The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Scholars Visit Programme

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) launched the first Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) Scholars Visit Programme to enhance linkage with CASS. The first visit programme was held from 8-11 February 2012 in CUHK with the theme of archaeology. Three CASS scholars visited the University, including Prof. Wang Wei, Director of Institute of Archaeology of CASS; Prof. Xu Hong, Director of Department of Xia, Shang and Zhou Archaeology, Institute of Archaeology of CASS; and Prof. Liu Guoxiang, Deputy Director of Centre for Public Archaeology, Institute of Archaeology of CASS. During the visit, the scholars delivered public lectures at the Lecture Series by CASS Scholars.

The delegates were warmly received in CUHK. They met with Prof. Joseph Sung, Vice-Chancellor; Prof. Jack Cheng, Pro-Vice-Chancellor; Prof. Leung Yuen Sang, Dean of Arts; Prof. Paul Lee, Dean of Social Science; and Prof. Tang Chung, Director of the Centre for Chinese Archaeology and Art. The delegation visited the Department of History, the Centre for Chinese Archaeology and Art of the Institute of Chinese Studies, and the Art Museum to exchange ideas on relevant research projects. They also participated in the opening ceremony of "The First Dragon of China" exhibition, jointly organized by the Centre for Chinese Archaeology and Art of CUHK, The Institute of Archaeology of CASS and Art Exhibitions China.

 

The three scholars delivered public lectures and shared insight in their areas of expertise in archaeology on 9 and 10 February. Prof. Wang Wei gave an overview of a number of research accomplishments in searching for the origin of Chinese civilization. Prof. Xu Hong examined the factors in the emergence and development of early China, via the introduction of the excavation of the Erlitou site. Prof. Liu Guoxiang talked about the prehistoric influence of Jade culture. The lectures attracted academics, researchers and students from CUHK and other universities as well as members from the general public to attend.

 

The programme bolstered research and academic exchange between CUHK and CASS, paving the way for further collaboration. For more information about this year's Lecture Series by CASS Scholars, please visit www.cuhk.edu.hk/oalc/CASS_2012/.
