Taiwanese Traditional Musical Idioms Meet Western Music Composition: An Analytical And Pedagogical Approach To Solo Piano Works By Tyzen Hsiao, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
Taiwanese Traditional Musical Idioms Meet Western Music Composition: An Analytical And Pedagogical Approach To Solo Piano Works By Tyzen Hsiao, Yi-Chuan Tsai
Since Western classical music was introduced in Taiwan, many contemporary Taiwanese composers have been experimenting with different musical forms and techniques. The members of the Third Generation of Taiwanese Composers began to lead the modernization of Taiwanese music after 1960. They proposed the establishment of a specifically Taiwanese musical tradition, one which would reach out to Taiwanese audiences through the incorporation of familiar folk songs and musical idioms, while incorporating Western compositional techniques and forms.
Tyzen Hsiao (蕭泰然) (1938-2015) was one of the most influential Taiwanese composers. His music is a blend of Taiwanese traditional musical idioms and Western music ...
Measuring Quality Of Life For Shanghai’S Floating Population Employed In Urban Renewal Sites, 2017 Western Michigan University
Measuring Quality Of Life For Shanghai’S Floating Population Employed In Urban Renewal Sites, Jacob A. Watkins, Gregory Veeck
Research and Creative Activities Poster Day
Chinese internal migrants continue to struggle to obtain social and economic equity in some of China’s largest cities. Shanghai, China’s largest city, houses one of the largest floating populations in the country. As city officials and the CPC continue to spend on urban renewal sites in the city proper, new opportunities may be emerging for migrant workers. These sites contain hundreds on new commercial and service based businesses that could potentially provide stable employment for rural-to-urban migrants in Shanghai and influence migrant quality of life as well as provide the means for migrants to remain in the city ...
Letters To Mei Lanfang, 2017 Western Kentucky University
Letters To Mei Lanfang, Alexandra Dare Norman
Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects
As a male actor of female Dan characters, Mei Lanfang (1894-1961) is known throughout the world as the most representative performer of Chinese opera – particularly for his performance of Concubine Yu in the Peking opera Farewell My Concubine. A feminist analysis of his work in this opera reveals a series of assumptions about the definition of “Woman” in both theatre and life. This project is solo performance piece formatted in a series of open letters to Mei Lanfang, interspersed with personal stories investigating what it truly means to be a Woman – as an actor, a Christian, a feminist, a traveler ...

In this lesson, students will examine the relationship between gender roles and Confucian principles in pre-modern China by considering the extent to which the Mulan legend is compatible with the Confucian concept of filial piety. Students will read and discuss texts on filial piety by Confucian scholars, as well as three different works of Chinese literature based on the Mulan legend from three distinct time periods.

17-02 The Paradox Of Power: Understanding Fiscal Capacity In Imperial China And Absolutist Regimes, Debin Ma, Jared Rubin
ESI Working Papers
Tax extraction in Qing China was low relative to Western Europe. It is not obvious why: China was much more absolutist and had stronger rights over property and people. Why did the Chinese not convert their absolute power into revenue? We propose a model, supported by historical evidence, which suggests that i) the center could not ask its tax collecting agents to levy high taxes because it would incentivize agents to overtax the peasantry; ii) the center could not pay agents high wages in return for high taxes because the center had no mechanism to commit to refrain from confiscating ...

Chinese Communication Studies: Three Paths Converging, Wenshan Jia
Communication Faculty Articles and Research
This contribution presents the possibilities for anthropological and neo-Marxist media within the hugely expanding sector of Chinese communication studies. China has sourced mostly from the American positivist tradition but is increasingly taking on board European critical thinking but it also needs to absorb some of the depth and diversity of indigenous scholarship existing in Chinese.
Jia, Lu, and Heisey (2002) presented an influential meta-analysis of every example of communication studies in China at that time. The book chapter which talks about the rise of the discipline and scholarship of Chinese communication as an academic discipline (Jia et al., 2014) summarises ...
粵語正音運動, 2017 Lingnan University
粵語正音運動, Lok Man Mak
Cultural Studies@Lingnan 文化研究@嶺南
筆者本科為雙語學（bilingual studies），接受的是現代語言學觀念，相信語言及其規則會隨時間而改變，因而對以古證今、極具傳統主義（traditionalism）色彩的「正音運動」一直敬而遠之，但在抗拒的同時，又感其他論調未能切中要害。縱觀各派立場，皆未跳出語言學界多年來有關「約定俗成／習非勝是」之辯。筆者所關懷的問題，在於「約定俗成」和「習非成是」背後同時預設了一套傳統，兩者同樣描述了實踐對傳統的背離，卻是兩種截然相反的知識論立場。語言學習的其中一大難題，就是每每牽涉到傳統與實踐之拉扯，這種張力在中文系／中文學習中特別明顯。對於學習和傳統，可見博藍尼（Michael Polanyi, 1891-1976）的著作《科學、信念與社會》（Science, Faith, and Society, 1946）、《個人知識》（Personal Knowledge, 1958）和《默會維度》（The Tacit Dimension, 1966）。
他認為「我們所認知的比我們可描述的更多」，他指出知識有兩類，除了是「默會」的知識（tacit knowledge），就是植根於「默會」的知識（knowledge rooted in tacit）。換言之，人所認知的必然包含默會的、不可言說的部分。以此為基礎，他批判當代批判哲學對傳統的割離，他相信所有知識是互相連結的（all knowledge is dependent），因此，他重新體認傳統的價值，指出學習不可避免要相信（belief）權威（authority）。何文匯無疑是語音研究的權威，他建基於宋代《廣韻》的粵音方案亦顯然有重新確立傳統的用意。然而，是否因為作為普通人的我們無法如王亭之、潘國森般提出反證，就得全盤接受？以下將借博藍尼的知識論，梳理粵語正音運動與語言學習之間的問題。

Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This dissertation focuses on the adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes character and stories into the television shows Sherlock and Elementary on air today. The project will consider three central questions: 1) Why is this Victorian detective hero still popular in the twenty-first century and what has remained constant and still resonates with modern audiences? 2) Both television shows transport Holmes in time by setting their narratives in the present day; therefore, what has been changed in this process of adaptation? 3) How do these changes represent shifts in our cultural thinking about important aspects of humanistic inquiry ...
