Inheritance and Innovation —— A Re-examination of the Chinese Learning History of the British Community in Guangzhou around the beginning of the 19th century

Time:July 5th (Tuesday) 9:00-12:00.

Location:Tencent conference (ID: 224155352, password: 2022)

Speaker:Wen-Sinn Yang (Assistant Professor of History and Culture, China, School of Chinese Studies, The University of Hong Kong)

To study the history of sinology in the west, we should first study the history of Chinese learning in the west. Around the beginning of the 19th century, the subjects of learning Chinese by the British community in Guangzhou involved such important research fields as Sino-Western diplomatic relations, Guangzhou trade, the spread of Christianity and the history of cross-cultural translation, which attracted the attention of international researchers for a long time. However, the learning experience, learning process and achievements of this learning group with employees of the British East India Company as the backbone are still insufficient. This period of history is also worthy of attention because it witnessed how British Sinology germinated in Guangzhou and grew up in the West. This lecture discusses the teaching and learning materials used and created by learners in this community, including: (1) Chinese dictionaries, textbooks, reading materials and reference books; (2) Letters, study notes and annotations recording the contents of learning Chinese and knowing China; (3) They write or publish works that popularize Chinese and spread knowledge of China studies. The speaker devoted himself to sorting out the historical materials of teaching and learning, including Chinese and European languages, to explore what the community learned, how to learn, how to transform old knowledge into innovation, how to try to spread new knowledge to native people and European society, and to investigate their contributions and achievements in the development of Sinology in Britain and even the history of Chinese learning in Westerners.

From Duck Eggs to Eggs —— The Change of Urban Diet in Modern China

Time:July 7th (Thursday) 10:00-12:00.

Location:Webex Webex Meet(ID:25192774383, password: 2bUTVxRnP55)

Speaker:Zhang Ning (researcher and director of archives at the Institute of Modern History of Academia Sinica)

Birds’ eggs have always been precious food. In traditional China, duck eggs are the majority in egg consumption, at least in the Yangtze River valley and its south. Duck eggs can be preserved for a long time because of their strong temperature resistance, and can also be made into preserved eggs and salted eggs. In addition, hundreds and thousands of ducks can be bred in large quantities in rivers and lakes and sold centrally. Therefore, since the middle of Qing Dynasty, duck eggs have been the main market circulation. As for eggs, due to scattered distribution, it is difficult to transport them to distant distribution markets while maintaining freshness before railways and ships are introduced. However, in the first half of the 20th century, due to the vigorous development of the egg industry, the output of eggs increased greatly, and port cities such as Nanjing, Hankou, Tianjin, Shanghai, Qingdao and other places often had a regular supply of eggs. In the towns along the railway lines of Jinpu, Pinghan and Jiaoji, the number of eggs in the market is increasing because of a large number of eggs. More importantly, with the introduction of western nutrition science, out of the habit that westerners only eat eggs but not duck eggs, biochemists or doctors trained in the west, in their suggestions for improving China’s diet, specially advocate eating more eggs regardless of duck eggs with similar nutritional components, and even rank eggs and milk as the most perfect food, so the importance of eggs has reached an unprecedented height. Under this modern exposition, duck eggs gradually retreated to the second line, and finally disappeared. As for preserved eggs and salted eggs, they turned around luxuriantly and became cultural commodities representing China tradition.
