Topic: Coping with climate change: China’s efforts and their sociological significance

Abstract: Investigating climate change from a sociological perspective does not mean focusing on the natural fact of climate change, but analysing climate change as a social phenomenon, with an emphasis on the social complexity of this topic. First, the sociological perspective does not simply assume the authenticity of the issue of climate change, and is instead concerned with who is talking about ‘climate change’ and how and why, by analysing the social process of constructing the topic of climate change. Second, sociology does not believe that assuming that, from the point of view of natural sciences, climate change is a tangible and serious environmental issue will necessarily lead members of society to form a universal consensus. Moreover, from a sociological perspective, even though the severity of damage caused by climate change has shaped social consensus to a certain degree, it will not inevitably yield practical responses, and one of the main objectives of sociological studies is precisely to analyse in depth and in detail these influential factors. Only by reflecting and adopting a genuine academic, sociological perspective, researching in depth to what extent and how climate change has already become a new ‘social fact’, fully understanding the difference in social reactions to climate change, focusing more on the dissemination and negotiation of extensive and effective information, giving more importance to formulating a reasonable policy portfolio, eliminating social injustice and other social disparities, in order to concentrate global cooperation in response to climate change, will it be possible to thoroughly show the social complexity of climate change and to adduce the contributions the study of climate change and the formulation of climate policies from social scientific disciplines.

TopicAn interoperation of the Paris Agreement and what the implications are for international policy and for China

Abstract: The 2015 Paris Agreement breaks new ground in international climate policy, by acknowledging the primacy of domestic politics in climate change and allowing countries to set their own level of ambition for climate change mitigation. It creates a framework for making voluntary pledges that can be compared and reviewed internationally, in the hope that global ambition can be increased through a process of ‘naming and shaming’. By sidestepping distributional conflicts, the Paris Agreement manages to remove one of the biggest barriers to international climate cooperation. It recognizes that none of the major powers can be forced into drastic emissions cuts. However, instead of leaving mitigation efforts to an entirely bottom-up logic, it embeds country pledges in an international system of climate accountability, thus offering the chance of more durable international cooperation. However, it is far from clear whether the treaty can actually deliver on the urgent need to de-carbonize the global economy. Much will depend on policy developments in China, the United States and other major emitters. This talk reviews the implications of the Paris Agreement for future climate policy, both in China and internationally.

Topic: Discursive constructions around the low carbon economy in the People’s Daily

Abstract: Under the premise of climate change, the low carbon economy emerged as the new form of economic model at the beginning of 21st century. There are various studies from different disciplines on the move to a low carbon economy, but few from the discourse perspective. This study is based on the reports on the low carbon economy in the People’s Daily (2000-2015). In order to observe discursive constructions of the low carbon economy in different periods of the People’s Daily and explore the social reality reflected by discourses on the topic, this research merges the corpus approach and discourse studies. It is found that discourses around the low carbon economy penetrate into all aspects of society, setting the direction for social change. Low carbon discourse and social interaction play a positive role in coping with global climate change. The agenda of the low carbon economy set in this newspaper effectively conveys the Chinese government’s voice, and plays an important role in shaping public low carbon awareness.

Dr Fang Wang, English Department, Birmingham University, UK. Her areas of research include critical discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, social constructionism and sociolinguistics. Her current research focuses on the discourses of climate change in media coverage, the social construction of depression in British and Chinese newspapers and the media use of the antidepressants of pharmaceutical promotional literature in popular and scientific discourses. Her research aims to demonstrate the viability of a novel linguistic methodology – corpus linguistics – for social research, and to deliver a major contribution to our understanding of the link between discourse and the social reality of the objects under discussion. 

Topic: A corpus-based discourse analysis of global warming in The Guardian, the Washington Post and the People’s Daily

Abstract: This paper aims at investigating the meanings of ‘global warming’ in three discourses represented by three prestigious newspapers: The Guardian, the Washington Post and the People’s Daily. A diachronic corpus that includes the articles in which global warming occurs at least once from 1984 to 2015 is built up and this corpus is further divided into different time periods, based on frequency ‘explosions’ in the articles concerned. Thus, comparisons of the constructions of the meanings of ‘global warming’ both between three newspapers and between different time periods are presented. It is found that in The Guardian discourse, global warming is represented as an accepted fact, while the Washington Post discourse remains sceptical. The People’s Daily also constructs global warming as an irrefutable fact, and highlights China’s contribution to solve this problem. More recently, the Washington Post constructs global warming as a serious problem, whereas The Guardian focuses on finding solutions for it. The People’s Daily emphasizes that China will play an active role in using new energy and clean technologies to combat global warming and addresses the importance of international collaboration. This paper argues that corpus plays a central role in discovering meanings of discourse objects.

