前言, Chunhong Wang

Prof. WANG Chunhong

2015年春,嶺南大學召開以“明清文學與文論”爲主題的國際研討會,與會者均屬學界資深專家,他們所發表的論文代表著古典文學研究的前沿態勢,具有較高的學術價值。《嶺南學報》編委會經討論,決定以專輯形式,刊登此次會議成果,以與海内外同道切磋分享。 本輯《嶺南學報》之編輯,大致根據會議之主旨,即“小説、戲曲及文化”以及“明清詩學、詞學及文化”,這樣兩個板塊來安排,既凸顯縱向的歷史脈絡,也呈現横向的域内與域外的聯繫。


水神、溺籍與歷險 : 論《聊齋誌異‧織成》, Yin Ping, Grace LAU 2017 嶺南大學中文系

水神、溺籍與歷險 : 論《聊齋誌異‧織成》, Yin Ping, Grace Lau

Prof. LAU Yin-ping, Grace

《聊齋誌異》三會本卷----《織成》一文,述柳生在洞庭歷險。篇中出現洞庭水神、水將:柳毅、南將軍和毛將軍,鮮見於其他文獻,因而顯得珍貴。有關“溺籍”(溺水而死者)之載亦相當特别,有助了解遇溺及水鬼之謎。至於柳生因洞庭奇遇,娶神婢織成,並獲赠財富,便爲其下第,失意於科舉的欠缺,作出補償。

Chinese Communication Studies: Three Paths Converging, Wenshan Jia 2017 Chapman University

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 ...

Mei Mei, A Daughter's Song: Review, Masako Fukui 2017 University of Wollongong

Mei Mei, A Daughter's Song: Review, Masako Fukui

RadioDoc Review

The most compelling aspect of Mei Mei: A Daughter’s Song is its enduring power as cultural critique. On the surface, the subject matter is the universal conflict between mother and daughter, but this radio docudrama by Taiwanese-American producer Dmae Roberts is in fact an ambitious exploration of the complex meanings of race, hybridity and cultural ‘mixedness’ that outline the contours of identity in multicultural societies such as the US.

As an Asian-American ‘minority’ discourse, this documentary disrupts the dominant ‘white vs other’ understanding of culture by exploring Roberts’ ambivalence about her own biracial identity (her mother is Taiwanese, her ...


The Question Of Remilitarization: Is Japan's Pacifist Nature In Danger Of Reform, Shanisha Coram 2017 Scripps College

The Question Of Remilitarization: Is Japan's Pacifist Nature In Danger Of Reform, Shanisha Coram

Scripps Senior Theses

Though Article 9 has not been revised since it was implemented in 1947, the past two decades have seen an increase in Japanese military capability due to the government’s loose interpretation of Article 9 and its limitations to allow for Japanese involvement in collective security operations internationally. As a result, a number of Japanese political scholars and newspapers have projected the possibility of not only Japanese constitutional revision but also the re-militarization of Japan as well. Interested in finding out whether or not this projection has any likelihood of success in the future, I have posed the following question ...


A Maturing Civil Society In China? The Role Of Knowledge And Professionalization In The Development Of Ngos, Jennifer YJ Hsu, Reza Hasmath 2016 University of Alberta

A Maturing Civil Society In China? The Role Of Knowledge And Professionalization In The Development Of Ngos, Jennifer Yj Hsu, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

This article suggests that Chinese NGO do not have the conviction that they are part of an epistemic community in mainland China. Interviews conducted in four cities, Chongqing, Kunming, Nanjing and Shanghai, suggests that this can be attributed to a lack of set standards and professionalization governing their sector of operation. Further, the study finds that Chinese NGOs do not see their primary role is to produce knowledge within their organizational development life cycle. This may indicate a varying path towards the maturation of the civil society sector in China, whereby Chinese NGOs do not conform to the organizational development ...


Crime And Culture : A Thematic Reading Of Sherlock Holmes And His Adaptations., Britney Broyles 2016 University of Louisville

Crime And Culture : A Thematic Reading Of Sherlock Holmes And His Adaptations., Britney Broyles

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 ...


Rising Assertiveness Versus Peaceful Development: Making Sense Of China’S Ambivalent International Behavior, Lukas K. Danner 2016 Florida International University

Rising Assertiveness Versus Peaceful Development: Making Sense Of China’S Ambivalent International Behavior, Lukas K. Danner

Lukas K. Danner

In the past few years, especially after the 2008 global financial crisis, China has become more assertive, not just in its military posture but also in its diplomatic affairs and economic interactions. Despite this rising assertiveness, China’s grand strategy officially remains that of ‘Peaceful Development.’ In consequence, scholars have disagreed about the trajectory of China’s grand strategy in light of its often ambivalent behavior. To explain this ambivalence, this article will take a closer empirical look at  two important developments regarding China’s international affairs: The softening on China’s preoccupation with territorial integrity and sovereignty has been ...


“Drawing Is Where The Joy Is”: Cultural Anxiety, The Monstrous Fantastic, And The Artist As Mediator In Katsuhito Ishii’S The Taste Of Tea, Elise M. Parsons 2016 Cedarville University

“Drawing Is Where The Joy Is”: Cultural Anxiety, The Monstrous Fantastic, And The Artist As Mediator In Katsuhito Ishii’S The Taste Of Tea, Elise M. Parsons

Channels: Where Disciplines Meet

This article applies George Canguilhem’s notion of monster theory as a method for cultural analysis to the analysis of literature. It argues that monster theory provides one accurate view of Japanese contemporary culture as it is depicted in literature, and that observing the relationship of artists and writers to the monsters they depict can lead to a valid hypothesis about the artist’s view of culture. Using this hypothesis as a theoretical framework, the article then analyzes The Taste of Tea, a contemporary film by Japanese director Katsuhito Ishii, in terms of monster theory. It concludes that monster theory ...
