Tran­scul­tur­al Human­i­ties in South Asia: Crit­i­cal Essays on Lit­er­a­ture and Cul­ture
BuchcoverThis vol­ume looks at the impli­ca­tions of tran­scul­tur­al human­i­ties in South Asia, which is becom­ing a cru­cial area of research with­in lit­er­ary and cul­tur­al stud­ies. The vol­ume also explores var­i­ous com­plex crit­i­cal dimen­sions of tran­scul­tur­a­tion, its inde­ter­mi­nate peri­odi­s­a­tion, its tem­po­ral and spa­tial non­lin­ear­i­ty, its ter­ri­to­ri­al­i­ty and inter­sec­tion­al­i­ty.
Draw­ing on con­trib­u­tors from around the globe, the entries look at lit­er­a­ture and poet­ics, the­o­ry and prax­is, bor­ders and nations, pol­i­tics, Par­ti­tion, gen­der and sex­u­al­i­ty, the envi­ron­ment, rep­re­sen­ta­tions in art and ped­a­gogy and the tran­scul­tur­al class­room. Using key exam­ples and case stud­ies, the con­trib­u­tors look at cur­rent devel­op­ments in tran­scul­tur­al and transna­tion­al stand­points and their pos­si­ble edu­ca­tion­al out­comes. A broad and com­pre­hen­sive col­lec­tion, as it also speaks about the val­ue of the human­i­ties and the sig­nif­i­cance of South Asian con­texts, Tran­scul­tur­al Human­i­ties in South Asia will be of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to those work­ing on post­colo­nial stud­ies, lit­er­ary stud­ies, Asian stud­ies and more.

Chi­nese Cul­ture: Its Human­i­ty And Moder­ni­ty
BuchcoverUnder­stand­ing Chi­na and the Chi­nese is of para­mount impor­tance in today’s world. With China’s rapid eco­nom­ic growth and increas­ing polit­i­cal influ­ence, there has been sig­nif­i­cant inter­est in learn­ing the Chi­nese lan­guage around the world. While we con­stant­ly hear about Chi­na in polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic terms, we rarely come across a book that explains what Chi­nese cul­ture or a Chi­nese per­son is like today.
This book offers a crit­i­cal overview of Chi­nese cul­ture intend­ed for col­lege stu­dents as well as for gen­er­al read­ers inter­est­ed in the top­ic. While ‚Chi­nese cul­ture‘ is often deployed in terms of kung fu, Con­fu­cius or cal­lig­ra­phy, this book refers to the tra­di­tion­al and mod­ern expe­ri­ences out of which con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese peo­ple have grown. Inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned schol­ar in Chi­na Stud­ies, Pro­fes­sor Qian Suo­qiao invites read­ers to join him on an excit­ing intel­lec­tu­al jour­ney to crit­i­cal­ly explore impor­tant issues includ­ing his­to­ry, lan­guage, gov­ern­men­tal­i­ty, self-cul­ti­va­tion, aes­thet­ics of life, nation­al­ism, cos­mopoli­tanism, com­mu­nism, the rise of Chi­na and her soft pow­er which con­tribute to the for­ma­tion of what we call ‚Chi­nese‘.
