Cindy Yik-yi Chu, Toshihiko Kishi, Suk Mei Irene Wong (eds.), Images of Macau: East-West Exchange and the Derwent Collection (Tokyo: Bensei Shuppan, 2020)
Through an examination of the Derwent Collection, this book explores the changing relations between China and the West, as well as the transformation that Macau underwent, over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries. The more than 150 artworks in this volume include oil paintings, watercolor paintings and sketches – collectively known as “China coast paintings” – as well as block-prints and photographs. These artworks are now stored in the Hong Kong Baptist University.
The era on which this volume focuses was a time of upheaval for Sino–European relations, characterized by the humiliation of the Qing Dynasty in the two Opium Wars (1840–42, 1856–60). In terms of Macau’s history, it was a time in which the city's role as a center of East–West exchange diminished drastically with the rise of Hong Kong, and in which urban expansion and modernization in the northern Macau Peninsula was ignited by the removal of the city walls, beginning in the 1860s. In addition to these material circumstances, the predominant media by which to record these changes also shifted, from paintings and block-prints to photographs.
Cindy Yik-yi Chu, Paul P. Mariani (eds.), People, Communities and the Catholic Church in China(New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2020).
This book explores the Chinese Catholic Church as a whole as well as focusing on particular aspects of its activities, including diplomacy, politics, leadership, pilgrimage, youths, and non-Chinese Catholics in China. It discusses Sino-Vatican relations and the rationale behind the decisions taken by Pope Francis with regard to the appointment of bishops in China. The book also examines important changes and personalities in the Chinese Church, the Catholic organizations, and the Catholic communities in the Church, offering a key read for researchers and graduate students studying the Chinese Catholic Church, the Church in Asia, and religion in contemporary China.
