    • Beskrifning öfver en äfventyrlig resa: En analys av den historiska Johan Brelins olika identiteter och hans världsbild

      Lindstam, Tim (Lunds universitet/Historia, 2021)
      “Description of an adventurous journey – An analysis of the historical Johan Brelin’s different identities and his world view”. In the 1750s, the young Johan Brelin set sail on a Swedish East India Company ship heading towards Canton, modern day Guangzhou, China. During his travels, he wrote down a travelogue containing his observations of the world. While en route home towards Sweden, he accidentally got left behind on the island of Ascension. He was saved by a French ship, and after an “adventurous journey” managed to make his way back to Europe and Sweden. The purpose of this thesis is twofold. The first purpose seeks to explore the different historical identities of Johan Brelin as he is presented in previous research literature and contemporary source materials. The second purpose is focused on Brelin’s travelogue, and how he interpreted the world and created knowledge for a Swedish audience. To research the historical Johan Brelin and his identities, a methodological and theoretical framework primarily based on global microhistorical identity formation process by Dr John-Paul A. Ghobrial is employed. To analyze Brelin’s travelogue, Dr. Ghobrials microhistorical theories are employed together with Dr. Anne M. Thell’s research on travelogues along with associate professor Carina Lidström’s research on travelogue genre contracts. The results of the research shows that while Johan Brelin had a career as an inventor later on in his life, his career path and identity formation process was long and never clear, and it was partly a result of the people around him. The analysis of his travelogue shows that Brelin very much was a product of his time, his previous knowledge, network, aspirations and dreams. His travelogue also shows signs of being a part of the identity formation process, as it offers a stage where Brelin could present himself in a specific light, especially for others to see. It exemplifies the complexity of the travelogue genre as reality and fiction clash for the limited space. The research also shows the clear connection between the historical Johan Brelin’s network and interests, which shine through the travelogue. This connection would have been lost if the analysis of the historical Brelin had been ignored. The thesis thus concludes by stating the importance of analysing both the personal circumstances of the author in addition to the writing itself.
    • The “Brilliant Teaching”: Iranian Christians in Tang China and Their Identity

      Max Deeg (CERES / KHK Bochum, 2020-11-01)
      The last three decades or so have seen an increasing interest in the early history of Christianity in China, particularly in Christian communities in the Tang period. One of the pertinent questions asked—particularly by theologians—is whether the “Brilliant Teaching” (Jingjiao), as the religion called itself in Chinese, had a substantial number of Chinese converts, i.e. whether it was a proselytizing religion or rather an Iranian diaspora religion. While recent documents and new interpretations of existing sources has made it probable that we are indeed dealing with an “expat” religious community, the question of the cultural and religious identity of this community has not really been addressed: they were using Syriac as their liturgical and communal language, but were Persian, Sogdian and maybe even Bactrian in terms of origin and culture. This paper will summarize the data we can get from Chinese sources and discuss them in the light of religious and cultural identity.

    • Intercultural aspects of economic globalization

      Engels, Benno (Deutsches Uebersee-Institut, Hamburg (Germany)) (ed.) (2001)
      'Die immer intensivere Einbindung ehemals 'peripherer' Gesellschaften und Oekonomien in die Internationalisierungsbemuehungen der Unternehmen und in die weltweiten Netzwerke der Wirtschaft stellt hohe Anforderungen an den Realitaetsbezug und an den prognostischen Wert von Aussagen der Entwicklungsforschung. Dies gilt auch fuer deren klassisches Thema: das Spannungsverhaeltnis von Kultur und Entwicklung. Die Unternehmen muessen wissen, wie es um die zukuenftige Entwicklung projektierter Standorte, Absatz- und Bezugsmaerkte bestellt ist und wie sie sich auf zu erwartende Probleme einstellen koennen. Umgekehrt hat sich durch die Globalisierung der Wirtschaft aber auch der kulturelle Anpassungsdruck in den Partnerlaendern erheblich verstaerkt. Der vorliegende Band versammelt neuere Beitraege zu diesem Thema. Bei der Auswahl wurde Wert darauf gelegt, sowohl die gesamtwirtschaftliche Perspektive als auch Probleme aus der einzelwirtschaftlichen Sichtweise zu beruecksichtigen.' (Autorenreferat).

