CHINA SEMINAR | 22 MAY 2013 | Jeroen Wiedenhof | Chao’s Grammar: Historic or historical?

        

Chao’s Grammar: Historic or historical?

Speaker: Dr Jeroen Wiedenhof (LIAS, LUCL)
Expertise:  Chinese linguistics, syntax and semantics, evolutionary linguistics, writing systems, language teaching (Mandarin, Classical Chinese)
Date and time:  Wednesday, 22 May 2013, 15.15-17.00
Venue:  Arsenaal building, 014

Language:  English

Yuen Ren Chao’s 趙元任 Grammar of spoken Chinese represents a milestone in Chinese linguistics. At the time of its publication in 1968, it brought a wealth of new data and insightful analyses to the field. But in 2013, how relevant can this inventory of the language still be? In this lecture, I will consider the work’s windfalls and pitfalls for linguistic research, for linguistics teaching, and for language pedagogy.

This China Seminar session serves as a try-out for my contribution at the 25th annual North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics <http://naccl25.net>. I am eager to hear your suggestions about its contents, and about my presentation. The talk is intended to be of interest for students, fellow linguists and fellow language teachers.

Students: teaching programs are always evolving. A recent example is the launch of a Chinese Linguistics track as part of the Leiden University MA program in Linguistics. Within this track, a course on the History of Chinese linguistics is in the making. The subject of this talk would have a home in such a course: I am interested in your comments.

Linguists: an excellent grammar outlives the language it describes. Since Chao’s Grammar, no treatment of Mandarin has approached his work in scope and detail. But the language has changed, reflecting China’s social transformations. In keeping with the spirit of Chao’s documentation of spoken norms, I will present clear instances of recent linguistic change.

Language teachers: close ties between language teaching and linguistics were a hallmark of Chao’s work. I will discuss the current relevance of this relationship for curriculum planning in second-language acquisition, especially for languages with non-alphabetic scripts.

About the speaker: Jeroen Wiedenhof is a linguist and language teacher at Leiden University, with joint appointments at the institutes for area studies and for linguistics (LIAS, LUCL). He was trained as a sinologist in Leiden and Peking. Apart from his work in Chinese and general linguistics, he has published on the origin and evolution of language in humankind.

China Seminar: 13 MAY 2013 | Dingping Guo | The Changing Patterns of Communist Party-State Relations in China

The Changing Patterns of Communist Party-State Relations in China: Comparative Perspective

Speaker:  Prof. Dingping GUO (Fudan University and Confucius Institute Nottingham University)
Date and time:  Monday 13 May 2013, 16.00-17.00
Venue:  Lipsius 235c

Language:  English

 

Summary: Although many remarkable changes have taken place in Chinese politics since the reform and opening policies were adopted in the late 1970s, and most of scholars on Chinese politics have studied all different kinds of political reforms and political developments during the past three decades, almost all China experts take it for granted that the Communist Party-state resists any changes. I will try to explore and explain the different patterns of relations between Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Chinese state by analyzing the legislative developments and changing relations between the CCP and People’s Congresses (PCs). While many scholars have made great contributions to the studies of Party-government relations in China, I tend to regard the CCP-PCs relation as a more important and promising field of study when we discuss the Communist party-state relations in contemporary China. The whole lecture will include the following four parts. First, a new theoretical framework of analysis will be introduced based on literature review. Second, the legislative developments and changing patterns of Communist party-state relations will be analyzed in my theoretical framework. Third, the new pattern of Communist party-state relations emerging since the early 1990s in today’s China will be studied and especially the recent developments about the increasing number of Communist party secretaries who serve as Local People’s Congress (LPC) standing committee chairs will be described and discussed in detail. In concluding remarks, after summarizing the main points, I will discuss the implications of the changing patterns of Communist party-state relations for the future state-building and democratization in China from comparative perspective.

Dingping Guo is professor of political science in School of International Relations and Public Affairs of Fudan University, concurrently serving as Chinese Director of the Confucius Institute at the University of Nottingham. Before joining Nottingham, he was Vice-Dean of the Institute of International Studies (2009-2012); Director of the Center for Japanese Studies (2008-2012) at Fudan University. His research interests focus on comparative politics, especially democracy and political development. His publications include books such as Culture and Democracy (editor, Fudan Political Science Series No. 8, Shanghai People’s Press, 2010), Studies of Political and Diplomatic Transformation in Japan (editor, Fudan University Press, 2010), The Community-Building in East Asia: Theory and Practice. (editor, Fudan University Press, 2008), Governance and Democracy in Shanghai (Chongqing Press,2005), A Study of the Democratic Transition in Korea (Beijing: Social Science Press of China, 2000), Political Parties and Government (Hangzhou: Zhejiang People’s Press, 1998), Pluralist Politics (Hong Kong: Joint Publishing House,1994), and many articles and essays in Chinese, English and Japanese.
