Diasporas and Interculturalism in Asian Performing Arts: Translating Traditions

Diasporas and Interculturalism in Asian Performing Arts: Translating Traditions (Routledgecurzon–Iias Asian Studies Series) by Hae-kyung Um
Routledge; 1 edition | January 12, 2005 | English | ISBN: 070071586X | 256 pages | PDF | 2 MB

In an age of globalization, performance is increasingly drawn from intercultural creativity and located in multicultural settings. This volume is the first to focus on the performing arts of Asian diasporas in the context of modernity and multiculturalism. The essays locate the contemporary performing arts as a discursive field in which the boundaries between tradition and translation, and authenticity and hybridity are redefined and negotiated to create a multitude of meaning and aesthetics in global and local contexts.
Adam Frank, "Taijiquan and the Search for the Little Old Chinese Man: Understanding Identity through Martial Arts" (repost)

Adam Frank, "Taijiquan and the Search for the Little Old Chinese Man: Understanding Identity through Martial Arts"
Publisher: Macmillan | 2006 | ISBN: 1403968284 | English | PDF | 336 pages | 3.11 Mb

The first book-length ethnography of a Chinese martial arts association, the book tackles the general question of how human beings form viewpoints of themselves and others through the practice of an art–in this case, the art of taijiquan (a.k.a. “tai chi”). The first half of the book focuses on the author’s own experience of studying taijiquan with teachers in the People’s Republic of China and the United States, then expands the discussion to include taijiquan as national symbol, taijiquan in the context of urban China, and the globalization of “Chineseness” through taijiquan.