    • LITERARY PORTRAYALS OF RELIGIOUS AWAKENING THROUGH SUFFERING AND LOSS - BUDDHIST, DAOIST, AND CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVES

      Canning, Robert (ScholarWorks@UMass Amherst, 2020-12-18)
      The focus of this study is on portrayals of religious awakening in four short works of literature: a Chinese play, two Chinese short stories, and an American short story. In all of these works, the protagonists attain religious awakening, but only do so because they experience suffering and loss. The experience of suffering and loss in these works helps to bring about the protagonists’ willingness to leave the worldly life. This is because the experience of suffering and loss clears the minds of the protagonists and helps them to realize the bitter nature of worldly existence. In addition, these works portray worldly concepts from the perspective of a mystical, transcendent order of reality. Things that appear normal from a worldly perspective are abnormal from the mystical perspective, and vice versa. Thus, the wise may appear foolish, the sane crazy, and the successful materially destitute, to name a few examples. In these works, religious heroism (a characteristic of the protagonists) also appears unheroic because of this distorted perspective. Religious heroism may appear cowardly, for example, and religious success may appear to be a failure or a tragedy. These literary portrayals of religious awakening through suffering and loss may thus help to shed light on religious concepts common to Buddhism, Taoism and Christianity, and also on the differences between the worldly and mystical perspectives.

    • Wpływ obcych kultur muzycznych na tradycyjną muzykę koreańską

      Stunio, Małgorzata
      Tradycyjna muzyka koreańska posiada zarówno elementy rodzime, jak i te powstałe pod wpływem obcych kultur muzycznych. Czynniki zewnętrzne przyczyniły się do powstania nowych gatunków, form, instrumentów i systemów notacji muzycznej. Praca, złożona z trzech rozdziałów, przedstawia wpływ obcych kultur muzycznych na tradycyjną muzykę koreańską. Ukazuje zmiany, jakie następowały w historii muzyki Korei na przestrzeni wieków, a następnie skupia się na opisie konkretnych elementów powstałych na skutek obcych wpływów. Rys historyczny tradycyjnej muzyki koreańskiej wraz z jej charakterystyką został przedstawiony w rozdziale pierwszym. Drugi natomiast zawiera opisy form, gatunków, instrumentów, a także systemów notacji muzycznej, które pod wpływem obcych kultur wykształciły się na Półwyspie Koreańskim do końca XIX wieku. W tym czasie dominowały wpływy kultur muzycznych Chin oraz Azji Centralnej. Innym czynnikiem oddziałującym na muzykę tego okresu był buddyzm przedstawiony Korei w IV wieku przez Chiny. Rozdział trzeci ukazuje wpływ muzyki zachodniej, która została sprowadzona do Korei i rozpowszechniona przez chrześcijańskich misjonarzy. Elementy zachodniej kultury muzycznej zaczęły przenikać do tradycyjnej muzyki koreańskiej wraz z końcem XIX wieku. Proces wzajemnego oddziaływania komponentów tych dwóch odrębnych światów muzycznych trwa do dziś. Obecnie młodzi artyści z Korei Południowej coraz częściej czerpią inspirację z rodzimych brzmień, w wyniku czego elementy tradycyjnej muzyki koreańskiej można znaleźć nawet w utworach znanych artystów muzyki K-pop.
    • Wpływ myśli chrześcijańskiej na twórczość Lu Xuna na wybranych przykładach

      Ciesielski, Jakub
      Niniejsza praca przedstawia przykłady wpływu myśli chrześcijańskiej na twórczość Lu Xuna. Pierwszy rozdział przybliża sylwetkę pisarza oraz porusza zagadnienie wyboru nie-konfucjańskiej perspektywy, która posłużyła pisarzowi do krytyki społeczeństwa chińskiego. Drugi , poświęcony w dużej mierze „Prawdziwej historii A Q”, opisuje dzieła, które wywarły wpływ na konstrukcję głównego bohatera tego opowiadania i ukazują go z dwu różnych perspektyw. Trzeci rozdział przedstawia bezpośrednie ślady Ewangelii i wpływ postaci Chrystusa na bohaterów z opowiadań Lu Xuna.
