The Lighter Side Of Khan, Christopher Sheline 2018 American Public University System

The Lighter Side Of Khan, Christopher Sheline

Saber and Scroll

When reflecting on history’s greatest kings, emperors, philosophers, and military leaders, few have reached the immense prestige and influence of Genghis Khan (r. 1206-1227). Through his wisdom, charisma, and military ingenuity, Khan built one of the largest empires the world has ever known. However, along the road to immortality, Mongol methodology took on varying forms including psychological and economic warfare. As a result, scholars from as early as the late medieval period into the modern day have depicted Khan as a barbarian, crude and harsh in his ways. Myths and legends arose from these stereotypes, often heavily diminishing or ...

The Impact Of Immigration On Cold War Modernization Efforts: A Case Study Of South Korea, Shannon Hayes 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

The Impact Of Immigration On Cold War Modernization Efforts: A Case Study Of South Korea, Shannon Hayes

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

This paper explores the intersection of American foreign and domestic policies during the Cold War. The United States sought to foster political and economic alliances in the developing world in the 1950s and 1960s by employing a new foreign policy initiative: modernization theory. Governmental officials and non-state actors carried out these policies in areas of the globe considered the most susceptible to communist influences because of cultural practices and economic realities. However, even while American policymakers sought to modernize political and economic systems, the nation’s own immigration policies may have worked against these efforts. This paper will explore the ...

香港的街道命名經歷過多個階段,採取過不同的方式和機制,形成今日百花齊放的局面。香港開埠早期的街道名稱多以人名命名,而近年則普遍以地區特徵加上吉祥字詞組成,各具特色。在這些街道名稱的背後,往往都有一些值得探索的歷史故事。劉智鵬博士於講座中講解一些香港街道名稱的背景由來,讓大家從另一個角度去認識本地歷史。

Succor In Smoke: A Historical And Comparative Analysis Of Incense And Moxibustion As Similar Agents Of Edification And Self-Cultivation, Hannah E. Matulek

Black & Gold

Since its origins in the Shang Dynasty nearly 3,000 years ago, traditional Chinese medicine has undergone many dramatic shifts and adapted to a wide range of cultural, social, religious and foreign pressures. One of the most notable changes is the attribution of the etiology of disease (as well as general poor health and behaviors) from volatile and dissatisfied external forces to manageable internal forces. This allowed for a flourishing of thought in Chinese medicine, for once granting an individual the power to influence his or her own health. Three religions—Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism—were also introduced to China ...

16_中英禁區, 賽馬會香港歷史學習計劃 2018 Lingnan University

16_中英禁區, 賽馬會香港歷史學習計劃

專題展覽

中英街是香港最具特殊意義的一條街。嚴格而言,中英街並不算一條街,它是港深兩地接壤的禁區中的一處邊界,只是中間沒有鐵絲網或圍牆之類的分界物而已。香港只擁有這條街一半的管轄權,另一半屬於深圳。冷戰時期,中英街是分隔世界兩大政治陣營的主要邊界之一;一邊是社會主義的中國,另一邊則由資本主義的英國管治。不過,中英街的邊界線只有疏落的幾座界石,兩邊分屬中港兩地的居民可以自由往來。中國改革開放之初,中英街是內地居民都期望一到的地方。最熱鬧時,一天就有近十萬人湧到這裏購物。本展覽將帶你走過中英街近百年潮起潮的變遷。

17_淪陷歲月, 賽馬會香港歷史學習計劃

專題展覽

1941年12月至1945年8月,香港在日本軍政府的統治下,經歷了三年零八個月的黑暗歲月。日軍不但以殘酷的手段管治香港,又強迫遣返市民歸鄉,加上糧食嚴重不足,導致不少市民無辜喪命。即使有幸生存的人,他們的生活亦苦不堪言。面對物資短缺、物價飆升,以及日軍的嚴密監管,大部分市民都過著三餐不繼、誠惶誠恐的生活。另一方面,為鞏固在港統治,日軍多方面施行日化政策,除了下令採用日式地名,還透過教育和政治宣傳等手段努力灌輸日本文化及價值觀念。 本展覽將會展示日治期間香港社會的狀況,以及市民的日常生活。

15_四大工業, 賽馬會香港歷史學習計劃

專題展覽

「穿膠花」、「剪線頭」是不少老一輩香港人的集體回憶。1950年代,韓戰禁運、內地移民等因素促使香港工業起飛,使這個轉口港搖身一變成為世界工廠。當中「紡織及製衣業」、「塑膠及玩具業」、「鐘錶業」和「電子業」發展尤為突出,獲得了「四大工業」的美譽。這些港製產品價廉物美,遠銷歐美市場,取得了驕人成績,使「香港製造」品牌蜚聲國際。然而隨著內地在1978年推出改革開放政策,香港工廠相繼北移,四大工業亦逐步轉型。本展覽將介紹四大工業的發展,重溫香港製造業的黃金歲月。

The Eitc’S Fall And The Opium Wars, Charles Barrett 2017 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

The Eitc’S Fall And The Opium Wars, Charles Barrett

Student Works

The East India Trading Company (EITC) was one of the first companies to establish a monopoly over goods traded around the world. The EITC spread goods that were typically only found where they originated, such as tea, spices, and opium.

The Chinese had access to poppy before the EITC began importing it, and when China levied a ban on opium being imported China, the EITC ignored it and continued to profit off China’s opium addiction. The EITC, and Britain, saw the ban, and the actions taken by China to enforce the ban, as an act of war and reacted ...


Strange Women: The Evaluation And Comparison Of Female Characters In Akira Kurosawa's Films, Alice Jiron Jang 2017 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Strange Women: The Evaluation And Comparison Of Female Characters In Akira Kurosawa's Films, Alice Jiron Jang

History

The successes of Akira Kurosawa’s films have shaped and influenced Western views on Japan after World War II. While the male characters in Kurosawa’s films have been analyzed extensively, there is a focus on the subservience of this female characters. With the growing number of independent working women in a seemingly patriarchal society, it is important to study what has caused these women to break free from their traditional roles as housewife and mother. While some of Kurosawa's female characters are designed to be powerful and independent, others are submissive and obedient. The events that occur in ...

Beijing Olympics 2008: The View From Vancouver (Host To Winter 2010 Olympics), David Luesink

David N. Luesink

It is interesting to note the similarities between criticisms of Olympic preparation in Vancouver and Beijing. Although the famously beautiful city of Vancouver is still two years away from hosting the winter Olympics in conjunction with the mountain village of Whistler, we are already running into the standard problems and criticisms familiar to Olympic planners of the past few decades. While air quality and the national human rights record are not likely to be the major issues for Vancouver, other themes show up on a regular basis in the local press, including cost overruns, natural disasters, transportation problems, and the ...

Rare earth elements (REE) contain unique chemical and physical properties such as lanthanum, are found in small concentrations, need extensive precise processes to separate, and are critical components of modern technologies such as laser guidance systems, personal electronics such as IPhones, satellites, and military weapons systems as varied as Virginia-class fast attack submarines, DDG- 51 Aegis destroyers, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, and precision guided munitions. The U.S. has some rare earth resources, but is heavily dependent on access to them from countries as varied as Afghanistan, Bolivia, and China. Losing access to these resources would have significant adverse ...

12_調景嶺的青天白日, 王 國儀

專題講座

今日的西貢以「香港後花園」見稱,位於新界東部的離島地區,環抱山水,景色優美,是各歐美人士和影視紅星聚居之地,亦是各行山愛好者的週末好去處。不過,有誰會想到數十年來西貢經歷了滄海桑田?西貢調景嶺曾經是國民政府遺民的聚居點,依靠港英政府的救濟;而萬宜灣則曾是數個客家聚落的鄉土,村民以耕種和捕魚維生。1970年代起,調景嶺居民的經濟改善,逐漸遷出區外居住;而萬宜水庫的興建則使西貢移山填海,舊村落從此淹沒水底。是次是講座和考察將帶領參加者回到過去,認識西貢已消逝的歷史,感受昔日山區水鄉的情懷。
