Dos clientes chinese friendly serán premiadas en la I Edición de los Premios Cátedra China.

El Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, primer museo de arte adaptado al turismo chino y sede de la III Chinese Friendly Cities World Conference, y la ciudad de Zaragoza, destino chinese friendly desde hace poco más de un año y que ha tenido un incremento del 475% en la recepción de turistas chinos, serán dos de los cuatro galardonados por la entidad en la Primera Edición de sus premios.

Ambas entidades reflejan la importancia de realizar un proceso de adaptación para acercar su oferta turística a la idiosincrasia del turista chino y poder competir con éxito en éste mercado emergente.

El uso de la marca Chinese Friendly ha sido un punto clave para el momento de elección de destino de los turistas chinos, lo cual se evidencia en sus estraordinarios resultados.

SILK ROAD LECTURE, STANFORD UNIVERSITY

Tamara Chin, Assoc. Professor of Comparative Literature, Brown University

“Inventing Silk Road Studies”

Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.

Knight Building, 521 Memorial Way (behind Memorial Auditorium), Room 102

Since the 1980s, the term Silk Road has had a popular and academic appeal, suggestive of an era of premodern globalization in which China played a central role.  Silk Road books, journals, exhibitions, conferences, and institutes are increasingly commonplace across Asia, North America, and Europe.  This talk introduces the modern idea of the Silk Road as a term first coined by a German geographer in 1877.  It sketches the early translation and circulation of the term in colonial geography, before its re-appropriation in diplomatic discourses after the 1955 Bandung Conference and Nixon’s 1972 visit to China.  The talk then addresses the idea of Silk Road studies as an academic field.  Despite a general familiarity with what now falls under Silk Road studies (e.g., Central Asian art; Dunhuang manuscripts; contemporary Chinese geopolitics), insufficient attention has been paid to its potential parameters or usefulness.  I ask:  as what kind of heuristic device has the Silk Road served, and in which disciplines?  Is a more defined or institutionalized field of Silk Road studies desirable?  If so, which model should it follow, and which other fields should it position itself with or against (e.g. Area Studies, postcolonial studies, comparative literature)?

Tamara Chin received her BA from Harvard College in Classics and Literature and PhD from U.C. Berkeley in Comparative Literature (classical Chinese, Greek, Latin).  She recently published “Savage Exchange:  Han Imperialism, Chinese Literary Style, and the Economic Imagination “ (Harvard, 2014).

Exciting lectures coming up:

Stephen F. Teiser, Professor, Princeton University
“The Origins of the Dunhuang Manuscripts”
Friday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m. (Note new day)
Knight Building, 521 Memorial Way, Room 102

Zhijian Qiao, Ph.D. candidate in History, Stanford University
“’The Tea Road’:  Shanxi Merchants and the Expansion of Chinese Trading Network in the Mongolian Steppe”
Thursday, May 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Knight Building, 521 Memorial Way, Room 102

Tamara Chin and Stephen Teiser’s talks are co-sponsored by the Silk Road Foundation, CEAS, and the Ho Center for Buddhist Studies at Stanford University.

TRANSLATION COURSE

Announcement: Summer School in Buddhist Translation Studies with Gregory
Forgues

University of Vienna, Sept. 14–25, 2015

The Practice of Translating Buddhist Texts

Sponsored by the Khyentse Foundation Buddhist Translation Studies (BTS)
Program at the University of Vienna

Large collections of Buddhist texts available in Tibetan and Sanskrit
continue to remain untranslated. As a wider range of readers show an
interest in Buddhist literature, offering translations of these works that
are both accurate and readable is becoming a central objective of Buddhist
Translation Studies.

Translating is a complex operation, a multifaceted process in which both
theoretical aspects and practical methods are important to improve the
quality of a translator’s work. In the course of this summer school at
Vienna University, we will explore theoretical issues regarding the
translation of canonical texts together with the use of practical tools
needed for the activity of professional translators of Buddhist
literature.

New tools, such as corpus-based and computer-assisted translation software
as well as translation memories, are now available to facilitate the work
of translators. In addition, online projects regarding Buddhist
terminology have been recently implemented. All these options make the use
of corpus-linguistic methods particularly relevant to improve the quality
of translations. The focus of the course will be on Mahāyāna sūtras, such
as the Saṃdhinirmocana Sūtra. We will compare various available
translations and discuss the choices made by translators. We will also
refer to texts from genres specific to Tibetan literature in order to
illustrate particular translation issues.

Participants will have the chance to practice and enhance their skills
through active in-class translation and group discussions.

Course Instructor: Mag. Gregory Forgues (Vienna University / 84000)

Language of instruction: English

Prerequisites: 4 semesters Sanskrit and/or Tibetan

Course Fee: none

Application Deadline: Sept 12, 2015

¿Es China la salvación de Grecia?,

El tira y afloja entre Atenas y Bruselas tiene proyecciones significativas en otras capitales más allá de la Unión Europea. La alusión a Pekín —al igual que Moscú— como una alternativa de financiamiento de las depauperadas arcas griegas se antoja, no obstante, complicada. Ello a pesar de que no es precisamente liquidez lo que falta en las cuentas chinas y que Grecia ha ganado en importancia estratégica para China de forma notable en los últimos años. A la gratitud por la solidaridad griega en la evacuación de sus ciudadanos durante la guerra contra Gadafi en Libia, por ejemplo, se une su condición de nudo referencial en la Ruta Marítima de la Seda, un proyecto estrella de las nuevas autoridades chinas.
