CHINA SEMINAR | 24 APRIL 2013 | Kai Filipiak| Ming Martial Arts: Characteristic Features and Problems of Research

 

Ming Martial Arts: Characteristic Features and Problems of Research

Speaker:  Dr. Kai Filipiak (University of Leipzig)
Expertise:  Political and Social History of Late Imperial China, Military History, Chinese Martial Arts
Date and time:  Wednesday, 24 April 2013, 15.15-17.00
Venue:  Arsenaal building, East Asian Library, Green Room

Language:  English

Abstract: The paper deals with characteristic features of martial arts during the Ming dynasty. Starting from the question of what martial arts is or seems to be, the paper provides an introduction into types of sources, discusses important trends of martial arts development during the Ming dynasty and explains the social origins of martial arts practice. It will be shown that the development is characterized by aspects of differentiation, specialization, and regionalization of martial arts. Using the example of the military, it can be demonstrated that the practice of martial arts was closely related to its purpose that defined the performance. Finally, the paper presents different social groups practicing martial arts for different reasons. The last section will fix some problems in Ming martial arts research today.

Dr. Filipiak obtained his Ph.D. from Leipzig University. He has been a lecturer at Leipzig University, Philips University (Marburg), and a visiting researcher at  and is currently also visiting professor at People’s University in Beijing as well as senior lecturer in  Chinese Studies at Leipzig University. His publications include a number of articles on Chinese military history.

This seminar is sponsored by Stichting Shilin, Leiden University Journal of Young Sinology.

CHINA SEMINAR | 3 APRIL 2013 | Rogier Creemers | Neo-liberal Leninism with Chinese characteristics: An epistemology of China’s media policy

 

 

Neo-liberal Leninism with Chinese characteristics: an epistemology of China’s media policy

Speaker:  Dr. Rogier Creemers

Expertise: Chinese media and communications law and policy

Date and time:  Wednesday, 3 April 2013, 15.15-17.00
Venue:  Arsenaal building, 014

Language:  English

Abstract: “In this presentation, I will provide an overview of the evolution of media policy in China throughout the 20th Century, and how it is connected to wider political, social and economic trends. I will argue that media have been primarily conceived in an instrumental manner, in order to achieve the objectives of self-strengthening and development, China’s core political mission since the mid-19th Century.

This has led to an eclectic search for tools and methods, which has been deeply informed by monist modes of thinking, which are both inherited from the imperial era well as Marxist-Leninist thinking and practice. However, this has also been supplemented by increased marketization, resulting in an eclectic approach to media governance.”

Speaker’s resume: Dr. Creemers studied Sinology at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, where he also completed a Master in International Relations, after a year in Beijing for language training. He wrote a doctoral dissertation at Maastricht University, in which he explains media piracy in China from the point of view of media control, and assesses the potential impact of international trade law on this phenomenon. In 2012, he joined the Programme for Comparative Media Law and Policy at the University of Oxford. He is preparing a new monograph on the development of public communications law in China, with particular attention to the historical and philosophical factors that shaped it.

20 March: IIAS lunch lecture: Dao/Tao: What? or How?- Dr. Ping Wang

Dao/Tao: What? or How?

In this Lunch Lecture IIAS fellow Dr Ping Wang looks at Dao as refracted through the lenses  provided by Guo Xiang (252? – 312).

“Daoist texts, like Confucian classics, have survived the passage of time not to mention the vicissitudes of recurring social upheaval and changing philosophical fashions over millennia.  Many philosophers and scholars throughout Chinese history have contributed to the dissemination of  Daoist  philosophy.  My current book project is a study of Guo Xiang Commentary to theZhuangzi (Zhuangzi zhu 《庄子注》), the most  influential version of Zhuangzi.  Through the lenses provided by Guo Xiang,  we can see how Daoism, one of the three main strands of thought, have coexisted and grown with Confucianism and Buddhism. This talk, through the examination of Guo’s interpretation of “Dao” and other related concepts in philosophical and historical exegeses, attempts to demonstrate how Guo Xiang sought to synthesize Confucian ethics within the Daoist philosophy.”

Lunch is provided. Please register on the IIAS website
