Abstract

在本次主题演讲中,何永生教授解释了港口城市如何在印度洋区域的竞争中占据了主动优势,并成为全球化的标志。这些城市位于中国和欧洲之间,在五百年间彼此争夺世界贸易的流量。近几十年来,其中的佼佼者例如新加坡和迪拜已成功将自己打造为海空联运物流与新的全球供应链网络的枢纽。其他类似的城市还有吉达、亚丁、摩卡、吉布提、苏拉特、卡利卡特、孟买、马六甲、亚齐、廖内,几个世纪以来它们一直作为海港要道,其中一些正将自己重新定位为当今和未来的竞争者。这些城市始终保持着警醒,不轻易把繁荣或衰落视为理所当然。不论是长期稳定的常量或是最新的转型,究竟是怎样的动力因素在塑造并且不断改变这些港口城市呢?

Re-enacting an imagined lost homeland of Champa: Migration, Pilgrimage and Ritual in the South China Sea

Re-enacting an imagined lost homeland of Champa: Migration, Pilgrimage and Ritual in the South China Sea

地点: 1100教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 11月14日,2019
时间: 12:30 - 14:00 CST

The destruction of the Cham cities of Indrapura (982) and Vijaya (1471) constituted decisive Đại Viêt victories against Champa but it was not until 1832 that the last Cham territory of Panduranga was formally incorporated by the Nguyễn dynasty into Vietnam’s territory. This article elaborates on present-day reverberations of these three significant historical events in the entangled Việt-Cham history. Rather than providing a historical interpretation of these turning-point events linked to particular dates, I offer an ethnographically informed analysis of lasting effects that these historical moments had in different localities and on various categories of people. Specifically, the article zooms in on two Cham communities spread across the South China Sea – one located in the old territory of Panduranga (Vietnam), the other – living in exile – in Hainan (China). By introducing two different but overlapping Cham mythico-histories narrated in those communities, the study shows that the absence of an actual territory of Champa incited people to take different routes in reproducing the bonds that stand for their homeland, and ultimately for their redemption. Building on Liisa Malkki’s analytical framework in her study of displacement and exile, the article argues that for Cham people in Vietnam redemption was a transcendental act of recovering lost co-ethnic communities dispersed in the region, while for those in Hainan redemption was sought in enacting Islamic piety and in a combined, palimpsestic ethnic-religious homeland that included Champa as a place of origin but embraced China as the new homeland.

Edyta Roszko is a Senior Researcher at the Chr. Michelsen Institute in Bergen, Norway, where she develops a new research direction on oceans. After her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology / Martin Luther University (Halle, Germany – 2011) which focused on religion and politics in Vietnam, she did ethnographic research among Chinese and Vietnamese fishing communities in the common maritime space of the South China Sea. Bridging different historical periods and countries, the question of mobility, migration and connectivity of fishers compelled her to historicize fishing communities and to work beyond the nation-state and area studies frame. Edyta’s newly awarded European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant project TransOcean at Chr. Michelsen Institute expands her geographic field beyond Vietnam and China to include other global regions in Oceania and West and East Africa.

Edyta’s scholarly articles have appeared in Cross-Currents: East Asian history and Culture Review, Nations and Nationalism 和 Journal of Contemporary Ethnography and other journalsHer monograph Fishers, Monks and Cadres: Navigating State and Religious Authorities along Central Vietnam’s South China Sea Coast is forthcoming with NIAS Press (Copenhagen).

Introduction and moderation of the Q&A by ​Tzu-hui Celina Hung, Assistant Professor of Literature at NYU Shanghai​.

全球现代主义与印度先锋派艺术家(1922年至1947年)

全球现代主义与印度先锋派艺术家(1922年至1947年)

Partha Mitter

地点: 310教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 10月28日,2019
时间: 17:30 - 19:00 CST

本次讲座将讲述印度艺术家与他们遭遇全球现代主义的故事。回顾艺术史,其中心地带(西方)与边缘地带(其他地区)存在严重不平衡,致使非西方艺术家被忽视。这种现象反映了西方殖民主义的复杂语境,以及把非西方现代艺术仅作为西方现代主义附属品的趋势。讲者将探讨的三位重要艺术家——Amrita Sher-Gil、Rabindranath Tagore与Jamini Roy——展现出惊人的原创性与想象力,但是他们在西方鲜为人知。讲者认为,这并不是因为他们的艺术品质本身,而是因为他们身处于全球现代主义历史的边缘地区。本次讲座中,讲者希望矫正此类地区间的不平衡,包括中国地区。

