About the Project

Chinese Culture in the Global Context is an IDS project set up by the School of Arts and Social Sciences (A&SS) at The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK). It is funded by an RGC grant with the aim to enhance the research capability of the OUHK academics teaching relevant subjects and conducting research in the disciplines of Chinese language, literature, history, philosophy, communication, film and art. This will facilitate the study of the increasingly important role that Chinese culture plays in global affair, and will serve the functions of being a research instrument that informs teaching in the related areas and also as a platform for establishing international connections with major centres of Chinese studies around the world.

Research Activities

(1) Research seminars to address how Chinese culture has been received worldwide and has had an impact in the world;
(2) A conference/workshop to investigate how Chinese culture is taught and studied in different parts of the world; and
(3) Fieldwork to collect data relevant to the research agendas and directions in the area.
