蕭紅女性書寫研究 The Research of Xiao Hong’s Female Writing

Time:12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: Ms. PENG Yiyi (PhD Candidate, Gender Studies Programme, CUHK)

Moderator: Prof. HOYAN Hang Fung Carole (Associate Professor, Department of Chinese Language and Literature, CUHK)

Abstract:Wed Gender Seminar 24 March Eng

For those privileged young singleton urban daughters, the investment in their education from natal family quickly translates into human as well as cultural capital in establishing their online business. However, their educational attainments are, at the same time, perceived as overachievements and therefore discourage them from further cultivation in the e-commerce industry. The mechanism through which entrepreneurial motivations are constructed by the natal family is significantly distinct from that of the marital family for the women entrepreneurs in online business.

When researching Feminist literature, people always attached great importance to the control of the discourse power of female writers, encouraging writers to start from the perspective and experience of women and express their own voice through the text, so that women can "be saved by writing in this specific way". In this way, the subjective demands of female writers can be reflected a certain significance in writing. In the history of modern Chinese literature, Xiao Hong has always been in the position of forming her own writing style with self-narrative text, which including prose, novels and poetry. Researches on her image, not only pay attention to all kinds of biography, film and dance drama related to her image, but also need to return to her text narrative, and self-writing.

This report discusses the self-image of Xiao Hong's in her feminist writing. From the perspectives of female writing, autobiography and subjectivity construction, these texts can discuss the relationship between Xiao Hong's characters and their own images, as well as Xiao Hong's autobiographical discourse. At the same time, in the sense of the combination of literature and gender, Xiao Hong completed the construction of female subjectivity in the process of writing, and this subjectivity makes the writer's self-construction clearer. Of course, in the process of analyzing and accepting the images of female writers, it also existed some problems of female images being gazed at and constructed by others. This research hopes to bridge the gap between feminism and literary texts, to create a dialogue between them, and even to find the "acceptance history of feminist writers".

Speaker’s Biography:

PENG Yiyi, from Guangzhou, China, is a year-3 PhD student in Gender Studies & Department of Chinese Language and Literature. She got her BA from the Department of Chinese Language and Literature, South China Normal University, MA in Cultural Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and MPhil in the Department of Chinese Language and Literature, Hong Kong Baptist University. Her main research field is Modern and Contemporary Chinese literature as well as Chinese Feminist Literature, especially the research on female writer Xiao Hong (蕭紅). The title of her PhD dissertation is "The study on the reception history of Xiao Hong's image".

講者: 彭伊依 (性別研究課程及中文系哲學博士候選人)

主持: 何杏楓 (⾹港中⽂⼤學中國語⾔及⽂學系副教授)

概要:

女性主義文學向來重視女性作家話語權的把控,鼓勵作家從女性的視角與經驗出發,通過文本發出自己的聲音,使婦女「用寫作這種特定的方式獲得拯救」。如此,女作家們的主體訴求可以在文本書寫中體現出一定的意義。在中國現代文學的歷史中,蕭紅一直處於以自敘式文本形成自我創作風格的位置,涵蓋散文、小說與詩歌等。論其形象,不僅各類傳記、影視等雖已多樣化描寫與呈現,而且還需回歸到她的文本敘述中,審視其自我書寫。

本報告論述蕭紅作品的女性主義書寫呈現出的自我形象。這些文本從女體書寫、自敘語係與主體性建構等角度分析,可論述蕭紅筆下人物與其自身形象的關聯,以及蕭紅的自敘話語。同時,在文學與性別相結合的意義上,蕭紅在創作的過程中完成了女性主體性的建構,而這種主體性又使作家的自我建構變得更加清晰。當然,在分析並接受女性作家形象的過程中,也出現了女性形象被凝視、被他者建構的種種問題。

本研究希望可以打通女性主義與文學文本的橋樑,讓它們之間產生對話,甚至分出「女性主義作家接受史」的枝節。

Family Matters: Gender and Motivations in Women’s Online Entrepreneurship

Time:12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: Ms. TANG Lin (PhD Candidate in Gender Studies Programme & Department of Sociology, CUHK)

Moderator: Prof. SONG Jing (Assistant Professor, Gender Studies Programme, CUHK)

Abstract:20210317 wed poster s

Whether women are empowered or further exploded through more diversified economic activities is one of the most heatedly debated topics in academia. Contextualized in post-reform China, this seminar examines how gendered experiences construct women’s motivation in online entrepreneurship. While existing literature tends to attribute women’s pursuit of self-employment to their domestic responsibilities, this project illustrates a more complex version of family-work dynamics in the e-commerce industry.