Partha Mitter ,作家、艺术与文化历史学家,主要研究方向为西方与现代主义对印度艺术的接受、印度艺术与身份认同,以及全球现代主义。Mitter教授早年于伦敦大学学习历史,并于1970年获得博士学位,导师为著名美术史家恩斯特·贡布里希(E. H. Gombrich)。1968年至1969年为剑桥大学丘吉尔学院初级研究员,1970年至1974年为剑桥大学卡莱尔学院研究员。1974年起加入萨塞克斯大学成为印度史讲师,后任艺术史教授,并于2002年退休。

其出版专著包括 Much Maligned Monsters: History of European Reactions to Indian Art (1977年牛津克拉伦登出版社;1992年芝加哥大学出版社;2013年牛津大学出版社,新德里); Art and Nationalism in Colonial India 1850-1922: Occidental Orientations (1994年芝加哥大学出版社); Indian Art, Oxford Art History Series (2002年牛津大学出版社,牛津); The Triumph of Modernism: India’s Artists and the Avant-Garde – 1922-1947 (2007年Reaktion Books出版社,伦敦;2007年牛津大学出版社,新德里)。

本次活动主持为 Duane Corpis,上海纽约大学综合人文学科负责人、历史学副教授。

本次活动由上海纽约大学环球亚洲研究中心、综合人文学科、教务长办公室和文理学部主任办公室合办。

舞蹈表演 | 卡塔克舞

舞蹈表演 | 卡塔克舞

地点: 808教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 10月21日,2019
时间: 17:30 - 19:00 CST

Dancer and choreographer, Deepti Gupta, visits NYU Shanghai for an enlightening Kathak performance. Kathak is one of the eight forms of Indian classical dances, originated from Uttar Pradesh, India. This dance form traces its origins to the nomadic bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathaks, or storytellers. Deepti Gupta is visiting IMA to explore how contemporary technologies might connect with this traditional art-form. Join us in room 808 for a fascinating and visually engaging performance.

Building bridges between India and Canada, Deepti Gupta is a dancer and choreographer of the elegant Kathak style of Indian dance. A disciple of Sri Munna Lal Shukla, renowned guru of the Lucknow Gharana (lineage), she has recently been training and working under the guidance of Kathak legend Pundit Birju Maharaj.

Deepti holds an MA in Dance from York University, Toronto and is a noted scholar, teacher and choreographer both in Canada and in India. Her creative work has been recognized by many awards including a Chalmers Award, National Arts Centre commissions and a choreographic residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.

Deepti’s choreographic work is at the cutting edge of contemporary South Asian dance and she has collaborated with a diverse range of international musicians, designers, and new media artists. Her work has been presented by Canada’s National Arts Centre, National Gallery of Canada, the Canada Dance Festival, Kalanidhi Fine Arts, Raga Mala of Canada, Banff Centre for the Arts, Tangente, Harbourfront Centre. Her work has also been presented internationally by Danspace Project & DTW, New York; Anila Sinha Foundation, International House, Chicago; Vasantotsav, Delhi; and the Panchatatva Festival Mumbai among others.

Deepti’s creations have been critically acclaimed in the New York Times, the Village Voice and Dance Connection Magazine. A relentless experimentalist with a variety of theatrical interests, she received the Dora Mavor Moore award for best costume design. She has worked extensively in Indian theatre as an actor, dramaturge and script writer. Deepti was recently a lecurer in the Aesthetics and Theory of Kathak at Kathak Kendra, National Institute of Kathak, New Delhi India.

Her recent works:

  • Silk Road Melody – The performance celebrates the great literary and philosophical legacy created by Sufi poets whose message of universal love united vast regions along the famous trade routes from Persia to China.
  • The Lion’s Roar – A contemporary and Kathak movement exploration. The Lion’s Roar is based upon ‘The Sutra of the Lion’s Roar of Queen Srimala’, a Buddhist text written by Queen Srimala of the Kosala dynasty in the third century BC in central India.
  • Snowangels – A 35-minute ensemble choreography that explores the sacred geometry of snow. It is inspired by the visual grandeur and sensuality of the snowscapes painted by Canadian Lauren Harris.

本次活动主持为 Anna Greenspan, Assistant Professor of Contemporary Global Media, IMA.

