Abstract: Chinese scholars wrote animals into a broad spectrum of text genres: animals play a role in agricultural treatises and cookbooks, are part of erudite encyclopaedic knowledge, provide historical or moral metaphors and poetical imagery. There moreover exist numerous monographs exclusively dedicated to animals, mostly assigned to the bibliographical category of “treatises and lists” resp. 'pulu'. Pulu, which are the focus of the paper, deal either with a specific species, such as quails or cats, with groups of species, such as insects or birds, or with all animals. Three basic styles of discourse are identifiable: the raising, care, and evaluation trope, the naming and intellectual conquest trope, and the allegorical, historical and associative trope. These tropes often pair certain animals and specific textual structures.
The paper discusses the writing and consumption of these texts as one form of praxeological relation of scholars and animals: animals encountered, heard or read about were transformed into text and in turn these ‘text-animals’ inhabited the scholarly discourse and imagination and influenced the perception of that animal. Recreated in a written down, named and defined form, animals became manageable and accessible and a perfect fit for further scholarly purposes. When other textual instances of a specific animal or its counterpart in the physical world were encountered, the relationship often had to be newly negotiated and new versions of the animal were concocted. Examples from books on the breeding of goldfish and from the Jianwu, an animal book of a well-travelled 16th-century official, will serve as showcases.

Abstract: During the last decade, technology use among adolescents has increased dramatically. The rise of social relationships mediated by technology and the emergence of cyberbullying among adolescents raises questions about both the content and the context of electronic communications. In this research, we use a unique dataset containing text messages sent and received by middle-schoolers and examine the variety of types of topics that these students use in their electronic communications as they interact with texting partners. As part of our topic modeling, we seek to identify constructs associated with interpersonal conflict. Finally, we examine associations among the topics we uncover, with specific attention to links to interpersonal conflict.
