Results and Impact Between 1860 and 1945, the Chinese port city of Tianjin became the site of up to nine foreign-controlled concessions, functioning side by side. China historian Ruth Rogaski has argued that Tianjin's distinctiveness deserves the appellation 'hyper-colony', a term which reflects Tianjin's socio-political intricacies and the multiple colonial discourses of power and space. This seminar focuses on the historical representations of the former Italian concession in Tianjin, a site which is currently renegotiating its identity between reinvention of the past (1901-1945) and property-led regeneration. I will employ the concept of heterotopia to explore 'semi-colonial', 'hyper-colonial', and 'globalising' representations of Tianjin's built form.
