Das Kapital, painted by a China man.

Time:14:00 on Friday, December 24th.

Location:Bilibili

Guest:Dai Dunbang (painter), Shen Jialu (writer) and Ma Shanglong (writer)

In addition to creating classic images such as A Dream of Red Mansions, Water Margin, Jin Ping Mei, Liaozhai, The Journey to the West and Tao Te Ching, Dai Dunbang also created Marx’s Das Kapital into a picture book, creating 60 masterpieces in 800 days, realizing the long-cherished wish of a China painter for half a century. He read Das Kapital many times and searched for information in many places, often getting up at 3: 30 in the morning to conceive and create. Why did a China painter paint Das Kapital, and how many hardships did ordinary people experience? At the lecture site, two writers in Dai Dunbang and Shanghai, Shen Jialu and Ma Shanglong, who are also "iron fans" of Mr. Dai, will tell you all about it.

Photography in the Forbidden City: Charm, Secularity and Visual Culture in Modern China

Time:December 24th (Friday) 19:00-21:00.

Location:Tencent conference (ID: 60878953558)

Speaker:Jun-jian Liang (Associate Professor, School of Journalism and Communication, Tsinghua University)

During the late Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China, the Forbidden City changed from a functional political building to a memorial historical building and cultural and cultural unit. In the historical process of China’s modernization, the functional changes of the Forbidden City are intertwined with the cultural practice of modern photography, which affects the reconstruction of the architectural space and meaning space of the Forbidden City. Through the investigation of anthropological photography, tourism photography and news photography related to the Forbidden City in this period, we can find that photography dispelled the charm of the Forbidden City as a secret palace and turned it into a secular, barren and occupied space. On the other hand, anthropology and journalism have transformed the Forbidden City into a cultural landscape and a national symbol, thus giving the Forbidden City a new charm. In this sense, photography is not only a medium to dispel the old charm, but also can produce and reconstruct new charm.

Deleuze’s "Abstract Machine"

Time:December 24th (Friday) 19:00-21:00.

Location:Tencent conference (ID: 33075279867)

Speaker:Li Kelin (Associate Professor and Doctoral Supervisor, School of Philosophy, China Renmin University)

Abstract machine is an important concept in Deleuze’s later theory. In Thousand Plateau, he replaced the desire machine in Anti-Oedipus with abstract machine, trying to separate the active escape line from the passive generation of human beings. In Anti-Oedipus, Deleuze compares the automaticity of production with machines, fills the internal power of production with desire, and combines the two to illustrate the existence of individuals in society with "desire machine". Correspondingly, the "abstract machine" points out the absolute surplus phenomenon of the desire machine in social production, while the "abstract" shows the pure material out of form, while the "machine" turns to the birth of a new form. From the perspective of ontology, "abstract machine" resists the solidification of existence with eternal rheology. From the perspective of vitality theory, "abstract machine" opposes the transcendence of ideas with the immanence of experience. Deleuze explored the possibility of resolving the confrontation between life and machine through this concept, and also intended to respond to the question that always lingered above the limit of "solution domain". The discussion of life initiative through "abstract machine" is not only the theme of Deleuze’s later philosophy, but also constitutes an important trend in the development of contemporary French philosophy.

Fame on Paper: On Education and Justice from Children of Poor Families Going to College

Time:December 24th (Friday) 19:00-21:00.

Location:Tencent conference (ID: 931714617)

Guest:Tian Lei (Professor, School of Law, East China Normal University), Huang Deng (Scholar, Non-fiction Writer), Guo Fei (Assistant Professor, Tsinghua University Institute of Education), Wu Qiuxiang (Lecturer, School of Education, China Renmin University), Yue Ying (Master, Tsinghua University Institute of Marxism).

"Admission is not equal to integration." This sentence was published in "Poor Children Go to College: Why American Elite Universities Turn Their Back on Poor Students". The book is frequently mentioned. When poor students break through the thorns and knock on the university gate, it does not mean that the standard plot of "counterattack" in life will be started from now on. A more realistic scenario is that when you open this door, there is still a road full of unknowns in front of you. Some people will rise from there, while others will gradually give up on themselves in the constant fall. What caused this difference? This salon will invite a number of guests from different disciplines, starting with the book "Children from Poor Families Go to College", to discuss the issues of education and justice, and to compare and think about them in a broader social and historical perspective.

