LSE’s Innovation ‘thinking like a social scientist’

China is the only country for which LSE's representation is explicitly managed by the External Relations Division (see LSE China). This signifies how important China is to LSE. In 2009 the former LSE Director Sir Howard Davies said: 'At LSE there are more than 500 undergraduate and postgraduate students from mainland China and around 300 from the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong.’ 800 Chinese students represent about 10 per cent of the total student body. LSE has an increasing number of activities in China which can be seen from the projects, e.g. LSE-Peking University Double Degree in Public Administration and Government, LSE - Peking University Summer School 2012, LSE-PKU Double Degree in International Affairs, LSE-Fudan Double Degree in Global Media and Communications, LSE MSc China in Comparative Perspective, TRIUM EMBA .

However, as a discipline-oriented institution LSE doesn't focus on area studies, thus, China studies, as such, does not exist at LSE. The 'China in comparative perspective' was created by Professor Stephan Feuchtwang in 2006. It intended to use China as a comparator to compare, contemporarily and historically, with other countries or regions in interdisciplinary, multiple engagements, across institutions, and translational approaches for advancing general knowledge.

In responding to LSE's innovative, interdisciplinary and methodological lecture series 'Thinking like a social scientist' people in CCPN at LSE developed the approach 'advanced studies on China' in 2008. An explicit distinction was made between 'China studies' and 'advanced studies on China': the latter describes discipline-based social scientific studies on China, like ‘China in comparative perspective’, which was expanded as ‘China and Chinese in comparative Perspective’. It was hoped through advancing studies on China at LSE to continue its mission 'to enhance its position as the leading academic centre of international excellence in the social sciences'. 

Coincidently ‘thinking like a social scientist’ was developed as an innovative course at LSE100 in 2010. It ‘introduces first year undergraduates to the fundamental elements of thinking like a social scientist, by exploring some of the great intellectual debates of our time from the perspectives of different disciplines’ (see LSE 100).

Thinking Like a Social Scientist lecture series

In this lunchtime series lectures, a selection of LSE’s academics from across the spectrum of the social sciences explain the latest thinking on how social scientists work to address the critical problems of the day. They survey the leading ideas and contributions made by their discipline, explain the types of problems that are addressed and the tools that are used, and explore the kinds of solutions proposed.

If you search for 'Thinking like a social scientist' from the LSE website you will get about 431 results (on 9th Jan 2009 and double the number in 2013). In order to help people who are interested in the theme to access all this information the CCPN Research Assistant, Ingeborg Farstad, archived them below drawing on different locations.

LSE的‘像社会科学家那样思考’创意

中国是唯一的一个国家LSE的代表是明确地由外部关系部所管理 (见LSE中国). 这显示中国对LSE是怎样重要。前LSE董事Howard Davies爵士在2009年说: 'LSE有超过500个来自中国大陆的,及有大约300个来自香港特别行政区的本科和研究生。 800个中国学生代表整个学生团体的百分之十。 从下面的项目可以看到LSE在中国的活动在增加中, 像LSE-北京大学公共行政与政府双学位, LSE - 北京大学暑期学校2012, LSE-北京大学国际事务双学位, LSE-复旦全球媒体和传播双学位, LSE 中国比较研究硕士, TRIUM EMBA .

但是, 作为一间以学科为中心的机构, LSE 不注重区域研究。因此, 中国研究在LSE并不存在。'全球中国比较研究'是在2006年由王斯福创立的。这意味着利用中国作为一个比较体来与其他国家或地区在当代和历史上作跨学科, 多元投入, 跨机构和演绎方法的比较, 以推进一般知识。

回应LSE的创新方法论演讲系列 '像社会科学家那样思考', LSE的CCPN在2008年发展了'中国高等研究'方法。'中国研究'与'中国的高等研究'被作出了明显的区别: 后者形容以学科为基础对中国的社会科学研究, 像 ‘中国比较研究’, 及扩大为 ‘中国及华人比较研究’。我们希望可以通过在 LSE推进中国研究去继续它的'提高其在社会科学领域有国际优秀表现的领先学术中心地位'的使命。

巧合的是, ‘像社会科学家那样思考'’在2010年也被发展为一个创新的科目LSE100。它通过从不同学科的角度探索一些我们这个时代的伟大学术辩论向第一年的本科生介绍像一个社会科学家思考的基本要素。(见 LSE 100).
