Item description for Critical Zone 2: A Forum of Chinese and Western Knowledge by Q. S. Tong, Wang Shouren & Douglas Kerr...

'Critical Zone 2 confirms the success of the inaugural volume. Focusing on a twenty-first century paradigm of comparative AND globalized cultural studies, Critical Zone takes direction from a distinctly Sinicized historical tradition. Testifying to an ascendant China, this "Forum of Chinese and Western Knowledge" also expropriates, re-orients, and indigenizes comparative cultural studies with new, sharp edges, engaging and challenging critical workers from the West. "Local particularities" are understood rightly through a global vocabulary. Critical Zone is an ambitious contemporary intertext, a forum for dialogue in which Chinese and Western scholars and theorists can learn from and about each other. ' - Shirley Geok-lin Lim, Professor of English, University of California, Santa Barbara The first part of Critical Zone 2 includes original essays that deal with the concept and practice of "empire," as a collective response to the question of how imperial formations and operations, in the past and at present, should be examined in a larger context of international politics. The second part translates from the Chinese essays that bear on two contemporary debates in China: one on the canonicity of Lu Xun and the other on the problem of how to reform Peking University in the context of globalization. A contextualizing introduction is provided for each debate.
