Conferenze organizzate dalla prof.ssa Elisa Sabattini, Dipartimento di Scienze Umanistiche e Sociali, Università di Sassari:
“Yang Wenhui (1837-1911) e lo studio del Buddhismo nella Cina moderna”

(1) [17 marzo] “Le origini in Cina: missionari, ribelli e il canone buddhista (1837-1879)”

(2) [14 aprile] "Il viaggio in Europa: orientalismo, storia e scoperta del Tantrismo (1880-1911)”

Le due conferenze presenteranno vita e opera di Yang Wenhui (1837-1911), la figura che durante il periodo tardo imperiale ha introdotto in Cina le maggiori innovazioni nello studio del Buddhismo. Il canone Buddhista indiano, tradotto in Cina dal secondo secolo dell’era cristiana, fu catalogato sistematicamentenel settimo secolo, durante la dinastia Tang. L’organizzazionedel canone Buddhista rimase immutata fino agli ultimi decenni della dinastia Qing, quando, grazie ai metodi della filologia Orientale europea, le nuove idee sul Buddha storico, sulla natura del suo insegnamento originale, e sullo sviluppo del canonenell’India antica, furono introdotte in Cina. Nella seconda metà del diciannovesimo secolo Yang Wenhui, già editore e tipografo di scritture Buddhiste a Nanchino, viaggiò a Londra e Parigi. In Europa, il sanscritista giapponese Nanjo Bunyu (1849-1927), studente del rinomato storico delle religioni Max Müller (1823-1900), iniziò Yang alla filologia Orientale e al metodo scientifico che trasformò la sua comprensione del Buddhismo. Il Tantrismo, una tradizione rituale scomparsa in India e in Cina ma fiorente in Giappone e in Tibet contribuì a ridefinire il Buddhismo e la sua storia. Le due conferenze presenteranno uno spaccato sullo studio del Buddhismo nella Cina moderna in relazione con il flusso globale di nuove idee sul Buddha che caratterizzò il periodo tra metà Ottocento e inizio Novecento.

Media and Politics: Discourses, Cultures, ans Practices

The Department of Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication and the Contemporary Asia Research Centre of the University of Milan are pleased to announce the organization of an international conference on "Media and Politics: Discourses, Cultures, and Practices" which will be held at the Polo di Mediazione Interculturale e Comunicazione on 27th-28th May 2015.
Media and politics have always been interconnected. On the one hand, the media represent a channel through which the promotion and discussion of policies is effected and various representations of power and ideology are conveyed. On the other hand, the media play an important political role of their own, but are at the same time subject to political choices that have an impact on their editorial line. In some contexts, their influence on public opinion also has an important political weight.
The connection between mass media and politics, which at times affects the selection of news and the way it is produced, can be identified in discourse choices, the use of specific textual genres, representations with a cultural connotation, and also in the practical work of journalists and the reactions of the target public. Moreover, this connection can take various shapes, according to the political framework, the geographical location, and the linguistic, social, and cultural contexts in which it is expressed. Finally, the channels used for communication can in some ways influence the political value of the message being delivered.
In light of this premise, the relationship between media and politics can thus be analysed on distinct levels and from a variety of methodological perspectives. Adopting an intercultural and interdisciplinary approach, the conference seeks to explore the many facets of the relationship between various means of communication (print media, television, and Internet) and politics, through contributions covering its discursive, cultural, and professional aspects, and regarding diverse media contexts, such as Asia, America, Europe, and the Arabic World.
Abstracts must be in English and no longer than 300 words (including references and keywords). Proposals must be accompanied by a bio sketch no longer than 100 words. Please send your proposals to <media_politica2015@unimi.it> by 20th March 2015.

Deadline: 20 March 2015

Global China- China Postgraduate Network Annual Conference 2015

China has never existed in isolation. Its politics, economy, culture and society have always been influenced by external forces. Similarly China itself has had, and continues to have a political, economic and cultural impact on the world beyond its borders. The China Postgraduate Network’s annual conference seeks to explore the global engagements of China and the Chinese from a multidisciplinary perspective covering all disciplines in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

China’s global influence and influences raise a number of questions that the conference seeks to address. What is China’s role and place in the 21st century world? How have China’s relations with other countries been shaped by its economic rise since the 1980s? How far back can China’s global influence, and global influences on it, be traced? What is the future for ‘greater China’ in a globalising world? What can China’s global past tell us about its global future? How far has popular culture in China been influenced by global media and the internet? What impact has China’s popular and literary culture had outside of the Chinese speaking world? By answering these diverse questions our aim is to situate China within and increasingly globalised world and to identify the potential for future interdisciplinary research.

We welcome abstract submissions from scholars of all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities. Multi-disciplinary approaches are encouraged. We also welcome panel submissions comprising of 3-4 participants. Possible areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to:
- Movement: the impact of past and present migration into and out of China
- World systems & globalisation: The impact of the rise of China in the 21st century on global power and economic dynamics
- Soft power: China’s past and present cultural diplomacy
- Empires and nations: The impact of external empires on China and China’s status as an empire or nation state
- Technology: The Internet and social media in greater China
- Global culture: China and the politics of international awards (Nobel prizes, Oscars)
- Transnational Education: Foreign universities in China and Chinese students abroad
- Transnational public policy: global influences on China’s state services
- Greater China: The prospects for greater China post-Umbrella and Sunflower movements
- Minorities: What impact have civil rights movements and discourses of rights for minority groups had on greater China.

As a postgraduate conference, we are open to submissions from all postgraduate students with an interest in China. Abstracts should be between 250-300 words in English.

Please send abstracts to chinapostgraduatenetwork@gmail.com by Tuesday, 31st March 2015.

Deadline: 31 March 2015
