In his introduction, editor Charles Laughlin explains his editorial principle: "to map and negotiate" boundaries, and to explore "the intersections of. This may be an approach similar to what Fredric Jameson once called "cognitive mapping.
In the first section, "Rewriting Literary History," five authors tackle the problematic of Chinese literary historiography from rather different perspectives. Engaging ambitiously in contemporary theoretical inquiries and debates, Alexander Des Forges locates a tendency to fetishize "a modernity that is subjunctive, spectral, limited, failed, problematic, or once removed" p. On the other hand, Xiaobin Yang reveals Chinese postmodernity as "a parody of modernity" and a deconstruction of "sociopolitical totality, grand national imagination, and the discourse of rigid historical teleology" p.
Emma Tang brings this quest of "rewriting literary history" to a different frontier-questioning, crossing, and almost literally breaking down the boundaries between modern Chinese literature and the emergent Chinese diasporic literature. Interesting enough, similar to Des Forges' discovery of a lack of presence of "modernity" and the anxiety surrounding this lack in modern Chinese literature, Ferry finds the same degree of despair and anguish among some May Fourth women writers and intellectuals over the fact "that no representative New Woman existed in Chinese literature to emulate" p.
Dooling notices the same "absence-rather than agency-of women in the narratives of Chinese modernity" p. What distinguishes her reading from conventional ones is her sophisticated application of the feminist critique of subjectivity and identity, as shown in this analysis:. Rather than make claims to special knowledge about the "real truth" of feminine nature or seek to uncover an "essential" self buried beneath woman's myriad social guises, what Bai Wei strives to represent is how the female self is constructed in social interactions but also how these constructions can render the self as other to itself.
Electronic waste or "e-waste" is the fastest growing disposal problem in the world. The US alone produces over three million tons of e-waste in a single year. This creates mountains of highly toxic trash. Much of it ends up in China and other parts of the developing world, polluting entire towns, their soil, and water. The chemicals involved in this waste are known to cause among other things cancer, brain developmental damage in children, and birth defects. What can we do to strive toward international environmental and social justice?
