DESCRIPTION

Description
Tsinghua Week at UC Berkeley (April 5-7, 2010)

The University of California, Berkeley welcomes faculty, administrators, and students from Tsinghua University to campus for "Tsinghua Week at UC Berkeley 2010." Tsinghua University, a top-tier comprehensive research university in Beijing, China, has sent faculty members, administrators, staff, and students to Berkeley to participate in events and activities designed to promote research and learning at both universities. Areas of exchange range from science and engineering to architecture, philosophy, history, public policy, social welfare, and higher education. During the three-day event, departments, schools, and research units on the Berkeley campus will serve as sites of synergy and discussion designed to bridge research and learning across the Pacific and to strengthen ties between the two universities. Student events will highlight university life on both campuses and encourage cultural exchange.

Tsinghua Week events are hosted by the Office of the Chancellor and organized and staffed by the Institute of East Asian Studies. Co-organizers include: Banatao Institute @ CITRIS Berkeley, Center for Studies in Higher Education (CSHE), College of Engineering, Department of Architecture, Department of Physics, Department of Psychology, Goldman School of Public Policy, Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways (PATH).

All academic panels are free and open to the public. Join us for three days of stimulating discussion and activities.

Co-sponsored by the Institute of East Asian Studies and the Center for Chinese Studies.

Title: Religious Encounters in China: Buddhists, Christians, and Nestorians Under the Ming and Qing
Host: Institute of East Asian Studies
Cosponsor: Center for Chinese Studies
Location: IEAS Conference Room, 2223 Fulton Street, 6th floor

4:15 - 5:15 p.m. - Academic Panel: Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS)

In the last few decades, the literary quality of historical narratives and the historical quality of literature have been considerably recognized and debated in both China and the West. The debate in China, however, actually evolves into an issue about the relationship between historical representation and new possibilities for the Chinese writer to write fiction in the Chinese language at the present time. A significant number of novelists, though in subtly different ways, have produced impressive works in an attempt to open up new ways of representing the past as well as the present. While much of the discussion in the West of why contemporary writers are writing historical novels "has been confined within the discussions of Empire or Women, or to the debate between 'escapism' and 'relevance'," to cite A. S. Byatt's observation, the debate and practice in China appear to complicate the Western paradigm a little. The Chinese writer tends to be more interested in exploring personal and local narrative modes through which history as well as literature can be articulated. Their exploration is not only about the relationship between history and literature as narrative forms, but also about reimagining China in response to the notion of modernity and the trends of globalization. This paper mainly takes Li Er's Coloratura (Hua Qiang ) as an example to illustrate the contemporary Chinese writer's efforts in regenerating historical imagination and thus expanding the aesthetic scope and structural capacity of historical narrative in fiction by way of Chinese experience and perception.

Title: History and Fiction as Narrative: A Chinese Perspective
Host: Institute of East Asian Studies
Cosponsor: English Department
Location: IEAS Conference Room, 2223 Fulton Street, 6th floor
Participants:

  • Lecture: Li Cao
  • Resondent: Steven Lee
  • Moderator: Samuel Otter


5:30 - 7:30 p.m. - Academic Panel: Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS)

At this historical moment, with China undergoing dynamic change and internal challenges, its philosophical underpinnings are revisited. Speakers from Tsinghua discuss Marxism and Confucianism as understood in China, historically and within the contemporary context. Marxism — shared as a central organizing philosophy by much of Eurasia until the late 20th century — is discussed by Berkeley respondents in a wide-ranging conversation on comparative theory and practice. Cosponsored by the Institute of East Asian Studies, Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, and the Institute of European Studies.

Title: Marxism and Confucianism Today: Comparative Philosophies in the Eurasian Realm
Host: Institute of East Asian Studies
Cosponsors: Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, and Institute of European Studies
Location: IEAS Conference Room, 2223 Fulton Street, 6th floor
Participants:

  • Lectures: Zhengxiang Wei and Daniel Bell
  • Respondents: Martin E. Jay, John Connelly, Wen-hsin Yeh, Jason Wittenberg, and D. Paul Thomas
  • Moderator: Carla Hesse