对比过去:早期中国与世界

对比过去:早期中国与世界

地点: 1505教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 10月16日,2019
时间: 17:30 - 19:00 CST

当我们论及“早期中国”的时候,具体是在谈论那些话题呢?当人们谈到古代中国的时候,他们会想到些什么呢?答案很有可能是伟大的思想家,例如孔子和孟子,或者是著名的军事家孙子。我们也有可能会想起西安的兵马俑,或者庄周梦蝶的故事。这些“早期中国”标志性的名人事物仅仅是一小部分,更多的是鲜为人知的故事。早期中国也是活人祭祀、甲骨占卜、受命于天和乌托邦思想(例如大同思想)盛行的时期。历代学者致力于理解这个对于我们来说截然不同的时期,并将它展现于世界。如今,早期中国不仅仅是全球史的一部分,与古希腊和罗马帝国相提并论,哈佛大学的早期中国思想课程更有多达700名学生。早期中国的魅力何在?我们该如何学习研究它?本次活动邀请早期中国学领域的著名学者分享他们的学术经验,并探讨如何在全球呈现这一热门学术研究领域。

Michael Nylan (戴梅可),1983年于普林斯顿大学获得东亚学博士学位,现为加州大学伯克利分校历史系教授。戴梅可教授在美国布尔茅尔学院历史系开始教学生涯,同时也教授城市发展与结构项目,以及政治学。其在与亚里士多德专家Steven Salkever共同授课的过程中开始接触早期政治哲学。作为该校东亚学唯一女性教员,戴梅可教授在任教十余年后,于2001年加入加州大学伯克利分校历史系,与美国最杰出的中国学学者共事,并任研究生导师,学生遍布全球各地。戴梅可教授著作主要涵盖三大学术领域:早期中国学(约为公元前300年至公元后300年)、早期中国哲学,以及中国艺术与建筑。戴梅可教授受其老师(Paul Serruys, Michael Loewe, Nathan Sivin, Herbert Fingarette, and Henry Rosemont, Jr.)影响,始终对历史的合理运用和不合理运用保有兴趣。其涉及领域还包括现代史和共同利益政治学。其翻译和研究成果获奖颇多。她目前的两个项目研究分别是与陕西师范大学何如月教授合作重现汉代 《尚书》 ,以及与Suzanne Saïd教授合作的,名为 “四位历史学之父” 的项目,旨在比较古希腊历史学家希罗多德、修西得底斯、西汉史学家司马迁与东汉历史学家班固。

Michael Puett (普鸣),哈佛大学Walter C. Klein中国历史学教授,研究方向纵观历史、哲学、人类学和宗教,致力于开拓中国学研究的历史框架和比较框架。已出版著作有 The Ambivalence of Creation: Debates Concerning Innovation and Artifice in Early China (斯坦福大学出版社,2001年)、 To Become a God: Cosmology, Sacrifice, and Self-Divinization in Early China (哈佛大学亚洲中心,2002年),以及 Ritual and its Consequences: An Essay on the Limits of Sincerity (牛津大学出版社,2008年,Adam Seligman、 Robert Weller和Bennett Simon合著)。  

Trenton Wilson,加州大学伯克利分校的博士候选人,研究方向为中国早期的思想和政治历史,重点关注秦、汉和魏晋时期,博士论文题为“Empire of Luck: Trust and Suspicion in China’s Early Empires, 221 BCE-317 CE”。在就读于加州大学伯克利分校之前,Trenton在北京大学获得中国哲学硕士学位。

本次活动主持为 赵璐,上海纽约大学全球中国学助理教授。

Indian Ocean Port Cities and their Hinterlands

Indian Ocean Port Cities and their Hinterlands

地点: 1504教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 9月26日,2019 - 9月27日,2019

Overview

During the past decade there has been a considerable increase in literature documenting the growth of Indian Ocean port cities. Famously described as the Brides of Sea, port cities such as Cape Town, Shanghai, Karachi, Bombay (Mumbai), Madras (Chennai), Calcutta, Rangoon, Singapore, and Jakarta were considered the bridgeheads for the establishment of European dominance. This workshop has three significant aims. Firstly it will focus on the mobile and multifaceted connections, networks and routes of exchange that constitute the life worlds of port cities and beyond them, into their immediate hinterlands or even more distant localities. Secondly it will not only highlight the interconnected oceanic histories, networks and flows but also examine the uneasy relationships between port cities and the coast, the boundaries between land and sea, the relationship between the port and hinterland and how they were shaped by labour, infrastructure and property. Thirdly the workshop will also explore the legal, regulatory and political structures put in place to govern the port cities. This includes both the institutions and technologies of rule, policing and racial segregation of populations, as well as the different levels of political mediation, legal manoeuvring and petitioning undertaken by a cross section of society.

