In the 21st century the enhanced understanding of China and its culture has become an increasingly significant pursuit for academics and key opinion leaders. Through its Greater China Summer Workshop Program in Chinese Studies, SDCF aims to further worldwide awareness and knowledge of Chinese culture and civilization and to enhance the role of Greater China as a major platform for the global promotion of Sinology.

The Fifth Greater China Summer Workshop Program in Chinese Studies will be taking place online this year. If the current pandemic situation improves, the program will take place in the following locations: Hong Kong, Zhuhai, Beijing, and a location at The Silk Road. We decided to add The Silk Road as a new location after the success of “Dunhuang: Meeting Point of Cultural Exchange Along the Silk Road”, the CATL (China Academy of Translation) and SDCF joint invited session at the XXIV World Congress of Philosophy in Beijing (15 August 2018).

The Program is mainly intended as a stepping stone for scholars in other disciplines to start conducting research in Chinese Studies or, more broadly, integrate aspects of Chinese culture within their teaching and research. Those already within the field will also benefit greatly from the program, as it can provide them with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of specific aspects of their broad field of study (e.g. Chinese thought and philosophy, Sino-foreign contacts in pre-modern times, Dunhuang heritage, etc.)

SDCF will support a limited number of sponsored participants in the program. Tuition, room, half board, and travel within Greater China (Hong Kong-Beijing-The Silk Road) are covered by SDCF for all sponsored participants. Travel to Hong Kong at the beginning of the Program and from The Silk Road at the end of the Program needs to be arranged by the participants and is at their own expense. Sponsored participants are expected to integrate learning results into their teaching curriculum and research and are required to sign an agreement as a prerequisite for admission. Full participation in all lectures, seminars, and activities and the completion of a small-scale research project on a topic related to the Program contents are expected.

All instruction is conducted in English and a minimum standard is required for participation.

2018年將於北京舉辦的「第二十四屆世界哲學家大會」是推廣漢學的良好契機。屆時,來自世界各國的哲學家將就各個領域的哲學問題展開發言與交流。若能藉此良機,從多方面、多角度闡論漢學,必將開啟中華文化未來發展的全新的可能性。

本計劃以外國學者和學生為主要培養對象,以漢學為培養內容,以培養能參加第二十四屆世界哲學家大會的海內外青年學者為近期目標。計劃邀請能熟練運用英語的漢學專業的學者作為授課教師,為海外學生量身打造適合他們的,能使他們更便捷、更高效、更具興趣地學到最專業的漢學知識的課程。就目前來講,中國還沒有類似兼具專門性和專業性的培訓項目。本計劃的順利開展,將為中國文化在世界範圍內的有效傳播,打開新的紀元。

本計畫的近期目標是為由北京大學主持策劃、將於2018年在中國北京舉行的第二十四屆世界哲學大會作準備。欲於增加第二十四屆世界哲學大會的參與者人數並同步提高發言品質的基礎上,增加漢學的比重,使漢學在全球各方獲得傳播,則勢必要以非中文的媒介推廣漢為先導。在此契機下,「國學」(中國的稱呼)和「漢學」(國際學術界的稱呼)可以統稱為「中國學」。
