• 1607年南昌教案:罪名、理論及背景 [The Nanchang Anti-Christian Case of 1607: Its Charges, Theories and Background ]

      HUANG, Yun (Institute of Sino-Christian Studies; Institute for the Study of Christian Culture, Renmin University of China, 2011-11)
      Around 1607, twenty seven licentiates from Nanchang accused Matteo Ricci, Giovanni Soeiro, Emanuele Dias and some other Jesuits of rebellion and teaching dangerous doctrines, arguing that the priests ought to be executed or expelled from China. This was the first organized anti-Christian case of the Ming Dynasty. Although the plaintiffs lost the case, they published a pamphlet to justify their action, which was sent in 1616 to Shen Que (沈榷), becoming one of the mobilizing factors in the Nanking persecution. As the case took place in the city where Matteo Ricci was once warmly received, where Wang Yangming’s teachings were flourishing, and a city famous for its Buddhist and Daoist shrines, it deserves further study.

      Pfister, Lauren (Institute of Sino-Christian Studies; Institute for the Study of Christian Culture, Renmin University of China, 2011-11)
      This study seeks to juxtapose 19th and 20th century Protestant Christian missionary- scholars and modern Chinese revolutionaries by describing their different forms of counter-cultural transformative efforts. On the basis of the studies of the patterns in European revolutionary events elaborated by Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, comparisons and contrasts are made between the counter-cultural efforts and influences of these two different kinds of counter- cultural transformative agents. Among the more constructive aspects of the Protestant missionaries’ work are the efforts of three key missionary-scholars, James Legge, Séraphin Couvreur and Richard Wilhelm. They rendered classical Chinese scriptures into foreign languages and established a firm basis for modern European Sinology and North American Chinese Studies. Their cross-cultural interests reflected different kinds of cross-cultural transformation, suggesting how a plurality of religious perspectives can produce different forms of cultural transformation. In contrast, the complexities of the modern Chinese revolution followed patterns found also in European military revolutions, and so indicate how cultural transformation can not only be constructive of new forms of life, but also become destructive of past forms of life through periods of extremism. These various different perspectives on cultural transformation move us toward a new account of the dynamic nature of culture, an account deeply indebted to insights form Rosenstock-Huessy. On this basis a final theoretical suggestion is presented, that indicates why the extremist stage of the Chinese Cultural Revolution may have led to the emergence of religious openness among Chinese citizens in the latter part of the 20th century.

      余, 华林 (首都师范大学, 2007)
      20世纪二、三十年代,随着男女平等观念的广泛传播,传统的“贤妻良母”观念也开始吸收一些具有时代特色的内容,有人将妇女“贤妻良母”的传统角色定位,与国家、社会的发展相联系,并在男女平等的基础上重新定义“贤妻良母”的标准和内涵,在一种新式的情境下强调妇女的“母职”和“妻职”。尽管“新贤妻良母主义”仍然充满了封建守旧色彩,但是它对于传统家庭分工模式的重新思考无疑具有积极的意义。 There was a new coordination for the traditional concept of an ‘exemplary wife and mother’ as the value of gender equality spread in around 1920s-1930s.

    • "Being Chinese" in Madagascar

      Zhang, Mingyuan (Scholarship@Western, 2018-10-04)
      This PhD dissertation explores how the meaning of “being Chinese” is culturally and socially constructed in northern Madagascar, focusing on identity-shaping encounters between Mandarin-speaking Chinese and Malagasy people in three particular contexts: 1) a sugar plantation managed by a Chinese stated-owned corporation; 2) networks of Chinese and Malagasy private businessmen who enable the movement of cheap Chinese commodities from Guangzhou, China to northern Madagascar; and 3) the classrooms of the Confucius Institute - a worldwide educational project sponsored by the Chinese government aiming to promote Chinese language and culture. The dissertation provides an ethnographic account of Chinese-Malagasy encounters by discussing a number of prominent themes: the perceived homogeneity and actual heterogeneity of Chinese people in Madagascar, the influence of particular constructions of gender on intimate relationships between Chinese and Malagasy people, Chinese-Malagasy encounters mediated by global commodity chains and the selective representation of Chinese culture in the classes and events sponsored by the Confucius Institute. By juxtaposing the three contexts, this dissertation strives to bridge the growing literature on China-Africa encounters with broader discussions of Africa in the postcolonial world that has long been dominated by the dual protagonists of the “West” and Africa. The main argument is that all three contexts of Chinese-Malagasy encounters demonstrate the features of discontinuity, unpredictability, exclusiveness and disconnectedness entailed in Africa’s participation in the contemporary world order. Although Chinese-led projects bring certain benefits to Malagasy communities, Chinese stakeholders in Africa are reinforcing and perpetuating the power hierarchy of a postcolonial world that systematically disadvantages underdeveloped countries such as Madagascar. The frictions in Chinese-Malagasy encounters are caused by different and unequal ways in which Chinese and Malagasy people are aspiring for better lives.

    • A 'third culture' in economics? An essay on Smith, Confucius and the rise of China

      Herrmann-Pillath, Carsten (Frankfurt School of Finance & Management Frankfurt, M., 2011)
      China's rise drives a growing impact of China on economics. So far, this mainly works via the force of example, but there is also an emerging role of Chinese thinking in economics. This paper raises the question how far Chinese perspectives can affect certain foundational principles in economics, such as the assumptions on individualism and self-interest allegedly originating in Adam Smith. I embark on sketching a 'third culture' in economics, employing a notion from cross-cultural communication theory, which starts out from the observation that the Chinese model was already influential during the European enlightenment, especially on physiocracy, suggesting a particular conceptualization of the relation between good government and a liberal market economy. I relate this observation with the current revisionist view on China's economic history which has revealed the strong role of markets in the context of informal institutions, and thereby explains the strong performance of the Chinese economy in pre-industrial times. I sketch the cultural legacy of this pattern for traditional Chinese conceptions of social interaction and behavior, which are still strong in rural society until today. These different strands of argument are woven together in a comparison between Confucian thinking and Adam Smith, especially with regard to the 'Theory of Moral Sentiments', which ends up in identifying a number of conceptual family resemblances between the two. I conclude with sketching a 'third culture' in economics in which moral aspects of economic action loom large, as well as contextualized thinking in economic policies.
