udden

Friday Forum

In recent years, China has engaged in infrastructure projects on a scale and scope without historical precedent. Cinema in China is no exception. For roughly a century Hollywood has managed to dominate the world largely through the control of the largest exhibition market in the developed world, meaning the USA and Canada. Just a couple years ago, however, the Chinese exhibition sector surpassed North America as the world’s largest linguistically unified and developed film exhibition market. Find out why screenwriting classes in the USA now include courses on how to write for the Chinese market. Find out why even ...


于省吾《雙劍誃尚書新證》研究, Ka Yee Wong Sep 2018

于省吾《雙劍誃尚書新證》研究, Ka Yee Wong

All Open Access Theses and Dissertations

于省吾(1896-1984),中國著名古文字學家、訓詁學家,著作成果頗豐,其古籍《新證》系列,以古文字及出土器物作為考訂及訓釋的材料,被視為開啟山林之作。當中《尚書新證》是《新證》系列中最早出版的著作,可反映于氏訓詁方法的早期面貌。在乾嘉考據學派的訓詁方法和王國維「二重證據法」的影響下,于氏《尚書新證》對《尚書》今文28篇的字詞、句義多有新見,其訓釋的價值實不容忽視。然而,近人研究于氏《新證》系列,卻沒有以《尚書新證》作研究對象,因此,本文試以《尚書新證》為研究對象,並探討其價值。 論文共分三章。第一章交代《尚書新證》的撰作背景、動機,及其版本、體例。第二章會從《尚書新證》内文及于氏發表的論文,歸納並討論于省吾的《尚書》學觀。第三章為《尚書新證》之内容考述及特色,介紹此書有別於其他《尚書》注釋著作之連類訓釋方法,討論此書運用古文字資料為證及紀錄異文的情況,並分別歸納于氏解釋字義、詞義,以至句義之方法,亦會兼及《尚書新證》的内容特色。最後總結全書,討論《尚書新證》對後世學者的影響,並對此書作出評債。


From The "Other" To The "Master Narrative": The Chinese Journey Of The Frankfurt School, Guohua Zhu, Xiangchun Meng Sep 2018

From The "Other" To The "Master Narrative": The Chinese Journey Of The Frankfurt School, Guohua Zhu, Xiangchun Meng

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In their article, "From the 'Other' to the 'Master Narrative': The Chinese Journey of the Frankfurt School," Guohua Zhu and Xiangchun Meng discuss the Chinese reception of Frankfurt School and the Maoist historical context. Chinese scholars take the narrow view of the Frankfurt School theories as a depoliticized instrument to explain Chinese practice, particularly in the realm of mass culture. Furthermore, the Frankfurt School has encountered the powerful political and ideological legacy of Maoism, which not only dictates instrumentalist view, but also predisposes to a nationalistic attitude that pits Chinese exceptionalism against universalism, including the Frankfurt School and other western ...


Introduction: Rethinking Critical Theory And Maoism, Kang Liu Sep 2018

Introduction: Rethinking Critical Theory And Maoism, Kang Liu

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article, "Rethinking Critical Theory and Maoism," Kang Liu reviews the existing literature in English on the relationship of Critical Theory and Maoism and discusses the need to explore and reconstruct a genealogy of Critical Theory and Maoism within the global context of political, ideological, and intellectual currents and trends. The special issue will focus on three clusters of issues: first, the western invention of Maoism as a universal theory of revolution; second, the reception of Critical Theory in China and its relationship to Maoism; and third, the relevance of Maoism and Critical Theory today. Liu raises the question ...


Maoist Aesthetics In Western Left-Wing Thought, Jun Zeng, Siying Duan Sep 2018

Maoist Aesthetics In Western Left-Wing Thought, Jun Zeng, Siying Duan

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In their article “Maoist Aesthetics in Western Left-wing Thought,” Jun Zeng and Siying Duan discuss a terrain of knowledge called “Maoist aesthetics,” which is the creative misreading of Mao’s “On Contradiction,” the theory and practice of “Cultural Revolution” and other revolutionary literature and arts of Mao’s time by Western Left intellectuals. Scholars and academic communities inspired by Maoism include Bertolt Brecht, Herbert Marcuse, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Louis Pierre Althusser, the Chinese period of Tel Quel, Fredric Jameson, Arif Dirlik, and Contemporary Radical Left intellectuals such as Alain Badiou and Slavoj Zizek. Comparative study of the mutual ...


Traveling Theory: Fredric Jameson’S Interpretations Of The Cultural Revolution And Maoism, Xian Wang Sep 2018

Traveling Theory: Fredric Jameson’S Interpretations Of The Cultural Revolution And Maoism, Xian Wang

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article, "Traveling Theory: Fredric Jameson’s Interpretations of the Cultural Revolution and Maoism," Xian Wang discusses how Fredric Jameson transformed or “transcoded” the Chinese Cultural Revolution into his notion of cultural revolution, regarding it as a radical means to achieve decolonization and national liberation. The Chinese Cultural Revolution therefore became a model for cultural revolution in different parts of the world, and an alternative vision of modernity. Jameson also associates Maoism and the Cultural Revolution with Antonio Gramsci’s concept of subalternity, and considers cultural revolution as an ideological revolution for the oppressed classes. Taking Maoism as a ...


The “Althusser-Mao” Problematic And The Reconstruction Of Historical Materialism: Maoism, China And Althusser On Ideology, Fang Yan Sep 2018

The “Althusser-Mao” Problematic And The Reconstruction Of Historical Materialism: Maoism, China And Althusser On Ideology, Fang Yan

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article “The ‘Althusser-Mao’ Problematic and the Reconstruction of Historical Materialism: Maoism, China and Althusser on Ideology,” Fang Yan analyses the “Althusser-Mao” problematic which was first brought up by Liu Kang, outlining how Mao’s ideas contributed to the formation of Althusser’s theory of ideology. The paper is divided into three parts: first, how Mao influenced Althusser’s propositions of the primacy of relations of production and reciprocal action of the superstructure; secondly, how Mao influenced Althusser’s notions of ideological practice, Ideological State Apparatuses and ideological class struggle; and finally, how Althusser drew on Mao in the ...
