Episode 9 | 从Papi酱聊到美国夫人:女权主义者可以是任何人

今天,在我们所熟悉的大部分社会和文化中,子女大多冠父姓;在有些国家,女性结婚后从夫姓的做法也很普遍。不论时空变化,冠姓作为法律规范、习俗以及生活实践,始终与权力和身份息息相关。知道这些,并不能阻止我们上个月看到papi酱上热搜的时候一,脸,懵,圈。为什么仅仅因为让孩子随了父姓,papi酱就“独立女性人设崩塌”?为什么一条平常不过的微博,能引发网友们的大讨论?这其中彰显出女性群体内部怎样的分歧和张力?冠姓在其它一些国家和文化中有怎样的习俗?本期播客,我们从papi酱这一热点出发,聊了聊关于冠姓、女性角色以及女权主义身份认同的问题

Episode 8 | Art in Crisis: From AIDS to 9/11 to COVID-19

Art-making as a political action can be healing and powerful, albeit its paradox and limitations. From AIDS to 9/11 to the current pandemic, art allows people to negotiate the past and present crises. It creates ripples in us that extend to places oceans away, and to another suffering human being. What are the differences and similarities of art-making in these crises? How is art able to relate to people? What are the moral responsibilities in engaging with aesthetics against the backdrop of great human suffering? In early April, we invited a literature student and an artist to talk to us about these questions. 

Episode 7 | Higher Education Insiders: Crossing the River by Feeling the Stones

For global universities that celebrate and rely on diversity, international mobility and cross-border exchange, there are extra layers of the COVID-19 impact. Confronted with the harsh realities of travel restrictions and border control, the foreign and study-abroad student populations have experienced a series of non-voluntary movements and emotional turmoil. How are universities in China and the U.S. responding to the unprecedented challenges? In dealing with the crisis, how are student affairs professionals “crossing the river by feeling the stones”? In early April, we spoke with three higher ed insiders, and this issue presents the highlights from our conversations. 

Episode 6 | Xenophobia in the Time of Culture, Race and Stigma

A panel discussion: “Xenophobia in the Time of Coronavirus: Culture, Race & Stigma.” The panelists discussed the social, political and historical contexts in which China’s citizens, members of its diaspora and people of Asian descent have been stigmatized as carriers of contagion in the time of COVID-19. Looking at both history and the current phenomenon, the panelists examined narratives that link the imagining of an infectious disease with the imagining of “the other.” In addition, they commented on the recent reports of xenophobic incidents targeting African nationals in China, highlighting the historical and psychological roots of racial prejudice.

Episode 5 | “一个九岁的小朋友,像明晃晃的小行星在你身边燃烧”

新冠肺炎疫情让许多家庭体验了长时间的密集相处。对于有的人来说,这是久违的沟通感情的契机。对另外一些人来说,从早到晚与家人捆绑是令人抓狂的事。某微信公众号发布上海代市长任职讲话的消息时,家长们的留言分成立场鲜明的两派,从中可以看出家长们的不同心态。本期播客的连线发生在3月,我们与菁,Lesley,Judy,David聊了聊疫情期间家人的相处、伴侣的分工、孩子的教育、代际间的矛盾等等。TA们的分享里交织着羁绊、欢乐、拉扯、慰藉和哭笑不得。也许,家就是这些的总和。

Episode 4 | We Must Love One Another or Die

In this special episode, we want to take the time to mourn, commemorate, and remember the lost lives in the COVID-19 pandemic. The British-American poet Wystan Hugh Auden wrote the poem “September 1, 1939” in the wake of World War 2. This provocative poem expresses the poet’s deep disappointment, exasperation, and sharp critique, with hope rendered more salient in the last two stanzas. This poem sheds light on how we might remember and reflect and respond to the current pandemic.

Episode 3 | We Shall Still Wish. We Shall Still Sing.

In the past issues, we have attempted to speak to our readers not only through text but also through thoughtfully selected music. In this issue, we share with you a playlist of the eight songs that have been included in some previous posts. Of course, by doing this we are trying to give ourselves a much needed break. It can also be a much needed opportunity for you to look back at some of our earlier content. Click that “play” button. Let’s unwind, recharge and carry on.

Episode 2 | “To Write Poetry After Auschwitz Is Barbaric” – Is Literature Barbaric in the Time of Coronavirus?

Three conversations, four cities, five poets/translators – About poetry and literature in the time of coronavirus.

*Conversations in Chinese.

Episode 1 | The Praised, The Displayed, The Neglected

In this very first episode of our show, we present you an online panel discussion named “Women in the Time of Coronavirus: Action, Contribution and Media Representation.” Guest panelists are Alex Li, editor-in-chief of BiedeGirls; Sakura Chan, founder of GirlSUP Shanghai; and Jing Wang, a postdoctoral fellow at NYU Shanghai. Along with Joyce Tan, moderator of the discussion, the three panelists shared their observations and thoughts on the COVID-19 outbreak through the lens of gender. Starting with the neglected needs of female medical workers on the front line, the panelists had a discussion on gender culture, media representation, civil society, and other social issues that intersect with gender.
