Advanced study on China

Compared with 'sinology' (the study of Chinese classical language and literature), ‘Chinese studies’ (humanities and social sciences combined), or ‘China studies’ (as a branch of area studies), the ‘China in comparative perspective’ is an interdisciplinary social science subject with some of the characteristics of area studies and comparative approach.

Over the past few years, ‘China in Comparative Perspective’ has been developing rapidly (see About us).  Methodologically we have put forward the innovative idea of 'advanced studies on China'. This was inspired by

The advanced studies on China make use of China as a comparator to compare China with other contries or regions, contemporarily and historically, with other countries or regions in interdisciplinary, multiple engagements, cross-institution, and translational approaches for advancing general knowledge. It also compares Chinese people or their thoughts methodologically and theoretically within the broader context of human knowledge. It engages collaborative studies with academic, government, business and the public on China in its Asian and global contexts.

These have been applied in our research projects and will be reflected in our publications


与'汉学 Sinology' (对中国古典语言和文学的研究), '中国研究 Chinese studies’ (人文和社会科学加在一起)或‘中国研究 China studies’ (作为地方研究的一个分支)比较, ‘中国比较研究 China in comparative perspective’ 是一个带有地方研究特色和比较角度的跨学科社会科学科目。

 ‘中国比较研究’在过去几年发展得很快 (见关于我们)。在方法论上我们提出了'对中国的高等研究'的创新观念. 这是被下面所启发的:

对中国的高等研究通过以中国作为比较对象去将中国与其他国家或地区在当代和历史上作跨学科的, 多重参与的, 跨机构和跨国角度的比较去提高一般知识。它也在人类知识的更广泛背景下在方法论上和理论上比较中国人或他们的思想。它与中国的学界, 政府, 商界及大众在其亚洲和全球背景下进行合作研究。
