1. Zhang, Enhua. "The Totality of Critique: A Total Analysis of The Life of Wu Xun" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies - Annual Conference, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Toronto, Canada, <Not Available>. 2019-07-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1188985_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: On May 20, 1951, an anonymous critique of The Life of Wu Xun (Wu Xun Zhuan, dir. Sun Yu, 1950) by Mao Zedong sparked the first nationwide criticism in literature and arts in the People’s Republic of China. The inquiry of this essay starts with a fundamental question: why did Mao Zedong mobilize a campaign against The Life of Wu Xun, a film about a recognized folk hero who devoted his whole life and wealth to the cause of free education, especially when the filmmakers had tried to shape the hero to conform to the thought of the newly founded regime? This essay attempts to answer these questions through three channels. First, revisiting the historical assessment of Wu Xun from the late Qing dynasty to the republican era shows the values Wu Xun embodies and is made to embody in the process of his apotheosis. Second, an analysis of the film demonstrates the extent to which The Life of Wu Xun conforms to and deviates from ideological thought in the new China. Third, a survey of the massive criticism of the film and a series of corrective efforts reveals that this campaign heralded the totality of critique, which culminated in the Cultural Revolution: the one and only one mode in criticism, not allowing for any alternative opinion. As a dominant discourse, it is suppressive, overpowering, and homogenizing. It modifies any heterogeneous element to conform it to the only one legitimate mode of thinking.

Abstract: How well do the sibling correlations reflect the family background? This is studied by analyzing the life course variation of sibling correlations using Finnish register data, including information on 57,050 children born 1956-1970. Education as levels and years and occupational status as EGP-classes and ISEI scores of the siblings are measured two times between the ages of 20-29, 25-34, 30-39 and 35-44 during the period 1970-2005. The data on children are matched with the education and class of the parents when children were 10-14 years old. According to the results the variation at both family and individual level increases as the siblings grow older but the correlations do not change much. The correlations are highest, around 0.5, when education is measured as levels; it remains at the level of 0.3 in the case of others. However, the proportion of the sibling correlation explained by the observed parental characteristics is about the same according to each type of status measurement. The results suggest controlling observed parental characteristics in order to estimate the family background effect even when applying sibling correlations. Despite the stability over the life course the sibling correlations may vary considerably according to the type of status measurement applied.

Abstract: That irregular forces frequently and systematically breach IHL is a well documented fact. Nevertheless, compliance with IHL also appears to deteriorate among regular (western) forces. They seem to have taken on new roles and adapted their doctrine to the
