UH West Oʻahu's Dr. Li-Hsiang Lisa Rosenlee was recently selected by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to be a participant of the Summer Institute as part of the Asian Studies Development program, a joint project of the East-West Center and UH Manoa.
The five-week institute is titled "The Silk Roads: Early Globalization and Chinese Cultural Identities" and will be held at the East-West Center from May 24 - June 25. As described on the program website, it will make use of the rich history of the Silk Roads as a way of examining how global interconnectedness shapes and is shaped by culture, focusing on how China's complex relationships with other cultures—mediated by both overland and oceanic "silk roads"—has been crucial to the emergence of distinctively Chinese cultures over the last two millennia.
Rosenlee is an associate professor of philosophy at UH West O‘ahu. Her research areas of interest are Chinese philosophy, ethics and feminism. She is the author of "Confucianism and Women: A Philosophical Interpretation," (State University of New York Press), and has published numerous book chapters and journal articles, including "Confucian Care: Beyond the Colonial Politics of Feminism" (Liberating Traditions, Columbia University Press), "Neiwai, Civility, and Gender Distinctions," (Asian Philosophy), "How Do We Beat the Bitch?" Beyond Burning Bras: Feminist Activism for Everyone (Praeger Press), and "Ricoeur’s Hermeneutics of the Self and Its Aporia," (International Studies in Philosophy).
