Wednesday Lunch Talk -- The Advent of the Modern as Business Venture: The Case of the Commercial Press
A talk by Professor Theodore Huters, Department of Asian Languages & Cultures
Wednesday, March 08, 2006
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
11377 Bunche Hall
In his talk, Professor Huters will reexamine the process by which the vernacular replaced the classical language as the dominant medium of cultural interaction in China in the 1910s. His thesis is that the transformation was carefully engineered by a group of men intent upon reinstituting an intellectual orthodoxy in modern Chinese, one based on Western academic models.
Open to UCLA students & faculty, and others by invitation.
