講座摘要 Abstract of Webinar:


Should Chinese history be interpreted only by way of Chinese sources? What is the value of European sources to the studies of Chinese history after the late Ming period? Will the approach “Chinese history through European sources” possibly become a new direction in historiographic research? This webinar presents a dialogue between two experts on Chinese-Western cultural exchanges in history. It starts with a presentation of exemplary texts, followed by a discussion on the production and circulation of knowledge on Chinese history in modern Europe, in parallel with a survey of the major characteristics and trends of Chinese historical writings. The mutual corroboration approach in using Chinese and European sources will be further examined in light of its practicality, advantages, and limits.
