2022 ISSUE 4
The Public Space Issue

This issue, we explore China’s lack of public spaces and debates over which people (and dogs) should have access to them. Elsewhere, we investigate dialect content on social media, unpack the drive for food security, experience centuries-old Kazakh falconry culture, feature an exclusive piece from translator Nicky Harman, and more.

Public Affairs
In China, this summer might be dubbed the “summer of the outdoors”—when urbanites, barred from indoor venues by Covid restrictions, took to the streets to eat and relax. But China’s history of truly public spaces is short, and debates continue to rage over safety and control. Meanwhile, public libraries have been pioneers in welcoming people of all backgrounds, but face a lack of resources and pandemic rules, while millions of pet owners still struggle to find places accepting of their furry companions.
Feature Stories 主题故事
Protecting the Rice Bowl
For much of China’s population, starvation has become a distant memory—yet food security is no less important, with the leadership pledging to make the country capable of feeding itself. Climate change, the pandemic, deteriorating trade relations, as well as the shrinking margins of millions of small farmers, spell out a formidable challenge ahead.
Speaking Up, Passing Down
Chinese has hundreds of regional dialects (fangyan), but just 62 percent of urbanites can still speak their hometown’s dialect. Official conservation efforts, and a new trend of fangyan videos and social media memes, have made some inroads with young people, but is it enough?
Field Notes 乡音
The Last Falconers
The Kazakh people of the Altai Mountains in northwestern China have an extensive history of raising golden eagles as hunting partners and companions. As this way of life disappears with the onslaught of urbanization and poaching, one Kazakh youth recalls his family’s partnership with the “empresses of the sky.”

Kaleidoscope 镜像中国
By the Sea
Summer is here, and with travel abroad still curtailed due to the pandemic, domestic tourists are flocking to China’s 18,000 kilometers of coastline. But the seaside isn’t just a place to catch some waves and snooze on the sand—it’s also home to about 20 percent of China’s population, many of whom depend on the sea for their livelihoods. Photographer Xin Ting, from the seaside city of Shantou, explores his fascination with the sea and all the ways that people live, work, socialize, and dream by the coastline.
Dragon’s Digest 三味书屋
How well do you know the people next door? Could you develop a real connection just by sharing a wall? In this urban tale by writer Zhao Song, a recluse moves into an apartment block in an unnamed city, where not everything is what it seems.
Gallery 水墨丹青
Painting by Numbers
Many look at the rapidly advancing world of NFTs and see dollar signs, but Reva sees possibilities—to combine her love of coding with creativity. The young crypto-artist shares with TWOC the inspirations behind her work, and the cutting-edge future she foresees in computer-based art.
Chilema 吃了吗
Bean Curd Without Beans
This summer snack is a misnomer—called “almond tofu,” but with almost nothing to do with soy beans. Instead, this slippery, slithery dessert is a refreshing treat on hot days, and comes with an intriguing story starting with a charitable doctor and ending with Qing dynasty high society.
On The Road 在路上
Selling Lost Horizons
With towering mountains, bucolic towns, and the cultures of the Naxi and Tibetan ethnic groups, the border region between Yunnan and Sichuan is trying its best to become the paradise of James Hilton’s 1933 novel Lost Horizon. From a city literally changing its name to Shangri-La, to tour operators curating a “Tibet adventure,” we go motorcycling behind the scenes of the tourist trade.

Found in Translation
Nicky Harman began translating literature from Chinese to English in the late 1990s, when published works in this genre were rare. Many award-winning projects later, she looks back on how the field has evolved, and explores the lingering question of why some works get translated while others don’t.
Zoetrope 视听空间
Rustbelt Renaissance
Frozen landscapes, down-on-their-luck workers, desolate factory towns: These are recognizable tropes from movies, books, and art set in China’s Northeast, which has gained an outsized influence on the arts despite its small population and relatively short history. What made this former industrial cradle such fertile ground for creativity?
