Takeshi Kaikō – 開高健(1930−1989), Cecilia S. Seigle Ph.D.

Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations

It has been 27 years (as of 2015) since the death of Takeshi Kaikō, Japanese writer, novelist, essayist, journalist, and a recipient of many literary prizes. This essay comprises of correspondence between Kaikō and myself, which lasted for 14 years since I first wrote to him in 1972 from necessity to ask some questions on his novel “Darkness in Summer” (夏の闇), which I was translating. We became good friends. Many years later, his long-time editor and publisher commented that Kaikō evidently told me things that he never told his long-time editors. I told him that was because I was not ...

The Impact Of The European Union’S Policy Towards China’S Intellectual Property Regime, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath 2015 College of Europe

The Impact Of The European Union’S Policy Towards China’S Intellectual Property Regime, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

This article evaluates the effectiveness of two major European Union technical assistance programmes, IPR2 and IP Key, in shaping China’s regional intellectual property (IP) enforcement. It argues that although technical assistance programmes have been effective in influencing the national IP legal framework, it has been less successful in assisting regional policy enforcement. This is primarily the result of divergent economic priorities at the sub-national level. The article further assesses potential priorities for future IP technical assistance.


Thought Reform During The Chinese Cultural Revolution: The Case Of Deng Kesheng, Mirjam Eggli, Reza Hasmath 2015 University of Oxford

Thought Reform During The Chinese Cultural Revolution: The Case Of Deng Kesheng, Mirjam Eggli, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

This article looks at a Maoist era thought-reform model through the experiential prism of Deng Kesheng’s ‘Report Back’ – a series of confessional writings crafted from 1966 to 1969. The article analyzes the language utilized by Deng with reference to three main facets: (1) the trust bestowed upon different political agencies; (2) an evolving Mao cult; and, (3) the distinction between the political and intellectual Self.


What Drives Contemporary Eu-China Strategic Engagement?, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath 2015 College of Europe

What Drives Contemporary Eu-China Strategic Engagement?, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath, Natalia Wyzycka, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

This study examines the primary determinants of the European Union’s strategic engagement with China. Three behavioural theories – institutional, social, and agency/stakeholder – and three case studies – looking at the EU’s arms embargo on China, EU-China engagement in Africa, and the EU’s longstanding dispute on granting China market economy status – are utilized to account for the EU’s foreign policy practice with China. The study’s findings can reduce the misunderstandings and uncertainties embedded in EU-China interactions, by demystifying the factors and variables that drive their relationship.

Remembering Vietnam War Veterans: Interpreting History Through New Orleans Monuments And Memorials, Catherine Bourg Haws

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

ABSTRACT

The political motivations behind the design, formation and establishment of the edifices are also probed. The paper considers the Vietnam War monuments and memorials erected by Americans and Vietnam expatriates in New Orleans, Louisiana, and examines their illustrative and educational usefulness.

Ramping Down Chinese Commercial Cyber Espionage, Emilio Iasiello 2015 Private Sector

Ramping Down Chinese Commercial Cyber Espionage, Emilio Iasiello

Emilio Iasiello

While detractors believe that commercial cyber espionage hasn’t really stopped, recent Chinese efforts show a government trying to get a handle on its large spying apparatus that could include hired and independent contractors acting autonomously in addition to its other resources. While complete cessation may never occur, significant timely reduction demonstrates Beijing’s willingness to work with the United States as a partner and not a pariah, and provides a foundation from which the two governments can move forward on other cyber security areas where incongruity persists.

Cityscape, Urban Nobodies And War: Modern Transformation Of Nianhua In Suzhou-Shanghai, Hua Huang 2015 The University of Western Ontario

Cityscape, Urban Nobodies And War: Modern Transformation Of Nianhua In Suzhou-Shanghai, Hua Huang

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation explores the continuities and ruptures of the nianhua practice and representations in the Suzhou-Shanghai region during the mid-18th – 19th century. It explores a city-based nianhua tradition in Jiangnan’s urban centers that supplements current scholarship, which focuses geographically on northern print centers, economically on village-based production, and thematically on religious, auspicious and moral subjects of universal value. Challenging current scholarship that treats nianhua as a folk tradition rigidly adhering to an established pictorial vocabulary and conventional symbols of religious and moral significance, this study demonstrates the adaptive and innovative energies within the nianhua industry. Taking nianhua as a ...

Chinese Internet Literature: Preserving Born-Digital Literary Content And Fighting Web Piracy, C. David Hickey 2015 University of Florida

Chinese Internet Literature: Preserving Born-Digital Literary Content And Fighting Web Piracy, C. David Hickey

Journal of East Asian Libraries

This paper undertakes to define Chinese internet literature (CIL) and discuss the unique circumstances that make the subject of CIL content preservation so problematic. Copyright infringement and text corruption, in which the text is changed or adapted without author’s permission, are major problems in China. Text corruption mostly results from censorship or web piracy. A recently-developed type of anti-piracy scheme called “literary works fingerprinting” can protect the content of the works themselves, guarding them against plagiarism. If as many of the original CIL documents as possible are consistently archived and digitally fingerprinted, then the born-digital works that remain online ...