For those privileged young singleton urban daughters, the investment in their education from natal family quickly translates into human as well as cultural capital in establishing their online business. However, their educational attainments are, at the same time, perceived as overachievements and therefore discourage them from further cultivation in the e-commerce industry. The mechanism through which entrepreneurial motivations are constructed by the natal family is significantly distinct from that of the marital family for the women entrepreneurs in online business.

Speaker’s Biography:

Ms. TANG Lin is a Ph.D. candidate in Gender Studies Programme and the Department of Sociology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her research interests include sociology of gender, entrepreneurial activities, paid and unpaid work of women, online methods, and feminist methodology. The proposed title of her doctoral project is E-mpowerment or E-xploitation? Motivations, Resources, and Family-Work Dynamics in Women’s Online Entrepreneurship.

The Profile of Risk in Cervical Cancer Prevention in Southwest China

Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: Ms. WU Yuehan (candidate of PhD in Gender Studies (subject discipline: Anthropology), The Chinese University of Hong Kong)

Moderator: Prof. HUANG Hsuan-Ying (Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, CUHK)

Abstract:Wed Gender Seminar 3 March r

This presentation aims to unpack how the notion of risk is constructed in the practice of cervical cancer prevention in Chongqing, China. In brief, cervical cancer prevention is a two-step procedure — vaccination and screening — and needs governmental promotion, medical intervention, and individual participation. Although these three practices are usually intersected, because the main actors are different, the notions of risk they generate in their practices varies. Social scientists have long revealed to us that our notions of risk is based on knowledge and everyday life. In this presentation, I take a relational approach (Boholm 1996, 2003; Boholm and Corvellec 2011) to analyze how risk is differently constructed in three practices of cervical cancer prevention in Chongqing. In section one, by investigating central-level and local-level policies and projects for cervical cancer prevention, I discuss how the government make connections between cervical cancer and social development. From a top-down perspective, cervical cancer is the risk object which sets social development at risk. However, from a bottom-up perspective, this relationship could be vise versa. In section two, by observing medical intervention in a gynecology clinic, I discuss how medical practitioners make connections between cervical cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV). Theoretically, the causal relationship between HPV infection and cervical cancer is clear. But, it is never straightforward in real-life cases. Medical practitioners are not only affected by the sociocultural environment but also trapped in the medical system, when assessing risk. In the last section, by interviewing women who actively participated in HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening, I discuss how Chinese women build connections between HPV and their lives. Initially, women understand that HPV is the risk object which sets their health at risk. As women get more involved in preventive practices, however, they perceive themselves as the risk object that may put their loved ones in danger. By unpacking these three different yet intertwined conceptualizations of risk in cervical cancer prevention, this presentation aims to better understand how health risk is understood in China today.

Speaker’s Biography:

WU Yuehan is a Ph.D candidate in gender studies and anthropology at CUHK. Her research interests include medical anthropology, science and technology studies, feminist theory, and the anthropology of China. Her current research is about cervical cancer prevention in southwest China.

A “Phoenix” Rising from the Ashes: China’s Tongqi, Marriage Fraud, and Resistance

Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: PROF. EILEEN YUK-HA TSANG (ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCES, CITYU)

Moderator: PROF. SUSANNE YUK-PING CHOI (PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY; CO-DIRECTOR, GENDER RESEARCH CENTRE, CUHK)

Abstract:20210120poster

There are significant numbers of women in China who have inadvertently married closeted gay men. Women in China who unwittingly marry closeted gay men are known as Tongqi (同妻), and these women often discover their husband’s secret only after giving birth to fulfil filial obligations. These women taken into this “marriage fraud” are initially unaware of their husbands’ sexual orientation. Because China’s divorce law favours men, even if the wife files for divorce, the husband often wins custody of children. The tendency to blame the victim extends even to the woman’s own immediate families. These women suffer the heightened risk of not only physical death from AIDS and other diseases, but psychological death through the loss of physical mobility, alienation of kin, and death of their heterosexual marriage identity. This article extends necropolitics to the social death situations of 12 educated and 47 low-educated Tongqi and reveals how they resist and overcome their circumstances. Tongqi are the victims of violations involving their own marriage, but they are not simply waiting for death. Taking an ethnographical approach, this work uses the social death concept of necropolitics to provide an understanding of how marriage and gender laws perpetuate these dysfunctional unions.