Keynote Address | Three Eras of Asian Migration: Pleistocene, Holocene, and Anthropocene

Keynote Address | Three Eras of Asian Migration: Pleistocene, Holocene, and Anthropocene

Patrick Manning

地点: 1504教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 4月18日,2019
时间: 17:30 - 19:00 CST

The four sections of this 40-minute talk are to review Asian migration and identify issues for research. First, it traces early migrations, resettlement, and agriculture in the Pleistocene (plus early Holocene) era of climate instability, up to 2000 BCE. Second, it chronicles migrations in the late Holocene era of climate stability, the era of Asian empires and expansion of societies up to 1800 CE. Third, it addresses the return to climate instability in the Anthropocene (since 1800), a time of economic divergence, population growth, and urbanization. The concluding section emphasizes the varying effects of migration in five major Asian regions, to open discussion on the possibilities for relevant and feasible research projects.

 

Patrick Manning is Andrew W. Mellon Professor of World History, Emeritus, at the University of Pittsburgh, where he was Director of the World History Center (2008–2015).

The 2nd CGA & GPS Young Scholars Symposium on “Asia and the World”

The 2nd CGA & GPS Young Scholars Symposium on “Asia and the World”

地点: 1505教室,上海纽约大学
日期: 4月18-19,2019

– Overview

This second annual symposium brings together undergraduates and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral fellows researching at NYU Shanghai, whose work examines and expands the ever-changing intellectual boundaries of academic scholarship on China, Asia and the broader world. Inaugurating this two-day event, Patrick Manning (Professor Emeritus of History, University of Pittsburgh) will deliver a special keynote address on “Three Eras of Asian Migration: Pleistocene, Holocene, and Anthropocene.” The research of these young scholars represents some of the newest and most dynamic directions in the fields of anthropology, art history, history, literature and film studies.

– Keynote Address

Title: “Three Eras of Asian Migration: Pleistocene, Holocene, and Anthropocene“

讲者: Patrick Manning | Andrew W. Mellon Professor of World History, Emeritus, University of Pittsburgh

Date & Time: Thursday, April 18, 2019  | 17:30-19:00

地点: Room 1504, NYU Shanghai

The four sections of this 40-minute talk are to review Asian migration and identify issues for research. First, it traces early migrations, resettlement, and agriculture in the Pleistocene (plus early Holocene) era of climate instability, up to 2000 BCE. Second, it chronicles migrations in the late Holocene era of climate stability, the era of Asian empires and expansion of societies up to 1800 CE. Third, it addresses the return to climate instability in the Anthropocene (since 1800), a time of economic divergence, population growth, and urbanization. The concluding section emphasizes the varying effects of migration in five major Asian regions, to open discussion on the possibilities for relevant and feasible research projects.

In an unprecedented and largely understudied episode of China’s participation in South-South cultural exchange, Chinese writers sought Indian literature and religious thought in the hopes of learning how literary expression mediates between man and universe to create a palpable change in the world. A chapter, entitled “Pan-Asian Poetics: Tagore and the Interpersonal in May 4th New Poetry” has been published in the Journal of Asian Studies. Also forthcoming is her essay entitled “China-India Myths in Xu Dishan’s Goddess of Supreme Essence.”

Jasnea Sarma

Jasnea Sarma is a PhD candidate in Asian Studies and Political Geography at the National University of Singapore(NUS). Her dissertation titled “Seeing From the Periphery: Small People, Big Resource, and the Lines in Between”  uses ethnography, oral histories and GIS cartography in several border sites between India, China and Myanmar to critically explore frontier encounters, hidden histories, spatial transformations and capitalist accumulation in sites which are both traditional border-frontiers (remote/ ethnically conflicted /refugee and humanitarian refuge zones, illicit economies, and militarization), but also evolving ‘resource frontiers’ (geo-politically and geo-economically strategic for states and capitalist extraction). In this work, she documents and narrates these transformations through ‘remote’ or unrepresented borderland voices from below, attempting to them into dialogue with critical border theories in political geography and area studies. Her dissertation critiques and furthers approaches to studying Zomia, and ‘shatter zones’ as places of refuge and escape. She has conducted long-term ethnographic fieldwork in China (Yunnan), Myanmar (Shan, Kachin) and Northeast India (Mizoram) between borders. Jasnea is part of a writing collective that explores feminist research methods in South East Asia, also collaborating with polgeonow.com for mapping projects.
