GSW’s Center for Chinese Bie-modern Studies to host virtual international symposium

The Center for Chinese Bie-modern Studies (CCBMS) at GSW, in collaboration with the Institute of Aesthetics and Aesthetic Education of Shanghai Normal University and the Center for Bie-modern Studies at the University of Primorska, will host a virtual international symposium to be held online October 1-3, 2020. The conference, "Bie-modernism: Current Challenges and the Future--Chinese and Western Dialogues on Art, Modernity, Postmodernity, concepts of Truth and History", will focus on a wide range of topics that engage issues in contemporary Chinese culture and cultures in similarly developing countries or within the developed west. 

Dr. Wang Jianjiang, a Chinese scholar in Shanghai has proposed a theory of “Bie-modernism” as a way to discuss the contemporary Chinese experience as unique and different from the western phenomenon. His ideas have been expanding globally while creating a growing dialogue between Chinese and western scholars concerning zhuyi and or "ism" (theory).  This has led to the questioning of historical modes and comparisons between the Bie-modern and modern, Bie-modern and postmodern, the resilience of pre-modern perspectives, art and reality, and a wide array of contemporary issues. The collision between Chinese and western scholars comes from their different cultural backgrounds, knowledge systems and values, which have thus formed many intersections of unique and contrasting perspectives. The concept of Bie-modern has been and can be applied to a variety of disciplines and not merely art and aesthetics. Paper proposals are encouraged from all disciplines. Abstracts of 500 words are due August 1, 2020, and full text of 6,000-10,000 words are due September 1, 2020. Selected papers will be compiled and published in paperback book form.

Please contact Keaton Wynn (keaton.wynn@gsw.edu) or visit the Center for Chinese Bie-modern Studies webpage for more information on the program.
