(I) University of Pennsylvania East Asia Events

NORIKO HORIGUCHI, University of Tennessee - "Women Adrift: The Literature of Japan's Imperial Body"

Date: Friday, October 21, 2011
Time: 2:00 pm
Location: Stiteler Hall B21 | 208 S. 37th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104

In her presentation at the CEAS Humanities Colloquium at Penn, Horiguchi will demonstrate how women’s actions and representations of women’s bodies redrew the border and expanded, rather than transcended, the empire of Japan.

Based on a chapter from her book, Women Adrift: The Literature of Japan’s Imperial Body (forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press, December 2011), Horiguchi specifically analyzes the boundary-crossing writings of a prominent female author Hayashi Fumiko (1904–1951). In Hayashi’s writings—and in Naruse Mikio’s postwar film adaptations of Hayashi’s novels—Horiguchi reveals how women asserted their own agency by transgressing the borders of nation and gender. At the same time, we see how Hayashi’s work, conducted under various colonial conditions, ended up reinforcing Japanese nationalism, racialism, and imperial expansion. In her reappraisal of the paradoxical positions of Hayashi and her female characters, Horiguchi complicates narratives of Japanese empire and of women’s role in its expansion.

Ambassador Young-mok Kim was appointed to the Consul General of the Republic of Korea in New York in August 2010.

** UPDATED ** PETER DUUS, William H. Bonsall Professor of Japanese History, Emeritus; Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution - "Rediscovering America: Japanese Perspectives on the American Century"

Date: Thursday, October 27, 2011
Time: 12:00 pm (lunch will be provided)
Location: College Hall, Room 209 (History Lounge)

Early impressions of Japanese visitors to the United States were naive – and usually positive. The country and its people often appeared to them exotic, confusing or opaque but rarely threatening. By the turn of the twentieth century, however, their observations became more complex, tinged with criticism, resentment and often hostility. Some have characterized this as the beginning of Japan’s “love-hate” relationship with the United States but that hardly does justice to the ambivalence of Japanese perspectives on the United States during the American Century.  It oversimplifies their range, and it ignores the fact that positive and negative perspectives often went hand in hand. As one postwar visitor noted, “Can someone close to us sometimes be our enemy and our conqueror, sometimes our lover and our teacher, and moreover our dominator too? . . .For the Japanese, the United States of America is a country just like such a person.”  The talk will explore the ambivalence reflected in accounts of visitors to America as it emerged as a hegemonic world power and as a society that often awed and appalled them.

MARY GALLAGHER, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Michigan - "Bottom-Up Implementation?  Legal Mobilization as Law Enforcement in China"

Date: Thursday, October 27, 2011
Time: 4:30 pm
Location: Jon M. Huntsman Hall 245
MG Mary Gallagher is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan, where she is also the Director of the Center for Chinese Studies, and a faculty associate at the Center for Comparative Political Studies at the Institute for Social Research. Professor Gallagher received her Ph.D. in Politics in 2001 from Princeton University and her B.A. from Smith College in 1991. She was a foreign student in China in 1989 at Nanjing University. She also taught at the Foreign Affairs College in Beijing from 1996-1997. She was a Fulbright Research Scholar from 2003 to 2004 at East China University of Politics and Law in Shanghai, China. It was funded by the Fulbright Association and the National Science Foundation. Her research areas are Chinese politics, comparative politics of transitional and developing states, and law and society. The underlying question that drives her research in all of these areas is whether the development of markets is linked to the sequential development of democratic politics and legal rationality. Put simply, she is interested in the relationships between capitalism, law and democracy. Her empirical research in China is used to explore these larger theoretical questions.

Korean Painting, Hankookwah and Calligraphy: The Expression of Nonstop Silence - Art Exhibition open until October 30, 2011

Date: present – Sunday, October 30th, 2011
Gallery Hours Monday – Friday: 11am – 6pm; closed Saturday and Sunday
Location: 6705 Old York Rd. Philadelphia, PA 19126
Admission: Free
Gallery Description:

Philip Jaisohn Gallery is pleased to present Contemporary Korean Painting and Calligraphy Group Exhibition :The Expression of Nonstop Silence, curated by Insook Seol. Silence is rooted in meditation, and meditation lies at the bottom of finding the truth. Silence brings one closer to God, and, according to Mother Theresa, it is the way to express one’s spirit. However, it is difficult for modern people who are constantly exposed to a variety of visual sensory appeals to come to terms with the silence flowing into a deep, inner world. That’s perhaps the reason that Zen may become the icon of the silence. Dhyana, a Zen term, means “empty mind”. The empty mind is void of worldly desires, and Zen is beyond silence. That makes “Dharma Exhibition” important, especially for some people who work hard to find who they are in the inner world. I believe that Korean painting and calligraphic can be the way to find Zen of the Truth. Through this exhibition, I would like to seek various expressions of the silence in the deep, inner mind of Hankookwha painters and Korean calligraphers and to amplify the imagination of the audience in order to find the nature of tranquility.

