環球可持續發展講座 | What is the 'S' in 'ESG’? 

Global Development and Sustainability Talk | What is the 'S' in 'ESG’?  

  • Registration: Open | Closed

  • Delivery Mode: Zoom + LingnanVerse 

  • Target audience: Prioity given to F4-F6 students 

  • Language: English 

當大家聽見近年流行的「環境、社會和管治(ESG)」及「可持續發展」,很多時便想起氣候變化及綠色科技。但從聯合國的可持續發展目標(SDGs)可見社會及文化因素亦舉足輕重。此講座闡述ESG中的”S”(社會)元素,解釋為何人性化的考量對於商業利益及環境可持續發展攸關重要。講座亦探討包括嶺南大學環球可持續發展課程在內的不同大學課程,如何裝備學生成為社會及文化可持續發展界的未來領袖。

'ESG' and 'sustainability' are trendy terms these days. When we hear these terms, we often think first of climate change and green technology. But the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) show clearly that social and cultural factors are also crucial. This talk explains the "S", the "social" element, of ESG, demonstrating why human concerns are central to both business interests and environmental sustainability. The talk also explores how different university programmes, including Lingnan's Global Development and Sustainability Programme, can prepare students to be future leaders in social and cultural sustainability.

哲學系分享 | 動漫有哲學 | 羈絆,力量,與自由 – 進撃の巨人的哲學反思  
Philosophy Sharing |  Philosophical Anime That Will Make You Think   


  • Registration: Open | Closed

  • Delivery Mode: Zoom + LingnanVerse

  • Target audience: Local, especially F4-F6 students

所謂「哲學」,在西方名詞原意為「熱愛智慧」,但智慧所指為何?是純粹抽象玄思嗎?當然不是,西哲蘇格拉底追求哲學是為了反思人生。但人生又所在何處,在大是大非,在知識追求,在種種體驗,在電影小說,當然亦在動漫電玩。近年終於完結的動漫巨作《進擊之巨人》即為一例。漫不經心地看,不就是巨人跑來跑去、軍人飛來飛去的熱血暴力笨蛋漫畫嗎?但細心一讀,就會發現當中其實在探討很多人生政治道德倫理面向,通通都是哲學反思的重要課題,就讓我們用一小時探討《巨人》所展示的人生困境,特別是人生於世,壓迫處處,所謂自由,所謂何事?

Philosophy literally means “love of wisdom.” Yet what is the subject matter that wisdom is applied to? Socrates says "An unexamined life is not worth living". Philosophy is about the reflection of life experience, which can be found in collective social life, in pursuit of knowledge, and in daily experience and sensations. Philosophy is in life itself.  As such representations of life such as movies, fictions, and anime are all loaded with philosophical issues. In this talk, we will examine a manga classic Attack of the Titans. The talk will explore, behind all the gory scenes of bloodshed, how it is drawing distinctions between different kinds of freedoms that are entangled with a world made of violence, group survival, and loyalty.

對於秦考古,大家當然都熟悉兵馬俑。 然而,秦考古的領域絕對不止於秦始皇陵。在過去的幾十年,考古學家發掘出不可勝數的秦代文物,大大加深我們對秦史的認識。 此講將介紹秦考古的一些最新發現以及它們所引起的歷史辯論。


Most people are familiar with the amazing terracotta warriors from Ancient China. It is indeed one of the most important archaeological discoveries from the tomb of the First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty (221-207 BCE). However, Qin archaeology is hardly limited to just that. In the past few decades, archaeologists have uncovered numerous new artefacts of the Qin empire. In this lecture, Prof. Vincent Leung will introduce some of these new important discoveries and discuss what new information they gave us about the history of the Qin empire.

演講者個人簡介

顧一心,嶺南大學中文系助理教授,普林斯頓大學博士(2022)。研究領域涉及中國古典文學、文化及思想史,尤其關注早期至中古時段(先秦至唐),興趣涉及詩學、哲學、史學、語文、修辭、美學及文論等領域。博士論文《博學之魅:漢魏文學文化的典範與征象》(2022)獲普林斯頓大學博士論文獎,並將作爲第一本專書計劃的基礎。其他研究成果以英文或中文發表於《通報》、《美國東方學會會刊》、《中華文史論叢》、《遠東學報》等海內外學術期刊。同時,作爲一位嚴肅的古典詩歌創作者與實踐者,他尤其關切於漢語詩歌作爲一種持續自我更新的世界性經驗和美學基礎的生命和潛力。

