Yachao Sun is an assistant professor in the Language and Culture Center at Duke Kunshan University.

Abstract:

Translingual theories have been proposed and implemented to respond to the increasing linguacultural diversity in today’s classrooms. However, the ‘trans-’ concepts have elicited some concerns and the findings of ‘trans-’ pedagogies vary from facilitating to undermining teaching and learning. This presentation will introduce the research trends and pedagogical implications of translingual studies on writing by analyzing peer-reviewed journal articles published from 2011 to 2021, during which ‘trans-’ studies on writing experienced rapid development in its conceptualization and implementation.

Statelessness in Asia, Australia and the Pacific during the Global Second World War

The Humanities Research Center is pleased to announce the launch of research project: “Statelessness in Asia, Australia and the Pacific during the Global Second World War,” led by Kolleen Guy and Jay Winter.

In this research project, we interrogate the category of statelessness, in the hope of adding a new dimension to the history of refugees in the Second World War.  Statelessness is a form of social and political exclusion inflicted on German Jews after 1935 and on Austrian Jews after Anschluss in 1938.  It entailed loss of citizenship, or loss of standing with respect to the state and its power to protect its inhabitants.  In 1941, German and formerly Austrian Jews lost their right to nationality.  That is, on racial grounds, they were cast out from the German nation.  Having neither citizenship nor nationality, German Jews were stateless.  By the time approximately 20,000 German and Austrian Jews sought a safe haven in Shanghai in the early 1940s, they were no longer refugees; they were stateless people.