Dr Carmen Dayrell is a Senior Research Associate at CASS, Lancaster University, and a corpus linguist. Her most recent research projects have used corpus-assisted discourse analysis to examine the interaction between society and the news media in various areas of pressing concern such as climate change, extreme weather events, urban violence, religion and immigration.

Topic: Changing climates: discourses around climate change in British and Brazilian news media

Abstract: This study explores the interactions between society and media coverage in the context of climate change. To this end, we carry out a large-scale comparative analysis of the discourses around climate change within these two major economies: one in which the notion of global warming is widely accepted (Brazil) and another in which climate change scepticism is increasingly prominent in the public sphere (Britain). Our ultimate purpose is to gain a better understanding of the role of the news media in shaping public opinion. By combining critical discourse analysis and corpus linguistics methods, we examine how climate change has been framed in the news media within Brazil and Britain in the past decade or so (2003-2013). The data consists of 19,268 articles from major Brazilian newspapers (10.9 million words) and 85,925 articles from major British newspapers (61.8 million words). This talk will report our findings regarding key elements of the media treatment of climate change issues within each society.

Topic: CLIMATE presentation: four countries' views of climate change

Abstract: This paper will report on further analysis of research (Grundmann & Scott 2014) into corpora of climate change involving France, Germany, UK and USA. Here we bring the data up to the end of 2015. Data are from the Nexis database of news text and the issues involve the different treatments of climate change issues in various countries. The procedures involve the role of key players identified through named entity recognition; key issues and themes and how these are distributed in time lines during the 21st century.

Topic: The role of China: a post-2030 perspective on global sustainability, science and a new leadership with a collaborative approach to global governance

Abstract: A post-SDG perspective is needed to ensure long-term sustainability and reduce catastrophic risks. The SDGs have a 2030 time horizon and that is only 14 years from now. Much of the infrastructure and many of the initiatives we build and create today will be with us for decades. Hence, measures must be taken to ensure that work with the SDGs are not undermining the long-term sustainability goals or creating even bigger problems. The SDGs are particularly interesting in two ways. First, there is a disconnection between many of the SDG goals and the targets for those goals that the world now focuses on. Second, there are many global challenges that are not included in the SDGs that are already important today but will be much more important beyond 2030 (e.g. digital privacy, surveillance, nanotechnology and synthetic biology). There are also global challenges like asteroid impacts, global pandemics and cybercrimes that, based on a risk assessment, already today require significant global action. The solution to the problems above includes a scientific approach, similar to how China approaches development today. Further, we need to look beyond international competition, as is the case now, and create a new generation of institutions based on global cooperation, similar to how China has framed its peaceful development agenda.

Topic: The rural environment issue from the perspective of the state/farmers interaction: the case study of Yanguan Town, Haining, in Northern Zhejiang

Abstract: This paper examines the environmental issues in the Chinese countryside over the last 50 years, by looking at the case of the Yanguan area of Haining city in northern Zhejiang. This article suggests that the environmental issue during the reform period is closely related with the people’s commune system. In their interaction, the state and the farmers created a ‘tragedy of the commons’. After the reforms and opening up, the actions of the state and the farmers purely pursuing the economic development brought more serious rural environmental issues. In the past 10 years, the efforts of the local government in Haining have made people see the hope of improving rural environment. However, the task of building a beautiful countryside is still very difficult.

Topic: China–Europa Social Forum: from social innovation to civilization innovation, in the case of climate change

Abstract: The China–Europa Social Forum was jointly launched in October 2005 by the Association of Chinese Intellectuals in Europe and the Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation for Human Progress, with the help of the Henry Fok Foundation and the Macau Foundation. Jean Bertoin, former delegate of the EU to the WTO Paul Tran Van-Thinh, and former Chinese ambassador to France Wu Jianmin, were among the founders of the Forum. The Forum borrows from the historical process of joint peace creation in Europe, striving to establish a new channel and new model of understanding and communication between the two societies and cultures, through an all-around dialogue between China and Europe, and not only through diplomatic, trading and academic exchanges.

