Pre-Dialogue symposium - Globalization of Chinese social sciences 

Along with introduction and application of general social scientific theories and methods in studying Chinese society there are two prevalent perspectives in the Chinese social science circle: firstly, that foreign scholars’ endeavours to study China are ineffective and cannot solve the practical problems; secondly, that Chinese social scientists should ‘break the Western academic hegemony’. The so-called ‘Western academic hegemony’ includes the publishing of articles in English, writing in accordance with the Western social science norm and style, authors being accepted by the Western academic system, and works being understood through the lens of Western ‘ideology’. To Chinese scholars, these requirements are seen as an ‘academic hegemony’. So in the case of Fei Xiaotong, even if all his works were translated into English, the English version could not always accurately express the essence of the academic thought.

Two viewpoints prevail in Western social science: one is that the level of Chinese social science is generally low; the other is an expectation that new ideas may be learnt from relevant research by Chinese scholars. Among the articles which will be published in the first issue of The Journal of China in comparative Perspective (JCCP) in 2015, one is by a Western social scientist on ‘inventing and developing of Chinese social science vocabularies’ in the context of Chinese social scientist Fei Xiaotong’s research; another one is a Western sinologist’s article on the application of relevant methodological viewpoints, again from Fei Xiaotong’s work. These articles demonstrate how Western authors can be self-reflexive in conducting their research on China, so reaching a new level of research.

Global China Institute promote Globalization of Chinese social sciences  in all aspects. JCCP is committed to publish the best results of empirical studies of problem-oriented research, theoretical and methodological studies bilingually, in order to engage in-depth communication between Chinese and non-Chinese scholars. Global China Press publishesthe the  book series Globalization of  Chinese Social ScienceGlobal China Thinktank is anticipated to introduce Chinese social scientists’ work globally in the framework of the globalization of knowledge, and through consultancy and public engagement to participate in shaping the global society. Global China Dialogue Series (GCDS) annual forum sometimes organises the Symposium of Globalization of Chinese Social Sciences, in conjunction with it.

第四届全球中国对话会前活动

中国社会科学全球化研讨会

中国社会科学界在引进和应用西方社会科学方法研究中国社会时提出过两种观点:一是外国学者对中国的研究等于是隔靴搔痒,意思是其研究结果不及要害,也不解决实际问题;二是主张要打破“西方学术霸权”。所谓“西方学术霸权”包括用英语发表的文章,用西方社会科学规范著述,作者被西方学术体制接纳,作品为西方意识形态所理解等。对中国学者来说,这几项加在一起犹如“学术霸权”,即使是像费孝通这样的学者,用英语能看到的只是他的很少一部分作品,因为他的大量著述还没有被翻译成英文,即使翻译成英文也未定能准确地表达出其学术思想的精华。

在西方社会科学界有两种说法:一是认为中国的社会科学水平普遍较低;二是期待着从中国学者的相关研究学习新观点和新思想。《中国比较研究》将于创刊号(2015年第1卷第1期)发表相关论文:一篇是西方社会科学家对通过对费孝通著作的研究开发中国的社会科学词汇的论文,另一篇是西方汉学家对费孝通的关于词汇的观点的方法论的应用的论文。这些论文表现出作者们已经开始了身体力行,并在自我反省的同时超越自我。

全球中国研究院通过各种方式推动中国社会科学全球化,除了上述提及的通过《中国比较研究》,致力于用英汉双语发表国内外学者在理论、方法论和问题导向的实证研究的成果,在国内外学者之间作深度沟通。同时,全球中国出版社出版中国社会科学全球化系列丛书全球中国智库在知识全球化的框架下,从不同方面全面推介华人学者的学术思想和知识,并且通过顾问咨询和公共参与等方式,参与型塑全球社会。全球中国对话系列论坛有时也组织中国社会科学全球化的学术研讨会。
