Translating the Naked Body: the Nudist Movement in Early Twentieth Century China

Craig A. Smith
In the early twentieth century, East Asian intellectuals encountered new knowledge from the West, which they often adapted to fit existing vocabularies and systems of thought. As science gained a new and privileged position in China and Japan, these intellectuals opened the door to an array of ideas through translation. This paper examines Chinese works on nudism in the 1910s, which are translations from English and Japanese. It offers insight into early twentieth-century intellectuals’ use of science and the growing belief in polarized civilizations. It also shows the ways in which translation could be employed in larger political debates.

Xiong Shili's Understanding of Reality and Function during the Period between 1920 and 1937

Sang Yu
Xiong Shili 熊十力 (1885–1968) was one of the most influential Chinese philosophers of the twentieth century. He is generally considered a founding figure of New Confucianism. Xiong's metaphysics focussed mainly on the concepts of Reality (ti 體) and Function (yong 用), one of the key conceptual polarities in traditional Chinese philosophy. His mature philosophical system of Reality and Function was established in the early 1930s. In this seminar, I will introduce Xiong's understanding of Reality and Function between 1920 and 1937. I will pay particular attention to how Xiong's thought changed during this period, and to the sources on which he drew to elucidate his ideas.
