East Asia Now explores connections between East Asia and the United States through interviews, discussions, and lectures. It is an outreach initiative of the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
 
This podcast series represents the work of 28 students from Centre College who took "HIS 435: Spirits, Gods and Ghosts of East Asia" together in January 2017. They received no prompt or recommended categories from their instructor, and built these episodes from scratch themselves with virtually no prior audio engineering experience. These episodes represent a diverse collection of student research into broader categories of East Asian folklore and ghost tales.

Drawing on a wide range of texts and using an interdisciplinary approach, The Politics of Time in China and Japan: Back to the Future (Routledge, 2022) by Viren Murthy shows how Chinese and Japanese intellectuals mobilized the past to create a better future.

While the loss of sight—whether in early modern Japan or now—may be understood as a disability, blind people in the Tokugawa period (1600–1868) could thrive because of disability. The blind of the era were prominent across a wide range of professions, and through a strong guild structure were able to exert contractual monopolies over certain trades…

The eight-legged essay (bagu wen) was the one genre of writing that dominated in late imperial China. As the primary mode of expression in which men were schooled, writing and reading shiwen (modern or contemporary prose) epitomized literary production in Ming-Qing China, and it was vitally important for every student, examination candidate, and ex…

In the nineteenth century, one group of American merchants reported an odd request from the Vietnamese emperor. An envoy asked if the traders could help procure a commodity brought by a previous delegation: a precious good that turned out to be a bottle of Best Durham bottled mustard. That’s one small anecdote in Eric Tagliocozzo’s latest book, In …
 
Alongside rapid socio-economic development, China has achieved remarkable gains in gender equality on metrics like health, education, and labor force participation.

Onboard was a full cargo load, likely intended for the Middle Eastern market, of over 60,000 Chinese Tang-dynasty ceramics, gold, and other precious objects. It is one of the most significant shipwreck discoveries of recent times, revealin…
 
As a broad category of identity, “transgender” has given life to a vibrant field of academic research since the 1990s. Yet the Western origins of the field have tended to limit its cross-cultural scope. Howard Chiang proposes a new paradigm for doing transgender history in which geopolitics assumes central importance. Defined as the antidote to tra…
 
Like many states emerging from oppressive political rule, Taiwan saw a cultural explosion in the late 1980s, when nearly four decades of martial law under the Chinese Nationalist Party ended.

In the face of a Korean cultural world preoccupied with newness, literary output from the more measured and regulated Choson period (1392-1910) can seem difficult to engage with for readers both inside and outside the country. But as Ksenia Chizhova’s Kinship Novels of Early Modern Korea: Between Genealogical Time and the Domestic Everyday (Columbi…

In the strategy game Civilization VI, where players choose world leaders to be their avatar, Qin Shihuang, the First Emperor of China, has one goal in mind: building wonders (like the Great Wall of China).

Does human existence have a meaning? If so, is that meaning found in the world outside of us, or is it something we bring to our experience? In Cross-Cultural Existentialism: On the Meaning of Life in Asian and Western Thought (Bloomsbury, 2020) Leah Kalmanson shows how East Asian philosophies challenge the dichotomy implicit in the way this questi…
 
What would an “anti-field history” of Buddhist Studies look like? What does the social history of knowledge look like when it both includes and exceeds the West/Nonwest binary, the ethnonational subject, the secular humanist gaze, and the moral narratives and metaphysical content of modernism?

For decades Americans have described China as a rising power. That description no longer fits: China has already risen. What does this mean for the U.S.–China relationship? For the global economy and international security? In this conversation, Julie Yu-Wen Chen, Professor of Chinese Studies at the University of Helsinki discusses with Maria Adele…
 
“We’ll compete with confidence; we’ll cooperate wherever we can; we’ll contest where we must.” That’s the new China strategy as outlined by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken earlier this year. But just exactly how countries should deal with China—including working with it, when the times call for it—is perhaps the thorniest question in interna…

圖片為何鳳山個人照。 二 何鳳山、周其庠的救命簽證 1930年代末期,納粹德國開始在全歐洲範圍迫害猶太人、吉普賽人與精神殘障族群,並進行系統性大屠殺,也就是納粹大屠殺(Holocaust)。當時中華民國駐奧地利總領事何鳳山與其館員周其庠副領事,大規模發放數千份救命簽證給亟需出國簽證的奧地利猶太人族群,許多人拿到出國簽證而能幸運地搭船離境,前往上海、巴勒斯坦或其他地方而避免殺身之禍,某些人甚至是家族中唯一逃出來的幸運兒。留在歐陸的大多數猶太人,則不幸地在納粹集中營中被集體處決。 同樣的事情發生在日本當時駐立陶宛的代領事杉原千畝,他在任內大量發出過境簽證給逃避納粹迫害的猶太人,據稱發出簽證達六千份,即使在離任的火車上也不斷蓋章簽發簽證,讓這些拿到簽證的猶太人都能逃離被滅絕的悲慘命運,因此杉原千畝…
 
