Rebirth of the Cool

Gish Jen adds a new dimension to APA literature
By Calvin Liu
New York Times notable books of the year Typical American (1991) and Mona in the Promised Land Now, Jen offers , a collection of eight short stories, including Birthmates , which was handpicked by John Updike for the anthology, Best American Short Stories of the Century Birthmates Despite her focus on Asian American characters, the issues that Jen confronts are significant to Asian Americans in varying degrees. She maintains that her intention is never to reflect any certain ethnic experience, though she admits that her heritage and her writing are unconsciously inseparable. , is a first-generation Chinese immigrant mother whose daughter is married to an unemployed Irish American. While her characters are not necessarily afforded a singularly Asian American viewpoint, Jen says that her Chinese heritage is inseparable from the way she perceives the creative process itself. As such, she finds herself struggling with the Asian-oriented criticism that artistic and literary endeavors are selfish in nature.

The Influence of Western Tattooing on irezumi and the Influence of irezumi on Western Tattooing.
Sailor Jerry (born Norman Keith Collins) was an American tattoo artist who can take a lot of the credit for introducing American style tattoos into Japan and for bringing "Oriental style" designs to tattoos in the West. He had served as a merchant marine during the Second World War and often tattooed at his ports of call, this is how he first came into contact with Japanese irezumi.
However, it was not until 1960 when he opened his last tattoo shop in Honolulu's Chinatown that his interest in Oriental tattooing really developed. He developed a trade relationship with Horihide (Kazuo Ôguri) whereby he would trade American needles and machines for designs and advice and also developed a close relationship with Horiyoshi II and Horisada. According to Margo de Mello, Sailor Jerry "never forgave the Japanese for attacking Pearl Harbor and for what he saw as their economic take over of Hawaii (Hardy 1982c.). In fact by his own admission, Collins wanted to "beat them at their own game": to create an American style that was based on what he called the "Jap style of tattoo", yet one that reflected imagery from the United States."
Collins was the first Western tattooist to use the idea of filling in backgrounds with waves and clouds to create whole body tattoos. He caught the interest of Don Ed Hardy who would later go on to form a close friendship with Horiyoshi III and to publish the first Western pictures of Japanese tattooing in "TattooTime" magazine in 1980.

The first indication of tattooing in Japan seems to have been found as early as 500BC.
"In 1977 a large tumulus mound was opened near Osaka and in it were found two haniwa (clay images), whose faces clearly indicate a depiction of tattooing. These are dated as, at the latest, the fifth century BC"
Although the purpose of these tattoos is not known, prior to this discovery, it was believed that the earliest mention of Japanese tattooing was in the third century Chinese text Wei Chih (The Wei Chronicles) where the Wa (the Japanese) are described as follows.
"Men, young and old, all tattoo their faces and decorate their bodies with designs... the Wa, who are fond of diving into water to get fish and shells also decorated their bodies in order to keep away large fish and waterfowl."
Following this, it has been suggested by McCallum and Stephen Mansfield that the nature of these tattoos was more decorative than protective. The Chinese chronicle, the San Kuo Chi (Account of the Three Kingdoms) compiled in the third century tells of a certain inhabitants of the Kingdom of Wa (Japan) being tattooed according to social rank. Others apparently applied tattoos to ward off evil spirits.
However, this custom seems to have faded and the next references to tattooing appear in the Nihonshoki, compiled in the year 720. It tells of a young man named Azumi no Muraji who was tattooed on the face as punishment for treason.

SAS to Receive $2.5 Million from the Korea Foundation
The Korea Foundation of Seoul and the University recently signed a five-year agreement in which each party will commit $2.5 million to create an endowment designed to establish new professorships in Korean Studies in SAS and to fund related activities at the University. "Over the past decade, we have established high-quality programming in Korean Studies, significantly augmenting faculty, course offerings, links with Korean universities, and outreach," said President Judith Rodin. "Our need, so generously addressed with this agreement, is to be able to increase the number of Korean specialists on the faculty to create a critical mass in the discipline. We are deeply grateful to the Korea Foundation for its interest in raising the level of Korean Studies at Penn so that is among the finest in the world." Six SAS Faculty Win Woodrow Wilson Fellowships
Of the 35 fellowships awarded by the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, DC, six were won by members of the SAS faculty. Winners were chosen from 640 applications received in a world-wide competition among scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Fellowships were awarded to: David Brownlee (history of art); Beshara Doumani and Michael Katz (history); Tom Callaghy and Francine Frankel (political science); and John Skrentny (sociology), who had to decline the Wilson Center fellowship in order to accept one from the Princeton University Center for Human Values.

At the same time, suspicion and resentment toward them by many Vietnamese were growing as well. It was only a matter of time before these two elements clashed.
There were several reasons for the French invasion. First, there were incidents where some French missionaries were expelled and even killed. Second, as France was competing against other European powers for economic and military superiority, they wanted to secure more strategic geographic positions to promote their international trade and capitalism. Finally, the Vietnamese leadership could not decide whether it was best for the country to remain strictly Confucianist and isolated or to begin modernizing. These all led to Napoleon III's order for his navy to invade Viet Nam in July 1857.
