Symposium en concert : Fabriek van de Wereld. Hedendaagse Chinese muziek.

Museum Beelden aan Zee organiseert op vrijdagavond 17 juni a.s. het symposium Fabriek van de Wereld. Hedendaagse Chinese muziek. Dit evenement vindt plaats in het kader van de tentoonstelling Den Haag Onder de Hemel. Hedendaagse beeldhouwkunst uit China die van 6 juni t/m 11 september 2011 op diverse locaties in Den Haag te zien is.

 

De avond zal ingeleid worden door Jeroen Groenewegen, die enkele dagen voor dit feest zijn proefschrift aan de universiteit Leiden verdedigt. Hij zal de mechanismen waarmee de Chinese populaire muziek geproduceerd wordt uit elkaar schroeven. En proberen ze voor uw ogen weer in elkaar te zetten.

Jerome Williams van hun Nederlandse agency Earth Beat komt vertellen over de authenticiteit, transformaties en het internationale succesverhaal van Hanggai. Hanggai, een band uit Beijing die Mongoolse muziek speelt, inclusief keelzang.

 

Met haar pipa (een Chinese luit) en sprookjesachtige stem neemt Lin Di u mee naar een magische en kosmopolitische wereld waarin volksmuziek en samples naadloos in elkaar overlopen. Zonder de rest van haar gotische rockband Cold Fairyland, zal Lin Di nu haarzelf begeleiden, met behulp van een loopstation.

De muziek van Yan Jun spreekt u nadrukkelijk aan op hoe u omgaat met de wereld om u heen. Dat kan door het ruilen van spullen, het voordragen van politiek geëngageerde poëzie, of door middel van feedback loops.

Welkom in de wereld van de hedendaagse Chinese muziek.

China: Globalization and Glocalization: Call for Papers

China: Globalization and Glocalization

Graduate Conference Department of Chinese Studies, Leiden University
6-7 September 2011


Panel 1 Religions on Display in China: Global and Glocal  

An inquiry into the display of religions in contemporary China is in nature the inquiry into the intertwined relationships between the force of global economics, the reactions of local agencies, and attitudes of the state. Religion as a lens to explore this issue has special merit to layout a temporal and spatial trajectory of the diverse forms regarding the dynamics between the locals, the elites, and the state. The display of religion has continually been a contested field within this dynamics. As China welcomes both international and domestic tourists, the meaning of religion has become more multifaceted. This panel aims to understand the meaning and the face of religion in China by reconsidering the role of religion from imperial to modern China, from the center to the periphery. Any proposed topics that fit within the framework of religion in China are welcome. Unfortunately, We cannot guarantee reimbursement for travelling costs yet, but will, in any case, be able to offer private housing.

Proposals for papers, preferably in English, should be sent by e-mail, as a Word document, maximum one page in length, accompanied by a two page CV, to the following address: mwc511@gmail.com. These should be sent before June 8, 2011. Proposal acceptations will be confirmed by June 29, at the latest, and the completed texts must be provided by August 31. The conference will take place at Room 148, Cleveringaplaats 1 2311 BD Leiden, the Netherlands.

Contacts: Meiwen Chen (LIAS): mwc511@gmail.com

 Panel 3 China and ‘the Global’: Visual and Material Culture  

In this panel different case studies showcase interactions in the field of visual and material culture and put them in relation to China and ‘the Global’. Dutch and Flemish agency and cultural identity serve as the panel’s focal point in analyzing Chinese objects as works of art and transmitters of (cultural) information.Case studies include: Chinese-European objects in the treatise of a Flemish Jesuit around 1670, Chinese export art in 18th century Dutch collections and the contemporary designs of a “Holland Village” in Shenyang.The panel seeks to study its subjects with art historical as well as cultural studies methods to gain new insights on the links between art and the representation of culture, china and China. We look for one more MPhil or PhD student interested in presenting a case study within the outlined framework. We can, unfortunately, not guarantee re-imbursement for travelling costs yet, but will, in any case, be able to offer private housing.  Please send a short CV which includes your contacts and an abstract on what you would like to present to Bogdan Stamoran (stamoran@gmail.com) and/or Anna Grasskamp (a.k.grasskamp@hum.leidenuniv.nl). The abstract should be no longer than one page and should reach us before June 8. 

