01 About the Project
The 2023 Regular Project of Guangdong Planning Office of Philosophy and Social Science adheres to the correct political direction, value orientation, and academic orientation. It focuses on major theoretical and practical issues, and emphasizes both fundamental research and applied research. It provides strong ideological support and powerful motivation for Guangdong to lead the way and create new brilliance in the process of building a socialist modernization country. The project categories include general projects, youth projects, Lingnan culture projects, and post-funding projects, with 24 disciplinary groups accepting applications.
02 About the research
This study will examine the formulation, implementation, and operation of disciplinary regulations of local organizations of the Communist Party of China (in Guangdong, Shanghai, and Jiangsu) in the 1920s and 1930s from a cross-regional perspective. It will also explore the influence and shaping of these regulations on the daily lives, emotional identity, and gender politics of party members during that period. Different from previous historical research focusing on "hard" institutional aspects, this study will delve into the "soft" aspects such as individual psychology. In addition to analyzing how disciplinary regulations of important domestic party organizations during the period of the New Democratic Revolution affected party members, this study will also examine localized research within the macro background of the 20th-century international communist movement. It will compare and analyze the differences in practices between the Communist Party of China and other left-wing parties in this field from a transnational perspective.