Hangzhou | Customs and Boundaries —— Thinking from the litigation files

Time:Monday, December 27th, 19:00-21:00.

Location:Room 1127, Creative Building A, Zijingang West District, Zhejiang University, No.866 Yuhangtang Road, Xihu District

Speaker:Du Zhengzhen (Professor, School of History, Zhejiang University)

In litigation files, it is easy to see that etiquette, law and custom together constitute a system of social rules, but what is more interesting is their historical evolution relationship. Disputes over the ownership of mountain fields are also very common. The fierce competition around the boundary confirmation is behind the history of the boundary from scratch, from oral to written, from private agreement to cadastre. Starting from people’s actual operation and expression in litigation, these two examples may lead us to think about the historical process and power mechanism of how people obtain "certainty" and "consensus" in traditional society.

News observation: "quantity" and "quality" rise together, and the consumption of new energy vehicles in China is getting better and better

CCTV News:Data show that by the end of the first quarter of this year, the cumulative promotion of new energy vehicles in China is expected to exceed 10 million. The relevant person in charge of the National Development and Reform Commission said on March 26th that the new energy automobile industry in China has gradually entered the market-driven stage. In the new development era, vehicle enterprises will not add new production capacity until the existing base reaches a reasonable scale. While promoting the accelerated development of the new energy automobile industry, it pays more attention to the overall improvement of quality and brand.

The proportion of private consumption of new energy vehicles increased from 47% to 78%.

Lin Nianxiu, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, said that in 2021, new energy vehicles will be driven by both market and policy. Compared with the initial period of the Thirteenth Five-Year Plan, the proportion of private consumption has increased from 47% to 78%, and the proportion of private consumption in non-restricted cities has increased from 40% to 70%. While the degree of marketization is increasing year by year, it is necessary to make overall arrangements for the high-quality development of the new energy automobile industry.

Lin Nianxiu, Deputy Director of the National Development and Reform Commission:Guide industries to gather in areas and main bodies with good development foundation and full capacity utilization, and focus on building internationally competitive industrial clusters in the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Chengdu-Chongqing and other regions. (In addition, vehicle enterprises should highlight the key layout, rely on the development of existing production bases, and no new production capacity will be distributed until the existing bases reach a reasonable scale.

China strengthens clean-up and rectification of illegal projects of new energy vehicles.

Lin Nianxiu said that China will also strengthen the clean-up and rectification of illegal projects of new energy vehicles, and investigate and deal with illegal behaviors such as unapproved construction, zero-batch construction, and construction while approving. At the same time, standardize the merger and reorganization of vehicle enterprises, and vigorously promote the withdrawal of backward enterprises and ineffective production capacity.

By the end of the first quarter, the cumulative promotion is expected to exceed 10 million vehicles.

It is reported that by the end of the first quarter of this year, the cumulative promotion of new energy vehicles in China is expected to exceed 10 million. New progress has been made in key technologies of new energy vehicles, positive progress has been made in sodium ion batteries and modular power exchange, and the computing power of artificial intelligence has reached the international advanced level. At the same time, new energy vehicles still have some shortcomings in terms of quality and safety, low-temperature adaptability, etc. The integrated development of electrification, intelligence and networking needs to be continuously deepened.

Xin Guobin, Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology:In 2021, China enterprises obtained more than 30,000 patents related to new energy vehicles, accounting for 70% of the global total, and saw new achievements in comprehensive income. By the end of 2021, the cumulative consumption of new energy vehicles was about 1.6 trillion yuan, driving the output value of upstream and downstream industrial chains to about 4.8 trillion yuan, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 100 million tons.

We will continue to strengthen top-level design and optimize supporting policies.

Lin Nianxiu said that the steady growth of the automobile industry has provided strong support for reviving the industrial economy. In particular, the development of new energy vehicles in China has achieved new breakthroughs and become a new bright spot for the high-quality development of the automobile industry. However, problems such as blind investment and disorderly development of new energy vehicles still exist to varying degrees. In the future, we will continue to strengthen the top-level design, continuously optimize supporting policies such as scientific and technological innovation, industrial layout, tax incentives, and infrastructure construction for charging and replacing electricity, and pay more attention to the overall improvement of quality and brand while promoting the accelerated development and growth of the new energy vehicle industry.
