OCA & 围炉 | 侬好,童校长

伴随着俞校长的退休,上纽迎来了新一届的领航人——童世骏校长。 这个消息,既出人意料,又在情理之中。在许多同学的印象里,童世骏就是那位国情课上的常驻讲师,然而他和上纽的缘分远远不止于此。很多人好奇:童校长是如何看待上海纽约大学学生的呢?作为一个有着深厚哲学背景的“海龟”,童校长将如何利用个人特色带领上纽走向2.0时代?在他心里,上纽在当今剧烈变动的社会环境下又扮演着什么样的角色? 在校长换届的消息宣布两个星期后,OCA与围炉的成员有幸与童世骏校长进行了一次面对面的深入对话,将同学们的疑惑一一解答。

Why is J.K. Rowling supported in China: Trans Visibility and Transphobia in China 在骄傲月,正视跨性别群体

每年六月的“骄傲月(Pride Month)”最初是为纪念1969年同志平权运动“石墙暴乱”而发起的运动,在五十年后的今天已经成为了一系列全球性的关注LGBTQA+群体的活动。今年,尽管线下活动大多受到了新冠疫情影响,但人们并没有放弃在线上的庆祝与呼吁。然而,在社交媒体上,六月迄今为止与LGBTQA+相关的最引人关注的话题之一,却是J.K.罗琳所发表的关于跨性别群体的观点与随之引起的广泛讨论。在本文中,笔者试图以此为契机,就这个在LGBTQA+群体中被较多地误解与污名化的群体在国内互联网环境的际遇展开探讨。 Following the celebration of Pride Month 2020, the author, intrigued by the discussion aroused on Chinese social platforms following J.K. Rowling’s controversial speech concerning transgender people, tries to understand trans visibility and transphobia in China and beyond. The article is initially intended for Chinese readers and later translated into English, thus non-Chinese readers may find some examples and situations that feel alien or don’t apply to their society.

The COVID-19 coronavirus, for some people, is a set of data; for some, is a loss of property; for some, it is a hidden opportunity; for some, it is loneliness and hopelessness for the individual; for some, it is biting pain…...In this novel, I did not say anything about sadness, but all I want to express is sadness.