Participating Artists: Seungsook Chang, Soohyen Cho, Hyundong Cho Jeonsook Choi, Dongsoon Choi, Seongyul Choi Sungmo Hong, Insoon Kim, Busik Kim Myungsook Kim, Taejin Kim, Youngjoo Kwon Choulgyu Lee, Seoung Yeon Lee, Namsu Lee Jaeseong Moon, Choonseong Park, Changhee Ryu Bongja Ryu, Jihoon Shin

** UPDATED ** Foreign Policy Research Institute & Reserve Officers Association Conference - "Contested Terrain: China's Periphery and International Relations in Asia"

Date: Friday, November 4, 2011
Time: 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Location: Reserve Officers Association, One Constitution Avenue NE, Washington DC
Website: http://www.fpri.org/research/asia/internationalrelationsinasia1111/

China’s long-term rise and its recent international assertiveness have made long-standing and recently emerging issues of relations along China’s periphery matters of pressing international concern. The rapid development that has provided the material underpinnings for China’s rapid rise as a regional power has been fueled partly by economic integration along China’s periphery. Foreign investment flows, integration in a regional supply chain that feeds global markets and burgeoning intraregional trade have made Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and other states in East Asia key participants in China’s rise and eroded the economic significance of political borders in the region.

This conference will address this complex cluster of issues through papers and panels, each of which will be organized along geographic lines but will also have a distinct analytical focus on the issues most germane to the region.

Speakers Include:

Michael Green, Georgetown University and Center for Strategic and International Studies - "Implications for U.S. Policy and Interests"

John Garver, Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, Georgia Institute of Technology, “China’s Relations with South Asia: Cooperation, Conflict and Implications for the United States”

Allen Carlson, Cornell University, “A Hard or Soft Frontier?: New Chinese Discussions about Securing China’s Territorial Periphery”

Jacques deLisle, FPRI and University of Pennsylvania, “Sea Changes?: China’s Approach(es) to Territorial Claims and Sovereignty in the South China Sea.”

(V) East Asia Study Opportunities and Queries

* Wharton Asia Economic Review (WAER): Seeking journal submissions for Fall 2011 issue - deadline to submit: November 18, 2011

The Wharton Asia Economic Review (WAER) is seeking submissions for our Fall 2011 issue. WAER is an undergraduate academic journal of the Wharton China Business Society at the University of Pennsylvania. WAER is committed to providing thoughtful analyses of how social, economic, political, and international changes affect business and commerce throughout Asia, and how Asia, in turn, affects the business world. Thus, we encourage any students who have written academic papers or theses related to social, economic, and political issues in Asia to submit them to WAER for possible publication.

This year, WAER is also expanding our scope of analysis to include not only formal academic papers, but also interest pieces, opinion editorials, or political cartoons. We believe that breadth is just as important as depth when it comes to analyzing economics in Asia.

Feel free to submit work that you think will contribute to a better understanding of the business dynamic in Asia. The deadline for submission is November 18, 2011. Submissions should be emailed as Word documents and citations should be formatted in the APA style. Please email any submissions to contact.waer@gmail.com. For more information about WAER and to read our past issues, please visit http://www.whartonchina.com/journal/.

(VI) Conferences and Workshops

CALL FOR PAPERS: Myths and Orthodoxies in East Asian Art and History, Princeton University Graduate Symposium - deadline to apply: November 6, 2011

Graduate Student Symposium in East Asian Art
Saturday, 3 March 2012
101 McCormick Hall, Princeton University
9:30 am – 5:00 pm

Organized by the P.Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Center for East Asian Art
Cosponsored by the Princeton University Art Museum

Keynote Speaker: Professor Donald F. McCallum, Department of Art History, UCLA Asuka Myths and Orthodoxies: Ikarugadera – Umayado no ōji – Hōryūji

Myths and orthodoxies have given rise to compelling beliefs and canonical lineages in the arts and art histories of East Asia. The narratives of myths and orthodoxies uphold certain “truths” at the expense of others and serve the needs of those who perpetuate them. But what kind of history becomes an “orthodoxy,” and what sort of story can we call a “myth”? How do these stories sustain their power, and when do they lose power? Who decides? How do visualized myths and orthodoxies shape what we believe?  Do we believe the textual or the spoken more readily than the visual? Do visual materials help create, communicate, and maintain myths and orthodoxies in ways that text can never accomplish? How do the uses of “myth” and “orthodoxy” in discussions of historiography change our understanding of history and art history? Does identifying myths and orthodoxies tend to serve a revisionist purpose? When something is called a myth, is the validity of its message automatically called into question? How do orthodoxies remodel their self-evident “truths” as they progress through time?

We invite graduate students in East Asian art history and related fields to submit abstracts of 300–400 words for papers that will address myths and orthodoxies in their various forms. Please send your abstract with a copy of your curriculum vitae by  Monday, 7 November 2011, to:
