    Symposium on What is China? 何為中國? (CCL)

    Symposium on What is China? 何為中國? (CCL)


    2015-03-23

    The notion of “China” (中國Zhongguo) remains a controversial issue severely debated at academic and popular levels. “Zhongguo” could mean a geographical site, a political nation-state, a civilization or a people. Its complicated conceptualization has been discussed and elaborated in modern scholarship. The publication of Ge Zhaoguang’s Hewei Zhongguo? jiangyu, minzu, wenhua yu lishi (What is China? borders, nationality, culture and history) has re-ignited the debate in Chinese communities and abroad recently. The symposium attempts to ask: What does it mean to speak of “Zhongguo” in the twenty-first century? In what way the notion of “Zhongguo” is intertwined with the growing world impacts exerted by the nation-state in Mainland China? How would the debate on “Zhongguo” relate to the self-understanding of the communities like Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other neighboring countries?

    座談會將分兩場,一場在浸會大學舉行,另一場則在香港大學。日期是三月二十三及二十四日。討論以葛兆光教授的新作《何為中國?》為起點,從「何時中國,何處中國,何者中國,何如中國」等方向展開討論。

    Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context - Annual International Conference

    Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context - Annual International Conference


    2015-02-13

    Broad changes in Asia today are rapidly transforming the everyday processes by which mobility/ speed, the sense of place, visual culture, literary and cinematic imaginations, body/subjectivity/desire, consumption culture, rights-based concerns, and so on, are constituted. In postgraduate education, comparative works that rigorously chart common questions and problematics, as
    well as posing important conjunctural questions for the future of East Asian cultural studies, remain rare.

    This conference aims at bringing together scholars and postgraduate students from two locales – or two distinct formations of cultural studies, if you will – in Hong Kong and South Korea in order to chart a space of dialogue for comparative learning and critique.

    The conference will address the following two broad themes:
    --- Cultural Studies and/as Movements in East Asia
    --- Innovating Textual Methods

    Invited Speakers
    Prof. Melani Budianta, University of Indonesia
    Prof. John Erni, Hong Kong Baptist University
    Dr. Kim Ky Ok, Yonsei University, South Korea
    Dr. Wang Chih-ming, Academia Sinica, Taiwa


    Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context - Annual International Conference
    Date: 12 & 13 Feb 2015
    Venue: Multi-purpose Hall, Level 2, SCC, Madam Kwok Chung Bo Fun Sports and Cultural Centre, Shaw Campus, HKBU