Since 2012, considering judgments about the loss of meaning in the contemporary world and the scarcity of peaceful factors, the China–Europa Social Forum has firmly asserted that addressing climate change and promoting a green transition for China and the world is not only a necessity for humanity in addressing climate abnormalities and the destruction of ecology, but is also an effective way of making humanity come together and walk on a peaceful, logical path. Since then, the China–Europa Social Forum has launched a great dialogue centred around climate issues, calling on and promoting systemic reforms, accepting all kinds of rational demands and calling for the establishment of a new governance model for the future. In December 2014, the China–Europa Social Forum on ‘Addressing Climate Change, Rethinking the Development Model and Reconstructing Civil Ethics’ held four conferences in Paris, as well as six other European cities. After a year of extensive discussion, the Common Text, jointly drafted by China and Europe, was approved during this conference, which is the first time in history that a Sino–European NGO produced a common text regarding climate issues.

In 2015, the 21st Global Climate Summit on global emission reduction targets reached an historical agreement, turning a new page in the history of the humanity’s consensus on protecting the climate system. In 2016, in occasion of the World Summit on Climate Change in Nantes, the China–Europa Social Forum, in cooperation with Chinese and European social, educational, public welfare and academic organizations, launched the International Campus for an Ecological Civilization programme. This is not only a forum for discussing concrete ways of implementing a new model of world governance, but also represents the pursuit of innovation for human civilization. On the basis of the Campus of an Ecological Civilization, by means of social dialogue, the forum calls for a humanity that transcends rural or industrial civilizations, moving towards a new ecological civilization, fundamentally reversing the pattern of unlimited demands on our planet that humanity adopted after the Industrial Revolution, building a symbiosis among humanity and the environment, developing and keeping step with a new model of civilization.

Topic: The new meaning of the global. How environmental movements and challenges have shaped the ‘global’ in the early 21st century

Abstract: Social movements are both products and producers of global transformations. Both the meaning and the reality of the global have considerably evolved since the start of the century and environmentalist movements have taken an active part in it.

Drawing on extensive fieldwork with a range of movements and actors (local food movements, young environmental activists, de-growth, ‘buen vivir’ in Ecuador, ENGOs, political ecology intellectuals in Europe and Latin America ...), I analyse how environmental movements have contributed to frame and shape the ‘global’, by focusing successively in three of its interconnected meanings.

1. After a rapid globalization of social movements in the late 1990s and early 2000s, environmental movements now combine it with the will to put ‘relocalization’ at core of their practices, claims and alternative societal projects.

2. Actors in all sectors of the environmental movements foster more holistic approaches of local and global challenges. They link climate change with social and economic issues, connect daily-life consumption with citizenship and personal responsibility and promote a holistic approach to the ‘good life’ that challenges the concept of development.

3. Finally, these actors contribute to a shift from ‘globalization’ to what Albrow (1996) has called the ‘Global Age’. They promote worldviews, practices and epistemologies that take into account two major features of this global age: an increasing interdependence at the scale of humanity and the finitude of the planet.

A study of the practices, claims and meanings of these actors provide us with empirical material to understand today's world. It also points to some major challenges of social sciences that remain deeply rooted in the modern project, unlimited growth and permanent expansion.

Topic:Social uptake on the notion of sustainability in China

Abstract: A proper delivery of the UN’s sustainable development goals not only requires state directives, institutional manoeuvres and industrial cooperation but also relies on winning understanding and support from the general public. Few would dispute that how individuals interpret their ‘fair’ entitlement to resources, what values they associate with consumption preferences and how they weigh the importance of their contribution to a better society all have exponential cumulative impact on China’s sustainable future. Yet steering these social perceptions and mobilizing collective actions require more than simple top-down instructions or nationwide education. It demands an engaged approach that empathizes with citizens’ intimate experience of environmental and social vulnerabilities. Drawing on findings from China’s environmental movement and consumer-oriented ecological agriculture campaigns, this talk discusses a general mentality underlying Chinese society’s uptake of the issue of sustainability and its implications for achieving policy objectives.

Dr Olaf Corry, Associate Professor of International Relations at the Department of Politics, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. His research interests include international environmental sociology, the politics of geoengineering (‘climate engineering’), global governance and social movements. He has published on global environmental politics, the politics of risk and international theory, including Constructing a Global Polity: Theory, discourse and governance (2013), Constructing a Global Polity (2006).

Topic: Societal multiplicity in the global polity: conditions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals

Abstract: The Sustainable Development Goals set targets for action on global problems, while the division of the world into different societies means that the problem of 'the international' has not gone away. Yet societal multiplicity is also a potential opportunity. SDGs, by being defined, specified and measurable, change the conditions under which global politics is enacted, contributing to a patchy but emerging global polity that coexists with the world of great powers and statehood.

