Pastiche // 论“文化侵略“

我最近关注王立新教授(北京大学历史系的年轻教授)的创造品。 为什么? 第一,每个北大历史系教授的文章有介质,第二,那人是我的老同行 , 我在北京的时候给我好多的厚意帮忙,第三 (贺岁重要从现在政治方面的来看),他的研究很有用为了了解中国政府和一分部的这时分子对美国,对谷歌事变的立场和态度。 现在北大的历史系网站有病,但我碰到这边照片。。。印象 在他的知道下,读者能明白什么?能学习西方来得“文化帝国主义“! 看看他的文章:“‘文化侵略’与’文化帝国主义’:美国传教士在华活动两种评价范式辨析”,《历史研究》2002年第3期。 如果能说:基本上,19世纪的西方人来中国的宗教者有个目标:第一,获得幽灵,准备末日,第二,成为医院和学校,第三,为在中国的外国人的宗教需要, 很小属于艺术家,科学家,哲学家 — 他们都后点儿来华呢!  所以能说这个“帝国主义“ 的精神和欧洲,美国宗教的精神是混得,也浑看。。。现在的世界情况当人十分变了,但是西方人的最基础的想法对中国变还是不变?   以一变应万变!但是这谷歌代表什么新的问题,条件,能源,看法。。。摩登人就是崇拜高科技,电脑,等的高级东西。。。这个精神是从梁启超等作家来的,包括五四新文化运动来的。。。我觉得现代的人类崇拜高科技或者崇拜圣经。。。和谷歌呢? 我发现现代的中国爱国主义精神,民族主义精神过于若干的问题是比较快起来,感动, 和网络关系当然对这个趋势更快。  (梦想:五四学生和秋瑾,丁玲等作者有手机和Twitter…那对他们的Schaffensvernunftigkeit (创作性)什么影响?  (啊,现在真浪费时间。。。生活真的怎么无聊呢?不一定! 快去加拿大,家伙! 找的找的找地多地西雅图市的新地方和人物,进一步到大提琴技术的边区,(用大声根一个大风的铜目标)唱德文浪漫歌曲,认识那个谁的狂妄和太有意思艺术家,讨论讨论滔滔轮轮根留学生,碰到无家可归的老美,老匪在唐人街的黑黑压压的交通口,睡觉在一个小船内,天天希望看到大白山,我们西北的长白山,善。。。 哇–从梦想回来,大哥! 行了行了行了; 我的目的已经到了:后来再份哲。。。 For English readers, basically above I’m reflecting in the most amateurish fashion possible on the possible continuities between what Chinese scholars call “cultural invasion” of China in the 19th century by Western missionaries and the current case of Google.  … Continue reading Pastiche // 论“文化侵略“

US-China: Le Grand Refroidissement

Precisely one year ago, Le Monde asked in an uncharacteristically blaring headline: “US-Chine: Le Grande Refroidissement? [US-China: The Great Re-Freeze?]” Well, today that article appears to be rather prescient. From Taiwan to Google to the Dalai Lama to pending and present trade disputes, there is more than enough acrimony to go around. Perhaps this means that French journalism and commentary about East Asia generally, and … Continue reading US-China: Le Grand Refroidissement

US-China Scuffles

An outbreak of Korea-related materials have the present author slightly detained at the moment, but one can’t help but notice the sharp deterioration of public rhetoric in the US-China relationship. Shen Dingli, one of China’s most prominent establishment intellectuals, has a large new editorial in the Global Times (in Chinese) on the Google issue, confronting the freedom of information issue head-on. (Big surprise: national security … Continue reading US-China Scuffles

A Few Thoughts on the Google Imbroligio

Not being Rebecca MacKinnon has its disadvantages.  Yet, in spite of having only the most meager of backgrounds as a paid journalist and not being the most quoted China-internet specialist in the Occident, I have a few views on the subject that have been brewing for a few days.  Thus, when you’re done reading MacKinnon’s spot-on essay about how Hillary Clinton ought not to play … Continue reading A Few Thoughts on the Google Imbroligio

Mini-Xinhua

UPDATE: Xinhua all of a sudden today announces it is revamping its English-language web service as “part of its effort to follow the latest trend of Internet development and help domestic and overseas netizens learn more about China.”   And Xinhua removed the original editorial by Liu Si [now a dead link] on the Google issue which I critiqued below and which is now linked via … Continue reading Mini-Xinhua

10,000 Chinese Netizens Know Curtis Melvin, Google Earth North Korea

Amid the obligatory fury at the Chinese government for restricting the flow of information into China, it’s worth noting that articles like this one are increasing in prevalence: a Tianya translation of a CNN article about Andrei Lankov, Curtis Melvin, and the wonders of mapping North Korean gulags on Google Earth. According to statistics the article has been read over 10,000 times; let’s hope the … Continue reading 10,000 Chinese Netizens Know Curtis Melvin, Google Earth North Korea

中国的网络自由:关于谷歌,朝鲜观点

中国和世界网民正在讨论“谷歌考虑退出中国市场事件“, 揭出好多问题 — 大火墙怎么办呢? 还有一个不少的问题: 事件后,中美要关系从什么基础继续? 美国政府,希拉里和欧巴马总统怎么可能不公开批评中国? 当然本事对中美,中欧政治和经济关系有影响,但是事件必须对中国全社会的思想自由,消息自由,说话自由有更更重重的重要性. 我因该承认这个热风讨论 (我也在这里多少册承认了中国大学生的反日情绪和纪念历史讨论阿?)– 不承认的话,我能不能在我们时代中? (把自己现代化了,家伙!本博客的内容基本上没意思的,但是博客介值就为了我和伟大祖国[砸]地现代化,尤其我们美国年轻学者不可能走后面! 没有率领性,就没有认真生活。) 但是在全大规模的中国网络中,谷歌是一个小部分。今天我想试试另外个方面 — 中国网民的对朝鲜博客和讨论自由? 对我来讲,中国的讨论朝鲜政策的网站比较多,最好Hexun.com 宣布的, 见: 文革时期黑龙江朝鲜归侨境遇资料几则 朝鲜新年三报共同社论宣传画三帧【组图】 [有点儿可笑] 另外的是这个把西媒体的新闻报告翻译: google退出中国的真正原因 In English: basically I’m bloviating on the Google issue, and then turning to see if Chinese have freedom of information on North Korea, and then recommending a ridiculously well-documented PRC blog on North Korea which offers stuff you’ve never heard of, … Continue reading 中国的网络自由:关于谷歌,朝鲜观点
