  • ‘British values’? ‘Chinese values’? Governing and reimagining nation through values-based education policies in Britain and Hong Kong

    Leung, Alvin (University of CambridgeFaculty of EducationFitzwilliam College, 2019-02-04)
    This dissertation presents research that is broadly concerned with comparative understanding of the concept of citizenship and its relationship to nationhood, most particularly as it relates to contemporary government policies – what Michel Foucault refers to as ‘studies of governmentality’ – in Britain and Hong Kong. A major consideration is the assessment of how modern states seek to imbue citizenship with new meanings by mobilising connections to reimagined ‘national cultures’ and ‘national values’ as a way of expanding power and limiting access to citizenship. Two cases are selected and examined in this research to elucidate the above concern and consideration. The first is Hong Kong, where a compulsory subject Moral and National Education was proposed in 2012 to cultivate students’ positive values and enhance their ‘national qualities’. The second is Britain, where all schools and universities since 2015 must by law carry out the Prevent Duty to assess the risk of students becoming terrorists and beginning in 2014 where all schools must actively promote ‘fundamental British values’. In both contexts, the education policies and their associated discourses claimed to protect ‘our culture’, defend ‘our values’, and promote understanding of ‘our nation’ Curriculum documents, policy documents, and parliamentary reports related to these education policies are collected and critically analysed in a genealogical approach to reveal (a) the expressions of ‘national values’ and citizenship in these policy and associated political texts, (b) how these texts and associated discourses influenced the re-imagination of nations, and (c) how the national perspectives expressed ideologically – especially in relation to the narrowing of borders through policies – recast, mediate or alter conceptions of citizenship. The comparative policy landscape in Britain and Hong Kong is assessed by deploying an interdisciplinary framework that addresses nation, citizenship, borders, and governmentality in a unique way. The study of the cases, in return, demonstrates how this framework can be applied to analysing education policies and assessing the rationalities and effects of these policies.

  • Discourse in Translation

    Taylor & FrancisRoutledge, 2021-01-15
    This book explores the discourse in and of translation within and across cultures and languages. From the macro aspects of translation as an inter- cultural project to actual analysis of textual ingredients that contribute to translation and interpreting as discourse, the ten chapters represent different explorations of ‘global’ theories of discourse and translation. Offering interrogations of theories and practices within different sociocultural environments and traditions (Eastern and Western), Discourse in Translation considers a plethora of domains, including historiography, ethics, technical and legal discourse, subtitling, and the politics of media translation as representation. This is key reading for all those working on translation and discourse within translation studies and linguistics.

    Ahmad Maulidizen (The Graduate School of Antasari State Islamic University of Banjarmasin, 2020-12-01)
    The last few days, the world was shocked by the appearance of a coronavirus outbreak that attacked China's plains. According to CNN Indonesia in February 2020, 42,500 people reported being infected with the coronavirus worldwide, 947 people died from the virus that triggered this respiratory disorder, and 25,000 were treated. This virus is known to originate from Hubei Province, precisely the city of Wuhan. Therefore, an assumption links the phenomenon of the emergence of the coronavirus with the habits of the Wuhan community that likes to consume wild animals, such as bats. So the purpose of writing this article is to find out how to analyze Islam and scholars' ethical consumption about eating bats. This research is library research with a descriptive approach, namely by describing and critically analyzing the coronavirus's causes according to Islamic consumption ethics and the scholars. Data collection methods use documentation, various articles and books. Then analyzed using content analysis, critical analysis and data analysis methods deductively, inductively and comparatively. The results of this research are there are five ethics of Islamic consumption, namely monotheism, balance, responsibility, free will and the prohibition of being royal (isrāf) and must consume ḥalāl animals and provide benefits not bring danger to human life. The scholars disagree in determining the law of consumption of bats, Shāfi’ī and Ḥambalī declare ḥarām, Mālikī declared makrūh and not until ḥarām, but not something that can be consumed, while Ḥanafī disagreed, some declare ḥalāl and some who argue not ḥalāl
  • La transhumance en Chine