Topic: TCM diagnostic methods, multimodal data fusion and TCM ontology: case studies

Abstract: The diagnostic methods in traditional Chinese medicine, known as “四诊”, are construed as five-modality ways of collecting data. They are (1) wang 望, examining visually; (2) wen1 闻1, examining olfactorily; (3) wen2 闻2, examining auditorily, (4) wen 问,examining verbally, and (5) qie 切, examining haptically. These modalities are the TCM doctor’s five ways of interacting interpersonally with the patient in situ.  The data thus collected are first of all represented in the doctor’s mind, and are integrated as a whole, which is, in multimodal corpus linguistics, called human multimodal data fusion. The fused data has to be evaluated for the purpose of making a diagnosis. The cognitive evaluation brings the doctor’s professional knowledge into operation. This cognitive knowledge is modelled in multimodal corpus linguistics in terms of ontology building. This paper presents a conceptual model of formalizing the diagnostic methods, data fusion and ontology. Two case studies are presented to illustrate how the conceptual model operates.

Professor Letian Zhang, Professor of Sociology at the School of Social Development and Public Policy of Fudan University, Director of the Centre for Social and Cultural Anthropology, Director of the Contemporary China Social Life Data and Research Centre, China; Co-Director of CCPN Global, UK.

Topic: Collective and individual memories in contemporary China: the collection and academic value of material on Chinese social life

Abstract: In the last half century and more, China produced tens of thousands of folk materials, unmatched by all other countries in the world. They hold the truth about contemporary Chinese social life. They are the most precious collective and individual memories of today’s Chinese people. The Contemporary China Social Life Data and Research Centre, Fudan Institute of Development, accommodated the private data or folk materials that I have been collecting over the past two decades. This talk will introduce them briefly in three parts. First, Zhang Letian Lianmin Village database: this is the most comprehensive and detailed data on one village in the midst of economic, political, social and cultural change (1949-2000). Second, data on the basic work units, which consists of both figures and text documents. The collections came from Zhejiang and Jiangxi Provinces and Shanghai City, covering both official documents and records of enterprises, the minutes of meetings being the most interesting. Third, letters, diaries and work notes. For example, we collected more than 3,000 personal diaries and books of notes and more than 300,000 personal letters, including completed correspondence data, which has unrivalled value.

Afternoon session:

Chair: Yueguo Gu, Director of China Multilingual & Multimodal Corpora & Big Data Research Centre, CASS and BFSU, China

Speakers: Mike Scott, Yufang Qian, Qing Cao and Xiangqun Chang

Dr Mike Scott, Research Associate of Aston University Founder of the Lexical Analysis Software, UK.

In 2014, she was awarded as Provincial Excellent Teacher by Zhejiang Provincial Government.

Topic: Corpus approaches in media discourse studies

Abstract: The past few decades have seen corpus linguistics emerge as a new method of analysis for studying many aspects of linguistic enquiry. It has been compared to an ‘open sesame’ to a new way of thinking about language. Text corpora provide large databases of naturally occurring discourse, enabling researchers identify the actual patterns of use in a language. Corpus approach has an advantage in analysing a large quantity of texts. It is inevitably adopted as a default resource for research in which language matters. Media discourse as a particular type of language use or text and as a specific kind of sociocultural practice is important both for ‘what it reveals about a society’ and for ‘what it contributes to constructing the character of society’. It has attracted more and more scholars from different disciplines, such as journalism, sociology and politics. This talk will present three cases of corpus-based media discourse analysis.

Dr Qing Cao, Senior Lecturer in Chinese / Director of Studies in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Durham University. His research interests centre on interactions between culture, society and the mass media, with a focus on perceptions and representation between China and the West. Currently he is working on a research project that looks at representations of cultural traditions and modernity in the early 20th-century Chinese press. He is interested in how language changes reflect new formations of cultural and political identities.

Topic: A corpus-based study of late Qing press

Abstract: This paper aims to contribute to the ongoing debate about China’s 20th-century radicalism by examining the use of language in the polemic press in late Qing China. It uses a case study of the 1906-1907 press debate between the revolutionary Minbao (民报) and the constitutional monarchist Xinmin Congbao (新民丛报). The newly emergent press constitutes a fresh ‘epistemological field’, using Foucault’s term, which produces a paradigmatic shift in knowledge production at a time when China was confronted with unprecedented challenges. The study examines how imported concepts such as ‘国家’, ‘国民’, and ‘革命’ are constructed in the press by examining their discursive formations through looking at various aspects of their concordance, including collocates, patterns and clusters. By studying the press debate as a specific type of ‘discursive practice’, a process by which fresh ‘reality’ comes into being by knowledge production and circulation, this paper explores the fusion of Western imported notions and traditional Chinese meanings located in a range of key terms promoted in the late Qing press that have a lasting impact on 20th-century China.

