La Cina a quarant’anni dall’inizio della politica di “riforma e apertura”: sviluppi, orientamenti e dibattiti in ambiti politico e culturale

Giornata di studi in ricordo di Angela Pascucci

Martedì 29 gennaio, presso il Dipartimento di Studi Orientali dell’Università “Sapienza”, a Roma, si terrà una giornata di studi dedicata all’evoluzione politica e culturale della Cina contemporanea, organizzata dalla Sezione Asia Orientale del Dottorato di Ricerca in “Civiltà dell’Asia e dell’Africa”. L’incontro prende spunto dal quarantesimo anniversario dell’avvio, nel dicembre 1978, del processo di riforma che ha dato il via all’attuale grande sviluppo della Cina e alla sua ascesa sulla scena internazionale. Piuttosto che la crescita economica, i diversi interventi esamineranno, in una prospettiva diacronica, sia i delicati aspetti politici, spesso tralasciati rispetto ai molteplici mutamenti del Paese, sia le rilevanti trasformazioni in ambito culturale e letterario.
Sarà inoltre ricordata la figura di una collega giornalista recentemente scomparsa,Angela Pascucci, grande esperta della Cina contemporanea (https://www.angelapascucci.eu/).

PHD STUDENTSHIPS IN ASIAN STUDIES AT NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY – Northern Ireland and North East (NINE) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP)

The Northern Ireland and North East Doctoral Training Partnership (NINE DTP) invites top-calibre applicants to apply to its 2019/20 doctoral studentships competition. Over fifty fully-funded doctoral studentships are available across the full range of the social sciences, including Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Sociology, and Linguistics. This competition also welcomes applicants interested in Language Based Area Studies, with scholarships available for candidates focusing on Asian Studies.

Prospective students can read about the application process here.
The application deadline is 18 January 2019.

At Newcastle, NINE DTP students benefit from the existence of a dynamic academic community which approaches Asia from a broad range of disciplinary perspectives. In 2015, the University established the Asian Studies Research Group within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in order to support the exciting research being done at Newcastle on the region. Newcastle University researchers investigate various countries in Asia, from the Central Asian nations (Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan), to India, Nepal and Indonesia in the South, and on to China and Japan in the East. We also undertake research on Asian diasporas across the globe.

The Interdisciplinary Asian Studies strand offers supervision in the following main areas:

– Ethnicity, Identity, Nation and Borders: Asian studies scholars at Newcastle bring a wide range of expertise in evolving ethnic identities (esp. Xinjiang), historical ethnic conflicts, cultural identities, ‘humiliation heritage’, invented tradition and faux-history in China; soft power and diplomacy in China; the impact of internationalisation of higher education on students’ identity construction in China; global Chinese diaspora studies; nationalism, state formation, ethnic histories and boundaries in Central Asia; cultural identity and nostalgia in Japan; elections, party politics, Conservatism, Socialism, and the right-wing in Japan; sacred space, belief, and organisational control in medieval Japan; discourse, identity, nationalism and legitimacy in Iran; Armenian identity (incl. descent myths); racism, resistance and mobility in Bangladesh; cultural hybridity in Indian architecture; political identity in southeast Asia; the politics of transitional justice in East Timor; and power, (in)security and space in Israel-Palestine.

– Film, literature, media and representation: Researchers at Newcastle have a sustained interest in independent film-making and grassroots film festivals in China; transnational stardom, performance and audience/reception studies in China; representations of gender and sexuality in Chinese media; Japanese animation; character construction in Japanese literature; Indian/South Asian literature in English translation; Western media representations of Asia; the media, popular culture and world politics (esp. southeast Asia); and the empowerment of marginalised people in Iran through participatory film-making.

– Modernity and modernisation: Asia research at Newcastle investigates Chinese modernity studies, including cross-cultural studies between China and the West; modern Chinese literature and culture; modern Chinese intellectual history; environmental politics; built heritage and urban conservation; Han and Tang imaginaries in Chinese urban space; sustainable urban and regional development; geospatial technology, citizen participation and urban governance; and ageing societies in China and Hong Kong. We also offer specialist expertise in business, political economy and corruption in modern Japan, and in colonial modernities in India.

– Popular culture: Research at Newcastle pays particular attention to contemporary Japanese manga, anime, artwork and pop-culture; Japanese popular history, cultural identity (including collective and mediated memory) and nostalgia; self-representations by China’s ethnic minorities in popular song and consumption practices; numbers in Chinese culture, education and environment; and nursery rhymes and proverbs in China.

– Gender studies: Asian studies experts at Newcastle research representations of gender and sexuality in China; re-Islamisation, gender roles and the gendering of ethno-politics in China (esp. Xinjiang); gender studies, feminist theory, and normativity in Japan; gendered factory spaces in Pakistan; masculinity, gender relations, and gender based violence in urban India; and sexual trafficking in Nepal.

Please direct further enquiries to the pathway leader, Professor Rosaleen Howard (rosaleen.howard@ncl.ac.uk) or to Dr Joanne Smith Finley (j.smithfinley@ncl.ac.uk ).

Digital China Fellow (Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies)

The Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies is recruiting a Digital China Fellow to help lead work on our China Digital Scholarship/Digital Humanities projects. Through their own research and support for the research of other faculty and students, the Digital China Fellow will help define and implement future directions for Digital Scholarship on China at Harvard. Her/his work will be ideally divided into the following areas, although flexibility is possible, and indeed probably necessary, based on the skill set of the Fellow. Please note that this position is currently funded for two years. An extension is possible, but dependent on future potential funding sources.
  • Provide support for faculty and students using digital tools and methods to conduct research on China. This will involve delivering workshops for the Harvard community on digital research methods, holding office hours to provide assistance for faculty and students using digital tools in their work, proactively reaching out to faculty, and otherwise providing research support services.
  • Building cyberinfrastructure for China Studies and database development. The Digital China Fellow will help coordinate improved linkage and sharing of data among databases and platforms related to China studies. This would include working with the China Biographical Database Project, the China Historical Geographic Information System, and other databases outside of Harvard. Experience with command line environments, API’s, and linked open data; knowledge of relevant programming or scripting language; and the ability to write database queries in SQL would all be a plus.
  • 50% of the Digital China Fellow’s time will be used to conduct their own independent research, either in the field of digital methods itself or using digital methods to research some aspect of China Studies.
  • Providing regular updates to project supporters and the ability and willingness to identify and pursue grant funding to continue this project is required.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, C.V., two-page statement of research, and the names and contact information for two referees. Referees should submit a letter that speaks to the candidate’s academic potential and digital scholarship abilities directly. The application can be accessed at this link.
The deadline is January 11, 2019.
The position will provide a stipend of $60,000 annually, along with research funds, and health insurance.