    Grillot, Caroline (2021)
    Issue d’une tradition sédentaire, l’apiculture chinoise contemporaine se distingue par la prédominance de la transhumance à des fins commerciales. Continuellement en déplacement à la recherche de miellées rentables, soumis aux règles de l’économie de marché, les apiculteurs exercent leur métier dans des conditions précaires imposant adaptabilité, rapidité et performance, parfois à l’encontre des rythmes et des équilibres naturels. Basé sur une enquête de terrain effectuée en 2017, cet article montre comment les discours, les pratiques et les efforts de coordination des temporalités des apiculteurs sont révélateurs de la façon dont les valeurs et les déséquilibres sous-jacents de la mondialisation imprègnent un métier en affectant les liens des apiculteurs avec les abeilles et l’environnement.
  • Worldliness: how do we live with others? Universality-as-multiplicity

    ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen); Ling, L. H. M. (DEUStuttgart, 2021-03-24)
    The ifa conference "Cultures of We" held on 13 September 2017 in Berlin cut to the core of world politics today. It asked: How can we stay true to the principle of equality, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), when "othering" has resurged in identity and politics validated by a newly-vocal narrative of "us versus them?" Populist movements formalized by Brexit in the United Kingdom in June 2016 and the election of Donald J. Trump to the US presidency five months later march in lock-step with other racist-nationalist regimes in the Philippines, Turkey, Austria, and so on. Many pockets of Scandinavia, previously models of liberal tolerance, also exhibit similar sympathies. Renewed commitment to the UDHR will not suffice, I’m afraid. Its insistence on singularity to convey universality sinks the proposition.

  • New Developments in Christianity in China

    Lim, Francis Khek Gee (MDPI - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2021-02-11)
    The phenomenal expansion of Christianity in China in recent years has attracted much scholarly and public attention. As the country continues to deepen its linkages with the rest of the world, Chinese Christian networks are spreading both within and outside the country. These networks link and crisscross at multiple scales and localities in China while strengthening interactions with overseas Chinese Christians and global Christianity. Many Christian groups throughout the country are harnessing the tremendous potential of new media, such as the internet and mobile apps, to share religious messages, participate in rituals, access information, create online communities, and to evangelize. Chinese Christians have also begun exerting their influence outside China through activities such proselytism, charity work, and development projects. This volume presents cutting edge research by scholars working in the field of Christianity in China, providing valuable insights into how Chinese Christianity is evolving and how it is shaping the country and beyond.
  • Combined Impact of Lifestyle-Related Factors on Total and Cause-Specific Mortality among Chinese Women: Prospective Cohort Study