Professor Xiangqun Chang is Director of CCPN Global - a global academic society for advancing the study of China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective, Editor of the Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP), Chief Editor of Global China Press, and Senior Consultant of Global China Unit, a knowledge based think tank for social consultancy, UK. She is also Honorary Professor of UCL (University College London); and holder of several Professorships and Senior Fellowships at Peking, Renmin, Fudan and Sun Yat-Sen Universities in China. Her academic publications amount to over two million words (in English and Chinese) including Guanxi or Li shang wanglai? --- Reciprocity, Social Support Networks, & Social Creativity in a Chinese Village (Chinese 2009, English 2010).

Topic: A brief introduction to corpus and Chinese social sciences studies, based on the book Guanxi or Li shang wanglai?: Reciprocity, Social Support Networks and Social Creativity in a Chinese Village (2010).

Abstract: In recent years, social scientific qualitative research has faced the challenge of analysing large quantities of electronic text. Corpus refers to a large collection of well-sampled and processed electronic texts, on which language-related studies, theoretical or applied, can be conducted with the aid of computer tools. In addition, the use of discourse analysis allows researchers to carry out language-related theoretical or applied research. Such a combination of corpus-based analysis and discourse analysis has empowered traditional methodology in the humanities and social sciences. In the age of big data, it helps in the achieving research objectives, accurately, fully and in-depth. This talk will demonstrate how corpora and discourse analysis work, based on the case of a single book Guanxi or Li shang wanglai?: Reciprocity, Social Support Networks and Social Creativity in a Chinese Village.

议题: 应对气候变化:中国的努力及其社会学意义

提要: 从社会学的视角考察气候变化,并非是关注气候变化的自然事实,而是要将对气候变化的关注作为一种社会现象来分析,关注气候变化议题的社会复杂性。首先,社会学视角并不简单地假定气候变化问题的真实性,而是关心谁在说、如何说以及为什么说“气候变化”,也就是对气候变化议题建构的社会过程进行分析。其次,假定气候变化在自然科学的意义上是一种有形的、严重的环境问题,社会学也并不认为其会必然地导致社会成员形成普遍共识。再次,从社会学的角度看,即使基于气候变化的严峻性形成了一定程度的社会共识,也并不必然地导致实际的应对行动,社会学研究的重要目标之一正是对这些影响因素进行深入细致的分析。只有反思并采用真正的社会学学科视角,深入研究气候变化在多大程度上已经成为以及如何成为一种新的“社会事实”,充分认识并理解气候变化之社会反应的差异性,更加关注广泛、有效的信息传播和沟通协商,更加重视制定合理的政策组合,消除社会不平等等社会差别,以凝聚全球各国应对气候变化的合力,如此才有可能深入揭示气候变化的社会复杂性,并为气候变化研究和气候政策制定作出来自社会学学科的特别贡献。

议题:巴黎协定的执行对国际政策与中国的影响

提要:2015年巴黎协议以承认国内政治在气候变化中的重要性并允许各个国家自己应对气候变化的雄心水平,在国际气候政策上提出了新的意见。巴黎协议创造了能在国际上比较并回顾的自愿承诺的框架,其希望就是能够通过“点名羞辱”的过程中增长全球雄心。以绕开分布冲突,巴黎协议能够取消国际气候合作的最大障碍之一。它承认了不能迫切主要大国做巨大减排。然而,它并不使减灾措施遵循由底向上的逻辑,而它将国家承诺嵌入在气候国际气候问责制度中,因此它会提供更加持久国家合作的机会。然而,还完全不清楚实际上这个条约是否能够应对全球经济脱碳的紧张需要。这就有赖于中国、美国等主要排放者的政策发展。本演讲评述巴黎协议对中国和国际的未来气候政策的影响。

议题:《人民日报》对于低碳经济的话语建构

提要: 在气候变化的大背景下,21世纪初出现了低碳经济这一新的经济模式,许多学科对此进行了研究,但鲜有从话语的视角。本研究从话语研究的视角,运用语料库方法对2001年至2015年间《人民日报》关于低碳经济的报道进行了深度考察,旨在分析15年间《人民日报》围绕低碳经济的话语建构以及其与社会变迁的动态关系。研究发现,低碳话语渗透到社会的方方面面,引导着社会变革。低碳话语和社会互动在应对气候变化中起到了积极的作用。《人民日报》的低碳议程设置有效地传递了政府发声音。为形成公众的低碳意识起到了重要作用。

