Masculinizing Jianghu Spaces: Homosociality, Nationalism, and Chineseness

Geng Song
Jianghu 江湖 (rivers and lakes) refers to the imagined spatial arena in Chinese literature and culture that is parallel to, or sometimes in a tangential relationship with, mainstream society. Inhabited by merchants, craftsmen, beggars, and vagabonds, and later bandits, outlaws, and gangsters, the jianghu space constitutes a “field” (to borrow Pierre Bourdieu’s term) that produces alternative subjectivities in traditional Chinese culture. In most representations, jianghu is primarily a social world of men, which honours masculine moral codes.

Neutrality and Collaboration in an 'East Asian Casablanca': Sino-Portuguese Relations and Macau, 1937-1945

Helena F. S. Lopes
This paper places Macau within the wider historiography of the Second World War in China, and stresses its similarities to the better-known cases of Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Guangzhouwan. It argues that instead of strict neutrality, Sino-Portuguese contacts and Macau's local wartime experience were marked by multiple layers of collaboration that involved a myriad of actors of different nationalities. These attest to the global interactions taking place in China during that conflict.
