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.

Opening night: newly discovered photographs of Beijing, 1900–1902

Richard Rigby
This exhibition is selected from an album of photographs taken in Beijing in 1901-1902 shortly after the end of the Boxer Rebellion 義和團運動 (1899-1901). Lively detailed scenes of the city and its daily life each have a caption in Russian and convey a vivid sense of the time.

Newly discovered photographs of Beijing, 1900–1902

The photographs of Beijing in this exhibition were taken in 1901 and 1902 shortly after the end of the Boxer Uprising 義和團運動. They come from an album in the possession of Svetlana Paichadze, assistant professor at Hokkaido University. Although we cannot identify the photographer, it is very likely that the photographs were taken by representatives of the Russian legation in Beijing or someone from the military sent to China in 1900 to suppress the Uprising.
