Culturing Modernity: The Nantong Model, 1890-1930

封面
Stanford University Press, 2004 - 351 頁
This is a multidimensional study of a simulation of modernity that transformed Nantong, a provincial town, from a rural backwater to a model of progress in early twentieth-century China. The author analyzes this transformation by depicting the new institutional and cultural phenomena used by the elite to exhibit the modern: a museum, theater, cinema, sports arenas, parks, photographs, name cards, paper money, clocks, architecture, investigative tourism, and public speaking. In focusing on this exhibitory modernity and its role in reconstructing this local community and in promoting the Nantong model nationwide, the book sheds intriguing new light on the connections between local and national politics and rural and urban experience.
