A Comparative Analysis Of The Civilizations Of Fukuzawa Yukichi And Sun Yat-Sen, Matthew Jones 2015 Pepperdine University

A Comparative Analysis Of The Civilizations Of Fukuzawa Yukichi And Sun Yat-Sen, Matthew Jones

Global Tides

This essay will explore the different theories of civilization for two major Asian political philosophers Fukuzawa Yukichi, and Sun Yat-sen. Both men wrote during the late 19th and early 20th century just as their respective countries, Japan and China, were facing immense pressure to subordinate themselves to the West which threatened the collapse of their historical structures of civilization. The two men’s theories reflect the transitory nature of the times by drawing heavily from both Eastern and Western traditions to create a unique blend of the two which would have an immense impact on the modern course ...

Huānyíng Nǐ Lái Dào Bgsu: A Guidebook To Bgsu, Jane Powell

Honors Projects

This project is intended to address the needs of Chinese international students in the U.S, specifically those studying at Bowling Green State University.

In addition, this project includes an accompanying essay in order to better analyze the concepts of the academic research. This ...

Constructing The Yellow Peril: East Asia As The Enemy In American Discourse And Political Rhetoric, Laura K. Witwer 2015 Ursinus College

Constructing The Yellow Peril: East Asia As The Enemy In American Discourse And Political Rhetoric, Laura K. Witwer

East Asian Studies Honors Papers

The notion of the Yellow Peril, the perceived racial threat of Asians or Asian nations overtaking Western Nations and Western culture, is not a new phenomenon, but instead an idea that has existed for many centuries, becoming popular in the nineteenth century. The Yellow Peril has been a potent belief which has influenced not only personal opinions, but has also affected Western foreign policy. The United States, whose ideological foundations were built upon Western ideology, was not immune to concerns of the Yellow Peril. Drawing on the theories of critical constructivism, poststructuralism, and postcolonialism, this study analyzes the manifestation of ...

Imagination And Reality: Landscape And The Folk Culture Of Joseon Dynasty Korea, Matthew Finley 2015 Pepperdine University

Imagination And Reality: Landscape And The Folk Culture Of Joseon Dynasty Korea, Matthew Finley

Undergraduate Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

The Five Peaks Screen of Korea’s Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) is one of the most iconic works of its time. Nevertheless, the remarkable visual impact and cultural significance of the Five Peaks Screen evades systematic scholarly study, partly because of its generic classification as folk art. In this paper, I will resituate the Five Peaks Screen in the artistic tradition of East Asian landscape painting. When considered in the context of literati painting traditions and relevant popular landscapes, it becomes clear that the design of the Five Peaks Screen coheres to traditional aesthetics to emphasize the ability of artwork to ...

《嶺南學報》復刊詞, Zongqi Cai

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

在20世紀學術史上,《嶺南學報》曾經寫下厚重一筆,迄今依然是學界共同的記憶。此刊於1929年創辦,1952年因嶺南大學解散而閉刊,其間登載了陳寅恪、吳宓、楊樹達、王力、容庚等學界泰斗的許多重要文章,成爲他們叱咤風雲,引領20世紀學術潮流的平臺。

進入21世紀之今日,香港嶺南大學中文系復辦《嶺南學報》,以求弘揚嶺大百年學術精神,延續嶺大文史研究之優勢,進而提升本校及本港的國學研究水準。復辦《嶺南學報》,我們雖然不敢奢望恢復昔日的輝煌,但將竭盡全力保證學術水準,力爭做到無愧於先輩。面對如此艱巨的任務,我們誠惶誠恐,做好了長期艱苦奮鬥的思想準備。

《嶺南學報》小史述略 : 兼論陳寅恪與《嶺南學報》, Zhan Huang

嶺南學報 Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies

1888年,美國長老會傳教士在廣州創建格致書院。1903年,書院更名為「嶺南學校」,是為「嶺南」用作校名之始。1927年,學校易名為嶺南大學,鐘榮光先生出任校長。自此,嶺大發展為文理商工農醫兼顧的綜合性學府。四十年代,抗日戰爭及國共內戰致使大批學者避難粵廣,不少人進入嶺大執教。這一歷史機遇,也鑄就了嶺大最為輝煌的一段學史。1952年,全國大專院校進行院系調整,教會大學無法繼續存在,嶺大遂被分割合併至其他數所大學。其中,文理科撥歸中山大學,而原嶺大校址康樂園也成為中山大學的新居。

表徵嶺大學術成果者,乃二十世紀上半葉世所推重的《嶺南學報》。《學報》於1929年12月創刊,1952年6月隨著院系調整而終刊。二十三年間,《學報》共刊行35期。下文即對《學報》歷史做一個回顧。

Shandong University Students' Views On Homosexuality, Joseph Miller 2015 Bowling Green State University

Shandong University Students' Views On Homosexuality, Joseph Miller

Honors Projects

Relatively little research currently exists on the subject of homosexuality and LGBT rights within the present People’s Republic of China. Homosexual behavior itself has only been legal in the country since 1997, and it was only removed from the Chinese Psychiatric Association’s list of disorders in 2001. While a few studies are beginning to examine current Chinese attitudes towards the subject of homosexuality, it is not yet enough to get a rounded view of the subject, and more research must be done in order to provide more accurate data. It is to this purpose that this survey of ...

Approaching Maturity: The Role Of Knowledge And Professionalization In The Development Of Chinese Ngos, Jennifer YJ Hsu, Reza Hasmath 2015 University of Alberta

Approaching Maturity: The Role Of Knowledge And Professionalization In The Development Of Chinese Ngos, Jennifer Yj Hsu, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

This article suggests that Chinese NGOs do not believe they are part of an emerging or established epistemic community, that is, a community of experts. Drawing from fieldwork conducted in four large Chinese cities, Chongqing, Kunming, Nanjing and Shanghai, the study suggests that gathering information and developing a knowledge base is not the dominant tactic NGOs utilize to inform and influence state policy. Rather, establishing direct relations with relevant government authorities is the preferred tactic to influence policy deliberation and action. Having close ties with government authorities will serve to benefit individual NGOs, but is likely to undermine the development ...
