Drawing the dragon : testimonies to the reinvention of China

Tao, Zhijian 1996 (has links)
The accidental, or maybe not so accidental, equation of the Long $ rm lbrack TE rbrack$ with the dragon is a minor, yet in many ways symbolic, incident in Western European reinvention of China. This reinvention can be found in a wide variety of discourses, the authors of which range from Enlightenment philosophes to nineteenth-century political economists, to the recent Derrida, and from the even earlier Sir John Mandeville, Oliver Goldsmith, to Coleridge, to W. S. Landor and De Quincey. It covers all aspects of Chinese culture, including philosophy, religion, government, language, poetry, and folklore. This dissertation argues that the divergent, even contradictory, accounts of China as a culture Other, on the one hand reflect divergent or conflicting domestic agenda and, on the other, converge as products of an inherent epistemological ethnocentrism. As such, they can offer no substantial alternatives to "Orientalism," which is an ideology that functions in a cross-cultural context. However, Edward Said's delineation of Orientalism has the weakness of vacillating between the incompatible notions of "truth" and of discourse. And Dennis Porter's corrective, based on the "generic heterogeneity" within the West's cultural tradition, has a theoretical problem of traversing contextual boundaries. To contribute to the on-going debate, this dissertation proposes a distinction between internal and external perspectives, on the criteria of material, objective, and standard, in the representation of a cultural identity. With each perspective conscious of its own specific values, a cross-cultural textual dialogue may be pursued.

The history of Yiddish theatre in South Africa from the late nineteenth century to 1960

Belling, Veronica 2003 (has links)
Includes bibliographical references. This dissertation sets out to investigate the history of Yiddish theatre in South Africa. Yiddish theatre first emerged in Jassy in Rumania in 1876. However with Czarist persecution and the great Jewish migration from Eastern Europe, the 1880s it had spread to Western Europe, the Americas, and South Africa. This dissertation attempts to answer the question as to why of all Eastern Europe's diasporas, Yiddish theatre at no stage put down permanent roots in South Africa. It aims to prove that the survival of Yiddish theatre was entirely dependent on the survival of the Yiddish language. Thus the fate of Yiddish theatre in South Africa was influenced by the early timing of the formative immigration, between 1890 and 1914, the common origins of the immigrants in Lithuania and White Russia, and their educational and cultural poverty. These factors were reinforced by the exclusive adherence of the Anglo-German Jewish establishment and the vast majority of the immigrants, to Zionism and the Hebrew revival. Yiddish was unequivocally rejected, so that it never featured in the construction of South African Jewish identity. Finally the Quota Act of 1930, reinforced by the Alien's Act of 1937, put a total halt to Eastern European Jewish immigration, the lifeblood of Yiddish theatre.

The Beginning of Time: Vedic and Orphic Theogonies and Poetics

Unknown Date (has links)
This thesis examines the relationship between Vedic and Orphic theogonies, both from a mythological and poetic perspective. In both the Rig Veda and in the various Orphic fragments, a primordial god is born from a cosmic egg, which when broken becomes the source of heaven and earth. Both the Vedic Prajāpati and the Orphic Protogonos self-procreate in order to create other gods, humans, and animals. They are also both connected to sacrifice through ritual dismemberment, Prajāpati with the annual disassembling of the sacrificial altar, and Protogonos through his heir, Dionysus. The consistent theme in each mythology is creation through fragmentation from an original source. Therefore, the goal of the religious practitioner is to identify with the primordial god and so share his original creative power. This religious purpose is reflected in the poetic tradition of each culture. The poet uses meter, themes and formulae in order to invoke the god's completeness and the dualistic nature of the universe. This comparison contributes to a larger picture of interaction between Greece and India in the development of their poetic and religious traditions. A Thesis submitted to the Department of Classics in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts. Degree Awarded: Spring Semester, 2008. Date of Defense: December 3, 2007. Orphism, Vedism, Indo-Europeans, Poetics Includes bibliographical references.