歐亞大陸中西部遊牧民族始祖塞種人 要研究歐亞大陸上,包括俄羅斯草原、西伯利亞、中亞草原及蒙古高原上居住遷徙之遊牧民族,就不能不提塞種人。 塞種人是中國古籍對生活在歐亞大陸中心地帶的一群古老西方遊牧民族之統稱,他們在西方的農耕文明如波斯人、埃及人、希臘人的歷史書籍中也有不同名稱,波斯人稱他們為「斯基泰人」(Skitei)、希臘人稱他們為「西徐亞人」(Scythian),這些名稱都完全可以相互沿用,我們不特別區分。 塞種人是印歐民族,下屬有非常多的不同部族與部落,如馬薩革泰人(Massagetes)、大益人(Dahae)、辛美利亞人(Cimmericans)、薩爾馬提亞人(Sarmatians)等,都屬於塞種人部落聯盟的一份子。 塞種人起源在歐亞大陸北方俄羅斯大草原上,西起烏克蘭黑海岸,東到阿爾…
 
東胡 東胡,這個古老的遊牧民族是講古蒙古語的民族,東胡與濊貊、肅慎並列為三個最強大的老東北土著民族,字面意義即可辨識出,該民族在整個北方游牧世界中是居於東部的位置。經推測,東胡掌控的地盤包括今日蒙古國東部、中國內蒙古東部、東北西部。 東胡存在的時間很久遠,可能在商代初年便存在,先秦古籍《山海經.海內西經》第九段提到「東胡在大澤東,夷人在東胡東」,當中的「大澤」被推斷是今內蒙古呼倫湖。當然這是推測,古老中原文明在黃河邊發源時,北方是東胡,東方的山東之地就是東夷,所以東胡東指的哪裡?應該是大致的指向並非精確的指名。 近代考古工作認為東胡主要發源地在西拉木倫河流域,這也是東胡後代契丹與奚族的起源地,此地與山戎活躍地點「夏家店遺址」及更古老的「富河文化」遺址所挖掘出的器物基本上可以判斷出是同一個游牧…
 
Today I spoke with Carles Prado-Fonts on his recently published book Secondhand China: Spain, the East, and the Politics of Translation (Northwestern UP, 2022).

Yan Ge and Jeremy Tiang are both writers who accumulate languages. Sitting down with host Emily Hyde, they discuss their work in and across Chinese and English, but you’ll also hear them on Sichuanese, the dialect of Mandarin spoken in Yan Ge’s native Sichuan province, and on the Queen’s English as it operates in Singapore, where Jeremy grew up. Ya…
 
We don’t even know the real name of the 11th century author Murasaki Shikibu. But we do know that her book, The Tale of Genji, is arguably one of the most influential Japanese texts to date. Genji quickly captured its readers’ imaginations with political intrigue and court drama, but it can also be read as an astute critique of Japanese elite socie…

Paul Elizabeth and John discus…
 
Most Hong Kong residents nowadays only have to worry about a wandering boar or an aggressive monkey in their day-to-day lives. But for much of its history, those living in the British colony were worried about a very different form of wildlife: the South China tiger. Not that their British overlords always believed them, as John Saeki notes in his …

一 猶太人與中國的淵源 以色列國自1948年建國,至今2021年已超過73年,已經幾乎是普通人一生壽命的時間,但在漫長的猶太人歷史上只是個零頭的時間。因為按照猶太曆法,西元2021年是猶太曆5781年,比起號稱五千年的中國歷史可是更加悠久。這兩個同樣歷史悠久的民族,在歷史上有沒有往來?當然有,就讓我為您一一道來。 開封猶太人 歷史上曾有若干猶太人隨著絲路商隊分別經陸路或海路,在不同時間點來到中國。 其中最古老的一支,依據今天印度東北瑪拿西之子(Bnei Menashe)猶太人的傳說,他們在亞歷山大大帝東征時代(西元前336-323年),就從當時寄居的波斯往東北逃亡到阿富汗、中亞以逃避希臘人的統治,最後並往東北方向一直遷徙到中國,當時中國可是東周戰國七雄時期,可見猶太人流亡世界的歷史有多麼久遠…
 
圖片為小孟鼎與其銘文 鬼方 「鬼方」這個北方游牧部族,也是歷史上對古老中國農耕文明造成強大威脅的勢力之一,這個部族名最初出現在《易經》與《詩經》中,也有史籍稱其為「媿氏、鬼方氏、鬼方蠻」。鬼方是一個與葷粥、獫狁一樣古老的遊牧民族,從商代與周代,居住在關中平原北方的鬼方就時時向南侵略。 《易經 既濟》描述鬼方篇章:「高宗罰鬼方,三年克之。」意思是促成商代中興的商朝高宗武丁(商朝第23位國君,統治時期為西元前1250年-西元前1192年),他在位的第34年(西元前1216年)時,曾派出中國歷史上最早的女將軍,也是他的妻子「婦好」率軍征討鬼方,打了三年才勝利克竟其功。 至於鬼方到底是怎樣的民族?起源何處?有一種歷史學家的說法是,鬼方係中亞來的印歐民族人種塞種人,也就是白種高加索人種,與大月氏、匈奴…
