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 ...


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 ...

How To Get An American Boyfriend: Japanese Women And Westernization, Nicole M. Puckett 2015 Georgia Southern University

How To Get An American Boyfriend: Japanese Women And Westernization, Nicole M. Puckett

University Honors Program Theses

Since the end of World War II, and even more so since the 1980’s, Japanese women have been gaining more and more independence through jobs and international experience. Part of this move towards liberation can be seen in how brand-focused many Japanese girls and women are and the overt manner in which they try to express themselves in typically western ways. This report will focus on Japanese women and how they try to make themselves appear western as a means of defining their individual identities and how they balance that with their usual prescribed roles as traditionally Japanese mothers ...