Speaker’s Biography:

Eileen Y.H Tsang’s research interests include the sociology of the middle class; sociology of gender and sexualities; gender, crime and human trafficking. Her recent books include Unlocking the Red Closet: Necropolitics, Male Sex Workers, and Tongqi (Cornell University Press, 2021); China's Commercial Sexscapes: Rethinking Intimacy, Masculinity, and Criminal Justice (University of Toronto Press 2019), The New Middle Class in China: Consumption, Politics and the Market Economy (Palgrave 2014). She has also published in British Journal of Sociology; Dialogue in Human Geography; Gender, Place, and Culture; The China Quarterly; and Psychology of Violence.

“Little Bees Just Have to Keep Moving”: Temporary Work, Gendered Skills, and Excessive Mobility in Real Estate Sales Promotion in Urban China

Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: Prof. Prof. Yang Zhan (Assistant Professor, Department of Applied Social Sciences, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

Moderator: Dr. Joseph Man Kit CHO (Lecturer, Gender Studies Programme, CUHK)

Abstract:20201118wed poster

As the real estate market expands in China’s second and third tier cities, many middle-aged women laborers with rural backgrounds have been incorporated into the sales promotion sector of real estate—or qudao (channel)—for their perceived gendered qualities such as diligence and persistence. Unlike jobs in the service sector, on assembly lines, or care work within households, qudao work is mobile in nature. Referred to as “little bees, ” these temporary workers constantly move through cities advertising real estate to potential customers. This talk focuses on the recruitment, training, mobile routes, and work experiences of middle-aged “little bees.” I argue that these women workers face an impasse of excessive mobility: on the one hand, they must maintain an intensive and often futile mobile pace resulting from both bureaucratization and market competition. On the other hand, even if they are aware of its futility, they remain morally attached to mobility because being mobile, however performative in manner, proves their diligence. They are thus trapped in excessive mobility and unable to achieve a work-life balance, or even perform family duties—the goal that drove them into a flexible qudao job in the first place.

Speaker’s Biography:

Yang Zhan is Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Social Sciences at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She is a cultural anthropologist by training. Her research interests include rural-urban dynamics, migration and mobility, informality, and governance.

Marriage as Filial Duty, Personal Choice or Social Expectation?: Exploring Differences in the Experiences of Single Women in Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Tokyo

Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: Prof. Lynne Y. Nakano (Professor, Department of Japanese Studies, CUHK)

Moderator: PROF. DAI HAIJING (ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL WORK, CUHK)

Abstract:20201111wed poster

The speaker will argue that the experiences of single women living in the three cities of Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Tokyo share basic similarities in that women in all three cities encounter contradictory expectations that they perform well at school and work while also preparing to prioritize family responsibilities. That said, single women’s experiences also differ markedly across the three cities. In Shanghai, marriage is seen as a filial duty, in Hong Kong, it is viewed as a personal choice and in Tokyo, it is experienced as a social expectation. The speaker will argue that these similarities and differences can be explained not so much through examining legal, political, or economic structures, but by examining how families in the three societies organize women’s domestic labor, and by considering the different ways in which marriage and women’s provision of care services intersect in the three societies under study.

Speaker’s Biography:

Lynne Y. Nakano is Professor in the Department of Japanese Studies, CUHK. Trained as an anthropologist, she has published on volunteering, single women and gender issues in Japan. Her book, Making Our Own Destiny: Single Women, Opportunity, and Family in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Tokyo is forthcoming from the University of Hawai’i Press in 2021.

Abstract:Wed Gender Seminar 28 Oct 2020 2

This seminar explores the use of affective frameworks in analyzing two arts-based projects with domestic workers, asylum-seekers and ethnic minorities. First, we discuss the role of emotion in analysing relational rhythms in Visualizing the Voices of Migrant Women Workers, a participatory video project involving over 40 domestic workers, asylum seekers and ethnic minority participants. Second, we consider the practice and presence of enchantment in the project Sustainable Sunday Couture: Domestic Workers Upcycling Fashion which featured upcycled gowns designed by Elpie Malicsi, a Filipino domestic worker based in Hong Kong. We analyse the use of transformation in catalyzing affective, intellectual, and ethical disruptions for public audiences and the new potentialities that may contribute to the respect and recognition of domestic workers’ creative contributions to the culture of Hong Kong. We conclude with a discussion of shifting participatory methodologies in the current global context.

