Abstract: In 1684, after crushing the revolt of the three feudatories and consolidating Manchu rule in China, Emperor Kangxi launched his first southern inspection tour. In Suzhou, he took the earliest opportunity to indulge himself in a revelry of Kunqu performance, which included a play later known for the use of Wu dialect—the local language(s) primarily used in Jiangnan in the Ming and Qing periods as well as the alleged linguistic foundation of Kunqu. The emperor’s infatuation with the southern drama and the fact that it was captured in a contemporary Ming sympathizer’s diary can be historically and politically suggestive. This paper, however, focuses on the dual indexicality of Kunqu revealed here as an intrinsically connected spatiotemporal formation. Kunqu, on the historical line, is a highly refined, artistic representation of the classic and entertaining cultural inheritance passed down from the late Ming, while in the geopolitical dimension, it bears an inseparable philological connection to Jiangnan, the thorny area that once held the most persistent resistance to the Manchu conquest. This paper demonstrates how Kunqu offers a spatiotemporal frame, in which the practice of Wu dialect can be examined not only through temporal trajectory, but also with a focus on locality and spatiality. Through investigating the practice of Wu dialect in Kunqu composition and vocalization from Late Ming to Late Qing, the article intends to gain an insight into the multilingual ecology in early modern China and in further to reflect on the prevailing time-dominant narrative on the history of Chinese languages and literature.

"Battle for Russian Priorities Revisited: the Late 1940s Reform of Soviet School Curricula and Its Late Effects" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1263073_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The late 1940s early 1950s in the Soviet Union was a period of cardinal reviewing and transformation of curricula in the sciences and humanities. According to the new ideological demands, those curricula had to reflect the idea of “Russian priorities”, backwardness, and the reactionary nature of Western science and culture. The consequences of this ideological turn are present in contemporary Russian education. Despite many efforts undertaken in the 1960s, 1990s and 2000s, the Russian school curriculum continues to work for the purposes of the anti-cosmopolitan campaign, constantly implanting ideas of national exceptionalism and isolationism.

Abstract: Late lustration policies look different and are designed to do different things than early lustration policies. The laws have expanded the size, scope, duration and transparency measures associated with vetting practices. They target larger numbers of individuals for screening, and different types of positions. While early lustration measures focused on politicians, late lustration policies expanded to include members of the clergy, journalists, academics, teachers and principals, business leaders, and others in “positions of public trust.” In some cases this has meant targeting private sector positions that work closely with the public sector. This reflects a substantial change in the purpose of lustration. It has been argued that the potential benefits of lustration laws would be undermined by late lustration. However, more than 15 years after the 1989 revolutions both Poland and Romania have embarked on new or renewed lustration policies. This paper argues that rather than undermining the trustworthiness of public institutions, late lustration in these cases helps to break cycles of distrust. Late lustration is targeted at the continued privileging of former communist elites across academic, business, political and media industries. The policies have become linked to anti-corruption programs and are aimed at larger, pervasive cycles of distrust plaguing the post-communist transitions.
