Taiwanese Traditional Musical Idioms Meet Western Music Composition: An Analytical And Pedagogical Approach To Solo Piano Works By Tyzen Hsiao, Yi-Chuan Tsai 2017 University of Southern Mississippi

Taiwanese Traditional Musical Idioms Meet Western Music Composition: An Analytical And Pedagogical Approach To Solo Piano Works By Tyzen Hsiao, Yi-Chuan Tsai

Dissertations

Since Western classical music was introduced in Taiwan, many contemporary Taiwanese composers have been experimenting with different musical forms and techniques. The members of the Third Generation of Taiwanese Composers began to lead the modernization of Taiwanese music after 1960. They proposed the establishment of a specifically Taiwanese musical tradition, one which would reach out to Taiwanese audiences through the incorporation of familiar folk songs and musical idioms, while incorporating Western compositional techniques and forms.

Tyzen Hsiao (蕭泰然) (1938-2015) was one of the most influential Taiwanese composers. His music is a blend of Taiwanese traditional musical idioms and Western music ...


Measuring Quality Of Life For Shanghai’S Floating Population Employed In Urban Renewal Sites, Jacob A. Watkins, Gregory Veeck 2017 Western Michigan University

Measuring Quality Of Life For Shanghai’S Floating Population Employed In Urban Renewal Sites, Jacob A. Watkins, Gregory Veeck

Research and Creative Activities Poster Day

Chinese internal migrants continue to struggle to obtain social and economic equity in some of China’s largest cities. Shanghai, China’s largest city, houses one of the largest floating populations in the country. As city officials and the CPC continue to spend on urban renewal sites in the city proper, new opportunities may be emerging for migrant workers. These sites contain hundreds on new commercial and service based businesses that could potentially provide stable employment for rural-to-urban migrants in Shanghai and influence migrant quality of life as well as provide the means for migrants to remain in the city ...


Letters To Mei Lanfang, Alexandra Dare Norman 2017 Western Kentucky University

Letters To Mei Lanfang, Alexandra Dare Norman

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

As a male actor of female Dan characters, Mei Lanfang (1894-1961) is known throughout the world as the most representative performer of Chinese opera – particularly for his performance of Concubine Yu in the Peking opera Farewell My Concubine.

This project is solo performance piece formatted in a series of open letters to Mei Lanfang, interspersed with personal stories investigating what it truly means to be a Woman – as an actor, a Christian, a feminist, a traveler ...

Yakuza Past, Present And Future: The Changing Face Of Japan's Organized Crime Syndicates, Silke Higgins 2017 San Jose State University

Yakuza Past, Present And Future: The Changing Face Of Japan's Organized Crime Syndicates, Silke Higgins

Silke P. Higgins

While Japanese crime syndicates are deeply entrenched in the history and culture of Japan, much of what is known in the Western world about the Yakuza is primarily the result of stereotyping generated by media-driven sensationalism and lowbudget motion pictures. Judgment on the crime syndicates' continued existence, modes of operation, and relatively high visibility in Japan is oftentimes passed based on socio-cultural perceptions of deviance that differ from those in Japanese culture. Taking the form of a book review essay, this paper aims to re-introduce the reader to Japan's crime syndicates with the goal of replacing stereotypes and myths ...

17-02 The Paradox Of Power: Understanding Fiscal Capacity In Imperial China And Absolutist Regimes, Debin Ma, Jared Rubin 2017 London School of Economics

17-02 The Paradox Of Power: Understanding Fiscal Capacity In Imperial China And Absolutist Regimes, Debin Ma, Jared Rubin

ESI Working Papers

Tax extraction in Qing China was low relative to Western Europe. It is not obvious why: China was much more absolutist and had stronger rights over property and people. Why did the Chinese not convert their absolute power into revenue? We propose a model, supported by historical evidence, which suggests that i) the center could not ask its tax collecting agents to levy high taxes because it would incentivize agents to overtax the peasantry; ii) the center could not pay agents high wages in return for high taxes because the center had no mechanism to commit to refrain from confiscating ...

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。