Panel 4 Chinese Intellectual History: Global and Local interactions  

This panel offers a platform to explore how knowledge is constructed, classified and canonized in traditional and modern China. Within this theme, special attention is paid to how local and global dynamics influence each other and how new systems of knowledge are developed. It sees encounters of knowledge with different origins as a trans-cultural process which neither implies a one way process of transmission and reception nor results in a fundamental break with a local past. It deals with issues such as universality and particularity in scientific classification, characteristics of Chinese classical studies, and the re-categorization of concepts such as li (ritual, propriety) into religion, education and custom in traditional and modern China.We look for two more MPhil or PhD students interested in presenting a case study within the outlined framework. We can, unfortunately, not guarantee reimbursement for travelling costs yet, but will, in any case, be able to offer private housing.Please send a short CV which includes your contact details and an abstract on what you would like to present to Rens Krijgsman krijgsman.rens@gmail.com. The abstract should be no longer than one page and should reach us before June 8, 2011.

Wednesday 18 May | Lecture by prof. dr. Lothar von Falkenhausen (UCLA)

Archaeology and its Role in Contemporary China

This lecture will discuss the position of archaeology in the concert of the human sciences in 20th and 21st-century China, the relationship of modern archaeology (introduced into China in the 1920s) to traditional antiquarian practices, and the biographies of two dozen major practitioners in their historical contexts.

Wednesday 18 May, 4 pm
Lipsius building, room 003

Lothar von Falkenhausen obtained a PhD in anthropology at Harvard University in 1988. Having taught at Stanford University and UC Riverside, he came to UCLA in 1993 and was promoted to Professor in 1997. His research concerns the archaeology of the Chinese Bronze Age, preferably focusing on large interdisciplinary and historical issues on which archaeological materials can provide significant new information.

One example of this orientation are his numerous publications on musical instruments (especially chime-bells), culminating in his book Suspended Music (University of California Press, 1993). Other publications concern ancient Chinese bronzes and their inscriptions, ritual, regional cultures, archaeological synthesis, ancient trans-Asiatic contacts, and methodological issues.

As the American co-PI of the ongoing Peking University-UCLA Joint Archaeological Project, he is directing excavations at ancient salt-production sites in the Yangzi River Basin. He serves as editor of the Journal of East Asian Archaeology and of the Early China Special Monographs Series.

China Seminar 4 May: Peter Ho

CHINA
SEMINAR | 04 MAY 2011 | Peter Ho | Land Evictions, Real Estate Bubble and Social
Conflict in China

 

Land Evictions, Real Estate Bubble and
Social Conflict in China

 

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Ir.
Peter Ho (Professor of Chinese Economy and Development, LIAS/MEARC)

Expertise: Chinese Economy and International
Development Studies


Date and time:  Wednesday, 4 May 2011, 15.15 – 16.00h

This is a departure from the usual format: a 30
minute presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of discussion. We hope this
allows busy people to attend the Seminar without taking away too much of their valuable
time!


Venue:  Arsenaal
building, room 001

Language:  English

 

Abstract:
This paper examines the current state of the property rights system for
agricultural land in present-day China. It explores whether the
rapid urbanization and forced evictions have had any negative effect on the institutional
credibility of the agricultural land tenure system in terms of the support it
can rally from the rural populace. Based on the findings of a nation-wide rural
survey of over one thousand farms, it is demonstrated that the view of the
Chinese countryside being ripped by grievances over land, might need revision.
In addition, the social support for the rural land lease system – despite its
tenure insecurity due to
redistributions in response to demographic change – has basically remained
unchanged compared with a decade ago. However, the research also found that in
the instances when conflicts over property rights do occur, discord over expropriation due to urban sprawl is one of
the prime causes. This is a matter of concern as it affects farmers’ trust in
the Chinese state in protecting their rights to land.