Yixin Gu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chinese at Lingnan University, a post that he has held since receiving his doctorate from Princeton University in 2022. His research cuts across classical Chinese literature, culture, and intellectual history, with a focus on early and medieval times (pre-imperial through Tang period) and wide-ranging interests in poetics, philosophy, historiography, philology, rhetoric, aesthetics, literary criticism, and beyond. His dissertation, “The Enchantment of Erudition: Models and Manifestations of Literary Culture in Han-Wei China” (2022), a winner of the Marjorie Chadwick Buchanan Dissertation Prize (Princeton University), is foundational to his first book project. Some of his research outputs were published in English or Chinese in academic journals like T’oung Pao, Journal of the American Oriental Society, Zhonghua wenshi lunsong, and Oriens Extremus. Simultaneously, as a serious author and practitioner of classical Chinese poetry, he is particularly concerned with the vitality and potential of Chinese poetry as an ever-renewing source sustaining the worldwide foundation of experience and aesthetics.

 

 

講座題目與簡介

 

翻譯與創編之際:《越人歌》及其意義

Translation-as-Composition: The “Song of a Yue” and Its Implications

 

本次講座將在早期漢語詩歌生成、傳播與流變的多重情境中重新考察「越人歌」這一文學與文化案例。有別於將楚「譯」版「越人歌」籠統視爲最早的漢語「譯詩」的觀點,本文結合語言學方面的重構工作,重點關注楚譯「越人歌」與其他古典漢語詩歌在韻律、程式和表達方式上的關聯,尤其是楚譯結尾二句與越歌的差異及其與早期至中古詩歌之間的互文性。基於以上考察,本文將楚譯「越人歌」視爲跨語際(trans-lingual)與內語際(intra-lingual)實踐的複合產物,體現出「互爲彼此的翻譯和創編」(Translation-as-Composition)的實踐過程和基本原理。此外,本文亦從文本生成理論、傳播媒介以及文學的社會學等角度,探討了這一個案之於早期中國文學和文本研究的更多意義。

This lecture will revisit the “Song of a Yue” (“Yueren ge” 越人歌) as a case of literature and cultural history within the multi-layered context of the formation, circulation, and variation of early “Chinese” poetry. The study negotiates an over-simplified assessment of the “Song of a Yue”—a Chu-style Chinese verbalization of a “Yue” song—as the oldest Chinese poetic “translation” of a non-Chinese one. Instead, by integrating previous works of linguistic reconstruction, the lecture will focus on the intra-lingual, intertextual correspondence between the verse and other poetic artifacts in classical Chinese, regarding their metrics, patterns, and ways of utterance, especially concerning the difference between the verse and the reconstructed “Yue” song, as well as the intertextuality between the verse’s ending couplet and other early and medieval Chinese poems. With these, the study considers the “Song of a Yue” as a composite product of trans-lingual and intra-lingual practices, which showcases the process and foundational principles of what I conceptualize as “translation-as-composition.” Additionally, the lecture will also discuss the case’s further implications in the areas of textual composition theory, media-based experience, and the sociology of literature.

The Department of History at Lingnan University, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Courtyard and Interpretation Centre, will screen Mount DavisFrom Citadel to Campus, a documentary that chronicles the story of Mount Davis’ historic Jubilee Battery and the auxiliary military building known as the “White House.” During the 1967 riots, the Royal Hong Kong Police Force used the White House as the Victoria Road Detention Centre. In this documentary, detainees from the 1967 riots recount the tumultuous times leading to their imprisonment in the White House. Today, the University of Chicago has transformed the site completely, giving it new life as a centre for education. The documentary presents a compelling account of the rich history of the Mount Davis site as well as its rebirth.
 
The documentary is presented in Cantonese and English with traditional Chinese and English subtitles. We welcome everyone, particularly university and secondary school students interested in Hong Kong history, to join our event.

Discovering Philosophy in Chinese (26th January 2023)
The study of Chinese in secondary schools covers a wide range of topics: rhetoric, history, literary criticism, and many more. It also covers certain philosophical issues, such as the locus of meaning, the demand of morality, the ideal relationship between individual and society, etc. In this talk, we are going to discuss some of these issues embedded in textbooks and public exams and point our certain formats of philosophical inquiry, namely its focus on reason.
 
Speaker’s introduction
Dr. Wai Wai Chiu is a specialist in pre-Han philosophy, especially the Mozi and the Zhuangzi. He mainly teaches history of Chinese philosophy courses and a course on the Zhuangzi’s epistemology and ethics. Most of his research works can be found in English journals. Besides academic papers and books he also reads comics, and he sometimes finds that the former is funny and the latter is deep.