王芳博士,伯明翰大学英语系研究人员。她的研究兴趣包括批判话语分析、语料库语言学、社会建构、社会语言学。她目前的研究主要有:媒体关于气候变化的话语研究、中英报刊关于精神抑郁的社会建构、媒体抗抑郁药物促销的话语。她的研究旨在展示语料库语言学的方法在社会研究中的作用,以及帮助人们对话语与社会现实相互关系的理解。

议题: 全球气候变化 — 基于《卫报》、《华盛顿邮报》和《人民日报》的语料库的话语分析

提要: 这项研究旨在探究全球变暖的话语意义在三个不同的话语范围内:英国《卫报》,美国《华盛顿邮报》和中国《人民日报》有何不同的呈现。本研究所使用的大型历时语料库覆盖了从1984年到2015年三种报纸中包含全球变暖的文章;同时,为进一步有效探讨全球变暖的话语意义在近30年中所经历的发展,英国,美国和中国的子语料库依据所含文章的显著频数变化被分别切分为不同的时间段。研究发现英国《卫报》始终把全球变暖构建为不可争辩的事实,而《华盛顿邮报》在不同阶段对此持怀疑态度;中国《人民日报》则在肯定全球变暖存在的前提下强调中国在解决此问题中所起的积极作用。在最近的几年中,《华盛顿邮报》逐渐趋于认同全球变暖事实的存在,《卫报》则把重点放在解决问题的讨论上;中国《人民日报》近年来突出表示中国将积极利用新能源和新科技以对解决全球变暖问题做出积极贡献,并强调国际合作的重要性。此项研究证明了在进行话语分析揭示话语目标意义的过程中,语料库起到了关键作用。

卡门·戴雷尔博士是兰卡斯特大学语料库与社会科学研究中心高级研究员,语料库研究专家。她最近的研究项目运用语料库和话语研究结合的方法考察报刊所关注的问题,如气候变化、极端气候事件、城市暴动、宗教、移民等,揭示社会和新闻媒体的互动关系。

议题:气候变化:英国和巴西的新闻媒体围绕气候变化的话语

提要::本研究揭示在气候变化背景下社会和媒体的互动关系。我们对这两个经济体进行了大规模的话语比较研究:一个是深信气候变化现象存在(巴西),而另一个却持怀疑态度(英国)。我们的目的在于观察媒体在形成公众态度过程中起了什么样的作用?通过结合批判话语和语料库的方法,我们考察了2003年至2013年气候变化如何被英国和巴西的新闻建构。数据包括主流巴西报刊19268篇共计10,009,000字,85925篇英国主流报刊文章共计61,800,000字。本发言将报告两国媒体有关气候变化主题报道的主要内容。

议题: 中国的角度 — 2030年后以对全球治理合作方式为基础对全球可持续性、科学及新型领导的视角

提要: :我们需要可持续发展目标后的视角,以确认长期可持续性并减少灾难风险。可持续发展目标的时间范围是2030年,这就是14年以后。我们今天所建立并创造的大多基础建设与活动会持续多年几十年。因此,我们应该采取措施,来确认可持续发展目标不在损害长期可持续目标,也不在导致更大的问题。可持续发展目标之所以特别有意思,是因为两个原因。首先,很多可持续发展目标与世界正在关注的目标之间存在脱节。其次,有很多全球挑战没被包括在可持续发展目标中,但它们已非常重要,而2030年以后它们也更重要(如数字隐私、监视、纳米技术、合成生物学)。再说,根据风险评估,小行星撞击地球、全球流行病、网上犯罪等全球挑战今天就需要行动。以上问题的解决方法包括科学方式,像中国今天接近发展一样。此外,我们应该超过今天的国际竞争,而创造新型、基于全球合作的机构,像中国和平发展议程一样。

议题:国家-农民互动视角下的乡村环境问题 — 以浙北海宁市盐官镇为例

提要: 本文以浙北海宁盐官地区为例,考察半个多世纪以来中国乡村的环境问题。本文认为,前改革时期的乡村环境问题与人民公社制度密切相关,国家与农民在互动中造成了“半公用地悲剧”。改革开放以后,国家、农民单纯追求经济发展的行为导致了更严重的乡村环境问题。近10年来,海宁地方政府的努力使人们看到了改善乡村环境的希望,但美丽乡村建设的任务依然艰巨。