    Nechuta, Sarah; Shu, Xiao-Ou; Li, Hong-Lan; Yang, Gong; Xiang, Yong-Bing; Cai, Hui; Chow, Wong-Ho; Ji, Butian; Zhang, Xianglan; Wen, Wanqing (ScholarWorks@GVSU, 2010-09-01)
    Background: Although cigarette smoking, excessive alcohol drinking, obesity, and several other well-studied unhealthy lifestyle-related factors each have been linked to the risk of multiple chronic diseases and premature death, little is known about the combined impact on mortality outcomes, in particular among Chinese and other non-Western populations. The objective of this study was to quantify the overall impact of lifestyle-related factors beyond that of active cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption on all-cause and cause-specific mortality in Chinese women. Methods and Findings: We used data from the Shanghai Women’s Health Study, an ongoing population-based prospective cohort study in China. Participants included 71,243 women aged 40 to 70 years enrolled during 1996–2000 who never smoked or drank alcohol regularly. A healthy lifestyle score was created on the basis of five lifestyle-related factors shown to be independently associated with mortality outcomes (normal weight, lower waist-hip ratio, daily exercise, never exposed to spouse’s smoking, higher daily fruit and vegetable intake). The score ranged from zero (least healthy) to five (most healthy) points. During an average follow-up of 9 years, 2,860 deaths occurred, including 775 from cardiovascular disease (CVD) and 1,351 from cancer. Adjusted hazard ratios for mortality decreased progressively with an increasing number of healthy lifestyle factors. Compared to women with a score of zero, hazard ratios (95% confidence intervals) for women with four to five factors were 0.57 (0.44–0.74) for total mortality, 0.29 (0.16–0.54) for CVD mortality, and 0.76 (0.54–1.06) for cancer mortality. The inverse association between the healthy lifestyle score and mortality was seen consistently regardless of chronic disease status at baseline. The population attributable risks for not having 4–5 healthy lifestyle factors were 33% for total deaths, 59% for CVD deaths, and 19% for cancer deaths. Conclusions: In this first study, to our knowledge, to quantify the combined impact of lifestyle-related factors on mortality outcomes in Chinese women, a healthier lifestyle pattern—including being of normal weight, lower central adiposity, participation in physical activity, nonexposure to spousal smoking, and higher fruit and vegetable intake—was associated with reductions in total and cause-specific mortality among lifetime nonsmoking and nondrinking women, supporting the importance of overall lifestyle modification in disease prevention.
  • Chapter 6. French and Chinese regulatory approaches to end-of-life and euthanasia

    Wu, Tao; Chassang, Gauthier (2020)
    Pour les patients en situation critique ou terminale, l’approche de la mort est une situation suscitant de nombreuses questions éthiques et juridiques d’importance. Les professionnels de santé et les familles de la personne en fin de vie sont évidemment en première ligne des préoccupations générée par ces situations, tous souhaitant agir dans le meilleur intérêt du patient. Certains Etats ont règlementé les différentes situations rencontrées sur le terrain afin d’offrir aux parties-prenantes des procédures claires et adaptées devant permettre de garantir la dignité humaine en pratique en élaborant les règles d’une éthique de la fin de vie visant à accompagner les professionnels de santé impliqués dans la réalisation de certains actes tout en fixant les limites dans le respect des personnes concernées. Quelles sont les alternatives ? L’euthanasie est-elle tolérable ? Quel rôle pour les professionnels de santé ? Et pour la famille ? Le contenu des règlementations divergent en fonction des pays, des sensibilités culturelles et des traditions éthiques et juridiques en présence, comme la volonté politique de réguler ce sujet. L’expérience règlementaire de pays comme la France et la Chine peut être utile à d’autres pays et servir de base à une appropriation du sujet. A cette fin, nous analysons le cadre actuel Français et la situation en Chine de façon à identifier les éléments principaux des réflexions, les éventuels points communs, les règles adoptées et les questions en suspens dans une approche comparée.

  • The Relationship Between Fear of COVID-19 and Online Aggressive Behavior: A Moderated Mediation Model

    Baojuan Ye; Yadi Zeng; Hohjin Im; Mingfan Liu; Xinqiang Wang; Qiang Yang (Frontiers Media S.A., 2021-02-01)
    Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, fear has run rampant across the globe. To curb the spread of the virus, several governments have taken measures to drastically transition businesses, work, and schooling to virtual settings. While such transitions are warranted and well-intended, these measures may come with unforeseen consequences. Namely, one’s fear of COVID-19 may more readily manifest as aggressive behaviors in an otherwise incognito virtual social ecology. In the current research, a moderated mediation model examined the mechanisms underlying the relation between fear of COVID-19 and overt and relational aggressive online behavior among Chinese college students. Utilizing a large sample of Chinese college students (N = 2,799), results indicated that moral disengagement mediated the effect of fear of COVID-19 on college students’ overt and relational online aggressive behavior. A positive family cohesion buffered the effect of moral disengagement on relational aggressive behavior, but only for females. The findings, theoretical contributions, and practical implications of the present paper are also discussed.
