Abstract [en]

In this chapter, the author traces some influential voices of reformists/writers in manifests calling for fiction written in the vernacular, by the early reformist Liang Qichao, and by reformists within the New Culture Movement, such as Hu Shi, Chen Duxiu and Lu Xun, who promoted “modern” Chinese literature written in the vernacular. The aim is to show how their reformist discourse on language and literature is embodied in and confronts traditional values within a work of fiction, Lu Xun’s short story A Madman’s Diary, how this literary work manifests the “power struggle” between the “traditional” classical, literary language and the “modern” written vernacular in China in the early twentieth century.

Abstract [en]

The world’s first freedom of information act: His Majesty’s Gracious Ordinance Relating to Freedom of Writing and of the Press was passed in the Swedish Diet in 1766. It is hard to imagine today that this had anything to do with China, but Swedish politicians, such as Anders Nordencrantz and Anders Chydenius, drew some of their arguments from Jean Baptiste Du Halde’s Description géographique, historique, chronologique, politique, et physique de l’empire de la Chine et de la Tartarie chinoise, claiming that the freedom of writing and of information existed in China since ancient times, and was the very reason for China’s prosperity and political stability (as has been discussed in publications by Marie-Christine Skuncke). In this paper I compare the political pamphlets written by Nordencrantz: Thoughts about the Freedom to use Reason, Pens and Printing, and how far this Freedom should be extended in a free Society, along with its Consequences and Chydenius: An Account of the Chinese Freedom of Writing: Translated from Danish, with Du Halde’s work and with Danish politician Frederik Lütken’s “Some Chinese rules of State and economic maxims or customs: extracts from Father Du Halde”, from which these Swedish politicians drew their inspiration with regard to the image of China and of the freedom of writing in China.

Abstract [en]

Today we often talk about globalization as if it was a recent phenomenon, although this is a process that has been going on since ancient times. Few people today realize the significance of the political and cultural influence of China in the Nordic countries in the 18th century, and that the image of China was of crucial importance in the political debates on freedom of the press and of information in the Nordic countries, as has been discussed in several publications by Professor Marie-Christine Skuncke, Uppsala University. The French Jesuit Jean Baptiste Du Halde’s Description géographique et historique de l’empire del la Chine et del la Tartarie chinoise (1735) had created an image of China among Europeans as a rich, populous and peaceful country with a stable political system. Based on Du Halde’s descriptions of China, several politicians in the Nordic countries working against censorship, Anders Nordencrantz (Swedish politician and businessman), Anders Chydenius (Finnish priest, former student of Uppsala University) and Frederik Lütken (Danish navy officer, economist and politician), claimed that China’s prosperity and stability was caused by the existence of a freedom of writing and of information in China since ancient times. This image of China was used as an argument for a Freedom of the Press Act in Sweden. Largely through the work of Chydenius in the Swedish Diet, His majesty’s Gracious Ordinance Relating to Freedom of Writing and of the Press was passed in the Swedish Diet in 1766. It was the first Freedom of information act in the world. I will compare the arguments used in the political pamphlets written by Nordencrantz, Chydenius and Lütken, in relation to their source, Du Halde’s Description del la Chine, and in the context of the political climate and debates at the time.