提要:中欧社会论坛创始于2005年10月,由欧洲华人学会和梅耶人类进步基金会联合发起,霍英东基金会与澳门基金会协助创立。论坛创始人包括法国前总理罗卡尔、欧共体创始人之一贝尔图安、欧盟前驻世贸组织代表张万亭、中国前驻法大使吴建民等。论坛以欧洲联合缔造和平历史进程为借鉴,力求通过组织中欧社会间多方位对话,在外交、通商、学术交流之外,建立社会与社会、文化与文化之间理解与沟通的新渠道和新模式。

    自2012年以来,鉴于对当今世界意义失落、和平因素稀缺的判断,中欧社会论坛认定应对气候变化、推动中国与世界的绿色转型,不仅是人类应对气候失常和地球生态毁坏所必须,也是使人类团结起来,走上和平逻辑的有效途径。自此,中欧社会论坛以气候问题为主题发起大型对话,呼吁和推动制度变革,广泛吸纳各种合理诉求,呼唤创立通向未来的新的治理模式。2014年12月,中欧社会论坛以“应对气候变化 反思发展模式 共建公民伦理”为主题在法国巴黎及其他六个欧洲城市举办第四届大会。中欧双方共同起草的应对气候变化《共识文本》历经一年的广泛讨论后,在此次会议上获得通过,这是历史上中欧民间组织达成的第一个关于气候问题的共识文本。

2015年,全球第21届气候峰会就全球减排目标达成历史性协议,揭开了人类共同维护气候系统的历史新页。2016年,以法国南特世界气候转机峰会为契机,中欧社会论坛联合中国、欧洲多家社会、教育、公益和学术组织,发起创立《蓝湾国际生态文明大学》计划。这一计划既是论坛寻找新的世界治理模式的具体落实,也是对人类文明创新的探求。以《生态文明大学》为基地,以社会对话为手段,论坛呼吁人类超越农业文明、工业文明,走向新的生态文明,从根本上扭转工业革命以来人类向地球无限索取的格局,建设人类同环境共生,发展与持续同步的新型文明模式。

演讲者: 杰弗里·普雷尔斯、 张悦悦、奥拉夫·科里

杰弗里·普雷尔斯 教授,比利时鲁汶大学全球研究院院长。他当选第47届国际社会学学会主席。与布雷诺·布林热尔一起主编网络期刊《开放运动:社会运动的全球和公共社会学》,该期刊是和国际社会学学会一个合作项目。他的研究兴趣包括社会运动、年轻人、食品运动、墨西哥的社会运动。他出版过多本著作,其中包括《改变全球化:成为全球化时代的参与者》(2011)、《世界社会论坛和反全球化的挑战》(2007)、《消费批判》(2011年)。

议题: 全球的新型意义— 环境运动与挑战塑造了21世纪早期中的“全球”

提要: 社会运动是全球变化的生产品,也是全球变化的生产者。从世纪开始起,全球的意义和现实已经进行重大进化,而环境运动也参与了它。以借鉴广泛、多运动多行动者的实地调查(当地食品运动、青年环境活动家、生长度减退、厄瓜多尔的“好生活”、非政府间国际组织、欧洲和拉丁美政治生态知识分子),我对环境运动为制定并塑造“全球”作出贡献进行分析。我关注了“全球”的三个互相连接的意义:

1)20世纪90年代末和21世纪初社会运动对速度快全球化过程以后,现在环境运动将“全球”与“再地化”并合起来,把“再地化”放在其实践、断言及备选社会项目的中心。

2)环境运动各个领域中的行动者对当地和全球挑战培养一种更加全面的方式。他们把气候变化与社会和经济问题联系在一起,将日常生活消费与公民权与个人责任联合起来,推动挑战发展一观念的“好生活”全面态度。

3)最终,这些行动者为从“全球化”到阿尔布劳(1996)所称为的“全球时代”的变迁。他们促进关注全球时代两个主要特点的世界观、实践和认识论:人类上增加的互相依赖与地球的限制。

研究这些行动者的实践、主张和意义为我们提供经验资料,来进一步了解今天的世界。本研究也提出一些对社会科学主要挑战,这些挑战仍然深深扎根于现代项目、无限增长及永久扩张中。

