EastAsiaNet 10th Anniversary Research Workshop

Sean Golden recently spoke twice at the EastAsiaNet 10th Anniversary Research Workshop that was held at the University of Coimbra in Portuigal from 26-28 May 2016, dedicated to the New Silk Road in the Context of East Asian Relations and Wider International Implications.

Re-Imagining 'Asia' and 'Europe' along the New Silk Road
Abstract

Brussels continues to look more toward Boston than Beijing. As Frederick John Teggart demonstrated in 1939 in his book Rome and China: A Study of Correlations in Historical Events, major developments in the history of the Roman Empire were preceded and provoked by major developments in the history of the Chinese Empire. As China repelled wave after wave of Central Asian tribes attacking the East, these tribes turned West and successively displaced still more tribes closer and closer to Europe. The Xiongnu lead to the Huns. Yet “European” history still ignores the implications of Teggart’s study and continues to take Europe to be the country in the middle of it all. This Eurocentrism affects countries that span Eurasia, like Russia, and countries that clearly belong to Central or even South Asia, like Iran. The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and the One Belt, One Road initiative will eventually have as great an impact on Europe’s future as developments in the Chinese Empire had on Europe’s past. What obsolete paradigms prevent analysts and planners from detecting or recognising the consequences of China’s mid-to-long term Eurasian development strategy? And what new paradigms might open their minds? What tools do we need to assess the New Silk Road strategy?

Las Relaciones Exteriores de China: Nuevos retos e inestabilidad financiera

El CEI International Affairs en colaboración con el Instituto Confucio de Barcelona y la Obra Social "la Caixa", organizaron el 3 de diciembre de 2015 la Jornada “Las relaciones exteriores de China: Nuevos retos e inestabilidad financiera"

Es un hecho aceptado universalmente que la inserción de China en la economía planetaria, ocurrida en los últimos treinta años está influyendo en los cambiantes vuelcos que acontecen en las relaciones económicas internacionales.
A la vez, todo sugiere que, al entrar el país en la sociedad globalizada, con éxitos evidentes está enfrentando los desafíos de absorber el acervo técnico-cultural-institucional mundial, sin perder la ancestral fisonomía de su muy especial cultura.
Un examen de la estrategia diplomática y de las relaciones internacionales de China reclama, antes de nada, una aclaración básica de la situación del país respondiendo a preguntas como ¿qué tipo de país es China ahora y cómo será en el futuro? o ¿cuál es la fortaleza económica, militar y política de China? La estrategia diplomática de China y su política exterior están basadas en las realidades del país.
Los miembros del grup de investigación Inter-Asia Artur Colom y Sean Golden hablaron sobre "La presencia de China en América Latina y África".

Inaugural Conference of the International Yeats Society

Sean Golden, member of the Inter-Asia research group, spoke at the 1st annual conference of the International Yeats Society, A Writer Young and Old: Yeats at 150, at the University of Limerick Ireland, 15-18/10/2015, on the topic of:

The Ghost of Fenollosa in the Wings of the Abbey

 Abstract


Ernest Fenollosa’s unpublished manuscripts on Noh theatre influenced W.B. Yeats explicitly in 1913. Prior to that, Fenollosa’s publications on Chinese and Japanese art, and his theories of design, also influenced the works of Yeats. Correspondence among Yeats, Frank Fay, J.M. Synge and Lady Gregory in November 1904 regarding tree wings for the Abbey Theatre finds Yeats searching for an effect from Japanese prints he was researching at the British Museum and he confides in the taste of Pamela Colman Smith, in his own words, the only person who understood what he was seeking. In March 1909 Yeats is discussing Laurence Binyon’s Painting of the Far East, published in 1908, the year that Fenollosa died. Binyon wrote an obituary for Fenollosa in Littell's Living Age, and the Introduction to that book announces forthcoming studies on Chinese and Japanese art that Fenollosa’s widow would publish posthumously, prior to passing his papers on to Ezra Pound. Binyon’s studies draw heavily on Fenollosa’s published work. Pamela Colman Smith collaborated with Jack B. Yeats, and Lily Yeats, as well as W.B. Yeats. She studied design at the Pratt Institute in New York with Arthur Wesley Dow from 1893 to 1897, shortly before becoming involved with the Yeats circle and Edward Gordon Craig’s family. That was when Dow assisted Fenollosa in cataloguing East Asian art in Boston. Dow’s textbook on Composition draws heavily and explicitly on Fenollosa’s theories. The extent to which Fenollosa’s ghost inhabits the wings of the Abbey deserves greater scrutiny.