Premarital Abortion: Reproductive Politics in Post-Socialist China

 

Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)

Speaker: Prof. LAI Yuen Shan Ruby (Research Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology and Social Policy, Lingnan University)

Moderator: Prof. LING Minhua (Associate Professor and Associate Director, Centre for China Studies, CUHK)

Abstract:20201021wed poster

This study examines issues surrounding reproduction among the unmarried population in China by focusing on the experience of abortion in relation to the institution of family, the state, and the market. It aims to analyze the impact of the sociopolitical and cultural transformations in China during the past three decades on the lives of women, and their responses to these structural changes. The findings are drawn from fieldworks conducted between 2013 and 2019. Based on the findings, I introduce a framework that incorporates the individual, relational, and social dimensions of reproduction. The framework suggests that the experiences of premarital abortion are situated in a web of interpersonal relationships that are entwined between the women, their male partners and their parents. These relationships serve as the interfaces that connect the women reproductive selves to the macro social structures, and are interweaved in the lives of these women. I argue that abortion is essential for women to exercise their bodily control and to survive in an increasingly uncertain and stratified society, but it is insufficient for them to achieve reproductive autonomy. To enhance individuals’ reproductive freedom, policy should be directed at eliminating discriminations based on gender, class, and migration status.

Speaker’s Biography:

Ruby Lai Yuen Shan received her PhD in Sociology from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her research interests revolve around gender, family, reproductive politics, and ethnicity in Hong Kong and China. Her doctoral research explores how reproductive choices of young Chinese women are shaped by structural forces such as the state policies, the labor market, and the interpersonal dynamics within the changing family and sexual culture in China. Her other works look at the lives of new immigrants, ethnic minorities, and family relations in Hong Kong.

Speaker: Prof. LIU Monica (Assistant Professor, Department of Justice and Society Studies, University of St. Thomas)

Moderator: Prof. HAN Ling (Assistant Professor, Gender Studies Programme, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)

Abstract:20201014posterv2 s

My work explores the life histories and decision-making processes of Chinese women who seek marriages with Western men. The majority of the women in my study is middle-aged (above 40), divorced, and come from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. I explore how emerging inequalities brought on by China’s transition from state socialism toward a global market economy shaped their shared desires to seek out-migration via marriage. My work is set against the backdrop of China’s economic ascendance on the world stage alongside a relative decline of the West. I compare how Chinese women from diverse class backgrounds envision a relatively homogenous group of men: Western men in agriculture, manufacturing, and small business sectors who feel they have been left behind by globalization. Through analyzing modest-earning Western men’s declining ability to marry middle and upper-middle class Chinese women, my work sheds light on China’s changing relationship with the global north. I show that a new global hierarchy of masculinity based on economic distinction has emerged, and this new hierarchy challenges Western men’s privilege in China previously associated with their racial, ethnic, and geopolitical status.

‘To Shine’ or ‘To Die’?: ‘Womenomics’ and Women’s Worth to the Economy in Neoliberal Japan 

 

 

Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Online Zoom Seminar (Link to Zoom webinar will be sent to you after registration)


Speaker: Prof. HO Swee Lin (Associate Professor of Anthropology, Department of Sociology, National University of Singapore)


Moderator: Prof. SONG Jing (Assistant Professor, Gender Studies Programme, CUHK)

Abstract:Wed Gender Seminar s1 23 September 2020

This seminar presents the challenges experienced by women with professional careers in Japan that have been intensified by Prime Minister Abe Shinzo’s ‘womenomics’ programme. As an ideological tool for economic growth, ‘womenomics’ compounds existing problems relating to gender inequality; reinforces women’s inferior role in the corporate workplace as peripheral, non-core players; and exacerbates women’s marginal position in Japanese society. The popular media in Japan still portray career women disparagingly, while after-work drinking becomes a necessity for women managers – though at their own time and expense – to manage disharmonious relations with subordinates and protect their career. Furthermore, Japan’s antiquated labour laws allow employers to utilise nominal management by promoting workers with enhanced job titles and additional workload, but limited increase in remuneration or authority. With weak labour unions in Japan offering workers limited access to collective representations and little protection against unfair or abusive practices, new legislations to combat workplace bullying and harassment ironically become novel justifications for employers to discriminate against workers. The risks and challenges faced by women pursuing management-track careers have generated conflicts in their lives and aggravated their precarious conditions, with serious ramifications on their emotional and psychological health, as well as social relations and senses of the self.
