Cultural China
Introduction

The Center seeks to promote and investigate the idea of "Cultural China". This "China" encompasses the realm of Chinese culture that is not constrained by political, territorial, or even ethinic boundaries. Instead, it involoves three symbolic universes. The first consists of mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong,Macau, and Singapore-that is, the societies populated predominately by cultural and ethnic Chinese. The second includes Chinese diasporic communities throughout the world, while the third symbolic universe consists of "foreigners"-scholars, teachers, journalists, and businesspeople-who hold a lifelong concern for Chinese cultural traditions. Relying on this broadminded notion of China, we seek to scrutinize issues of identity and develop a more inclusive notion of Chineseness.