议题:中国可持续性理念的社会吸收

提要: 为了适合地达成联合国可持续发展目标,不仅仅需要国家指令、机构演习及工业合作,还取决于获胜公众的理解和支持。个人如何解释自己对资源的“公平”授权、他们将什么价值观与消费选择联系在一起、他们如何权衡自己为美好社会作出贡献,对中国可持续未来都有指数的影响,很少人对这会表示怀疑。然而,引导这些社会知觉并调动集体行为,不仅仅需要自上而下指南或全国家教育。还需要同情公民关于环境和社会弱点的亲密经验的途径。以借鉴来自中国环境运动和消费者导向的生态农业活动的研究结果,本演讲讨论中国社会对可持续性以及其对达成政策目的影响理解力中潜在的全体心态。

议题: 全球政治中的社会多样性:实现可持续发展目标的条件

提要: 可持续发展目标设定了全球问题的行动目标,而世界划分为不同的社会意味着“国际”的问题并没有消失。然而,社会的多样性也是一个潜在的机会。可持续发展目标正在被定义、被特指和测量,在全球政治施行情况下改变条件,有助于取长补短并融合全球政体,与强国共生。

议题:传统中医诊断方法,多模态数据融合与传统中医本体论 — 案例研究

提要:传统中医的诊断方法(四诊)是五模态收集数据的方式,即:望、闻、闻、问、切。这些方式是传统中医医生与患者的原位、人际相互作用。因此,收集的数据先出现在医生的脑海中并融合作为总体:在多模态语言学这被称为人类多模态数据融合。应该评估这些融合的数据来达成一个诊断。认知评估引起了医生的专家理解。这种认知理解造型为本体论构建上多模态语料库语言学。本论文介绍使诊断方法、数据融合、本体论正式化的概念上模型。本论文介绍两个案例来说明概念上模型如何运作。

议题: 媒体话语研究中语料库方法的运用

提要: 在过去的几十年中语料库作为新的研究方法应用于语言学研究。语料库被比作打开宝藏大门‘芝麻开门’的密码把人们引向对语言的新思考。文本语料库蕴含大量自然发生的话语,帮助研究人员辨别语言使用中的真实型式。语料库方法在分析大规模文本上具有很大的优势,语料库无疑成为和语言相关研究的有效资源。作为特殊语言使用类型或特殊类型文本,同时作为社会文化实践的特殊类型,媒体话语既能反映社会现实又在建构社会中起到重要作用。吸引了越来越多不同学科背景的学者关注媒体话语,如:新闻学、社会学、政治学等。本发言将展示三个基于语料库的媒体话语研究案例。

曹青博士,杜伦大学高级讲师,现代语言与文化学院研究主任。他的主要研究兴趣包括文化、社会和大众媒体的互动,尤其是中西方的观念与表征研究。目前他致力于20世纪早期中国报刊关于传统文化和现代性的表征课题研究。他的兴趣还有语言变迁如何反映文化和政治身份的新构建。他发表了几十篇学术论文和文章,主编《西方凝视下的中国:在英国电视纪录片再现中国(1980-2000)》(英文) (2014)。

议题:基于语料库的晚清报刊研究

提要:本文旨在通过对晚清中国报刊的辩论的语言使用考察,研究中国二十世纪的激进主义的辩论。本文以案例分析的方法研究1906-1907年间革命性的《民报》和君主立宪制的《新民丛报》间的辩论。新兴媒体是一个崭新的“认识领域”(福柯),在中国面临着前所未有的挑战时,它在知识生产中形成知识生产范式的转变。本研究探讨那些引进的概念如“国家','国民',和'革命”在新闻中是怎样被建构出来的。研究将通过运用语料库检索行、搭配、语言型式、词簇等分析方法考察话语的形成过程。通过观察报刊辩论这一特殊类型的话语实践,看一个新的现实如何通过知识生产和传播得以形成。本文揭示了西方概念进入中国并与具有中国传统意义的系列关键概念相融合在清代新闻媒体中的推广与传播对20世纪中国产生了重要的影响。

议题: 语料库与中国社会科学研究 — 以《关系抑或礼尚往来:江村的互惠社会支持网和社会创造的研究》为例.

提要: 近年来,面对大数据对质性研究带来的挑战,语言学的语料库方法,即针对任何一个研究对象或主题词,建立经科学取样和加工的大规模电子文本库,并借助计算机分析工具,提供了基本的分析基础。如果再结合话语分析,更加有助于研究者开展与语言相关的理论及应用研究。这种基于语料库的话与分析拓展了人文社科的研究方法,有助于在大数据时代对研究对象的全面准确地把握和深入研究。这次讲座将以一本书,即《“礼尚往来”: 江村互惠、社会支持网与社会创造研究》为个案,来简单介绍语料库和话语分析的方法。
