What is Necessary for Civility to Develop?

A Comparative Study of Taiwan and the PRC


Talk by David Schak, Giffith University

Thursday, November 06, 2014
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Bunche Hall 10383

This lecture will explore the development of civility in two societies with very similar historical and cultural backgrounds and that for most of the last century were governed by Leninist parties that used campaigns to change grass-roots behaviour. Some of those desired behavioural changes were attempts to impose civility, which I define as respecting the public space and regarding all in one's society as consociates, thus deserving of considerate treatment. One of those societies, Taiwan, while being quite uncivil in the 1960s to the 1980s, became increasingly civil from the 1990s, to the extent that recent longer-term visitors from the PRC marvel and the genuine helpfulness and sincerity of the Taiwanese. In the PRC, while in the larger, more sophisticated cities, most people now queue and are generally helpful to strangers, there are other areas in which incivility prevail, e.g. driver behaviour, spitting, and following smoking restrictions. The lecture will examine these two societies to try to understand what conditions are necessary for a society to develop civility. 

Dr. David Schak
 was educated at UC Berkeley and has an AB in Oriental Languages(1965), and an MA and PhD in Anthropology(1973). After teaching briefly in the US, he migrated to Australia in 1976 and has been affiliated with Griffith University since that time. He has spent over 15 years in Taiwan, first going there in 1959, and another three years in the PRC. He has researched and written on a variety of topics including dating as a new form of mate selection, poverty, beggars, Taiwanese business management and culture, filial daughters in industrialised Chinese society, engaged Buddhism's contributions to Taiwan's civil society, and civility.

Tibetan Studies Lecture
 
Dharma Kings and Queens in Tibet

Letters of Advice to Monarchs on the Sino-Tibetan Frontier in the Late Premodern Period

 
Jann Ronis, UC Berkeley
 
Thursday, November 6, 2014
3:00-4:30 PM
10383 Bunche Hall


Originating almost at the dawn of Buddhist literature, epistles composed by monks for their royal patrons are found across Buddhist Asia. Nāgārjuna’s Ratnāvalī(The Jewel Garland)and Suhṛlleka(Letter to a Friend; both second century C.E.)are the most well known and influential of such writings from Buddhist India but dozens more are still extant. Tibetan lamas wrote epistles for centuries and many of these works represent important works of Buddhist social thought and can serve as historical documents to researchers. In this presentation I will examine a trilogy of epistles composed in the late eighteenth century by a Tibetan lama to the royal family of the kingdom of Degé in eastern Tibet, located in present-day Sichuan Province. The lama in question in this presentation was the highly regarded author and visionary Jikmé Lingpa(1730-1798)and this trilogy of epistles includes one each to the king, queen, and crown prince. I will analyze arguments made in these works for particular religious activities, role models, and values against the polemical contexts of eighteenth century debates in Tibet over the relative merits of lay and ordained kings and Sino-Tibetan relations at the time. Emphasis will be placed on the epistle to the queen as letters to royal women are rare in the historical archive and are under-documented in scholarship. Her name was Tsewang Lhamo and she ascended the throne in 1790 after the early death of her husband and ruled Degé for approximately 20 years, passing on the throne to the crown prince a few years before her death in 1812. Tsewang Lhamo’s epistle is exceptional for its emphatic assertions that as both a layperson and woman she was fully capable of enlightenment and liberatory governance. This talk will appeal to those interested in Tibetan history in an Inner asian context, gender in Buddhism, Buddhist statecraft, and Tibetan literature.

27th Sammy Yukuan Lee Lecture on Chinese Archaeology and Art

Every Rock a Universe - The Yellow Mountains and Chinese Travel Writing

Saturday, November 01, 2014
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Fowler Museum
- Lenart Auditorium 

The Yellow Mountains(Huangshan)of China’s Anhui Province have been famous for centuries as a place of scenic beauty and inspiration, and remain a hugely popular tourist destination today. A “golden age” of Yellow Mountains travel came in the seventeenth century, when they became a refuge for loyalists protesting the new Qing Dynasty, among them poet and artist Wang Hongdu(1646–1721/1722), who dedicated himself to traveling to each and every peak and site and recording his impressions. Unfortunately, his resulting masterpiece of Chinese travel writing was not printed until 1775 and has since remained obscure and available only in Chinese.
