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 ...

Situating A Badiouian Anthropocene In Hagiwara's Postnatural Poetry, Dean A. Brink 2014 Tamkang University

Situating A Badiouian Anthropocene In Hagiwara's Postnatural Poetry, Dean A. Brink

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Situating a Badiouian Anthropocene in Hagiwara's Postnatural Poetry" Dean A. Brink discusses the ecological dimension of the poetry of one of the founding voices in modern Japanese poetry, Sakutarō Hagiwara (1886-1942). Brink argues that Hagiwara developed a poetics characterized by engagements with nonhuman organisms and actants to situate the materiality of these actants in ways that diffuse the binary of "language" and "nature" and present a postnatural relationality that Bruno Latour describes. Drawing on the recent work of Alain Badiou, Brink explores materialist alternatives to representationalism—including the Lacanian triangle of the imaginary real and symbolic ...


Ecocriticism And National Image In 舌尖上的中国 (A Bite Of China), Mingwen Xiao 2014 Tsinghua University

Ecocriticism And National Image In 舌尖上的中国 (A Bite Of China), Mingwen Xiao

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Ecocriticism and National Image in 舌尖上的中国 (A Bite of China)" Mingwen Xiao examines the multi-faceted contents of the popular 2012 television series. Instead of exhibiting delicacies made by professional chefs in luxury restaurants, A Bite of China displays local food and dishes made by ordinary people. By focus on every-day food preparation, the show constructs a performance where class, ethnicity, gender, age, and other social markers are blurred and the geographically and ethnically diverse ways of food preparation and consumption appear as a cohesive Chinese culinary identity. Xiao argues that A Bite of China plays a role ...


Manga History As A Manga Character: The Gekiga Movement's Role In Tatsumi Yoshihiro's A Drifting Life, Jon P. Holt 2014 Portland State University

Manga History As A Manga Character: The Gekiga Movement's Role In Tatsumi Yoshihiro's A Drifting Life, Jon P. Holt

World Languages and Literatures Faculty Publications and Presentations

Why is manga history so important in Tatsumi's manga biography? Is A Drifting Life an autobiography, or, is it a history of the Japanese comic books, particularly the "mature-audience" gekiga sub-genre? Both? Neither? How do the narratives of history and self intertwine? How should we read the gekiga (dramatic pictures) in this manga?


Names, Naming, And Nature In The Tale Of Genji, Elissa Kido 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Names, Naming, And Nature In The Tale Of Genji, Elissa Kido

Literary Onomastics Studies

The Tale of Genji, written in the early eleventh century by a Japanese woman in the imperial court, is the undisputed masterpiece of classical Japanese literature. Some critics suggest that Japanese fiction owes its existence to The Tale of Genji since it is the earliest work in the history of Japanese literature to set the literary standards for the narrative (Rimer 200). In terms of world literature, the presence of psychological introspection in such an early work has prompted Western critics to acclaim Genji as the world's first psychological novel (Morris 265), if not indeed "the oldest true novel ...
