The Board of the EACS will have its meeting for 1997 in Edinburgh on 12-13 September. Any member who would like to bring any matter that she/he deems useful or vital to the attention of the Board is hereby invited to do so by writing to the Secretary-General (see address on last page).

Oslo, 26 May, 1997

After the election of the candidates of the EACS Board on 6 September, 1996, some members have expressed doubt about the correctness of the announced result. This is understandable, as the printed list of the elected board could be misread. Therefore, I find it necessary to explain the matter to all members:

The printed list containing the new board members was distributed at the end of the General Assembly. The election committee performed their job to the letter. However, at the bottom of the printed list, the score of votes for each numbered individual was also listed. When tallied with the list of the new board members, it did in most cases not make sense. The reason for that is that the number in front of each score of votes REFERRED TO THE NUMBERED LIST ON THE ORIGINAL BALLOT, AND NOT THE FINAL RESULT. When tallied with the original ballot, the final result is correct. Since few members are likely to have the original ballot at hand, I list it below, for those who might want to check it.

Don’t forget: EACS CONFERENCE 1998

“We know of no society, of no culture without its festival. Their origins may have been ritual: the community assembled in celebration of the seasons, of its divinities, of its priest-kings. It will often have been political: the numbering of the tribes, the commemoration of or supplication for victory. The line between sacred and profane, between a harvest-festival and a Nuremberg rally, is difficult to draw. Ideologies have always instituted festivals to symbolize their credo: the new Calendar of the French Revolution is crowded with ornate festivities, as is that of modern totalitarian regimes… [extracts from the Edinburgh University Festival Lecture at the 50th Edinburgh International Festival, by George Steiner, 11 August 1996]

The theme for the next EACS Conference, to be held in Edinburgh September 10-14, 1998, is “Festivals: the Chinese at Work and at Play”. Papers and seminars are invited on all aspects of festivals in Chinese public and private life, from elaborate national celebrations or mourning ceremonies to the everyday rites of home and work.

The conference will be organised along lines similar to those at Barcelona 1996. Pre-conference registration and residential booking (dates to be announced) will lead to fast-track registration at Edinburgh; first-day registration will be on September 9; the conference proper will begin on September 10.

Apart from a small number of plenary sessions, three sessions will take place simultaneously over the conference, organised according to nine broad topics: traditional literature and performing arts; modern and contemporary literature and performing arts; premodern history; modern history, economics and politics; religion and philosophy; anthropology and sociology; visual arts; language and linguistics; information technology. Abstracts will be forwarded to referees for consideration, and a preliminary programme will be published in the spring 1998 Newsletter. Paper-givers who are members of EACS must be fully-paid subscribers at the time the preliminary programme is announced.

A secretariat with a dedicated email address will be set up in Edinburgh in 1997, but members and other interested parties are welcome to contact the conference organiser at any time:

Seven Collaborating Institutes Receive EU Grant

The European Commission decided in December 1996 to support an ambitious proposal submitted by SOAS, the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London, on behalf of seven European academic institutions in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Leiden, Madrid, Paris, and Stockholm. The new four-year EU grant establishes ECAN, or the EU-China Academic Network which, in the words of the original proposal, is intended to promote collaboration and foster a research community among specialists on contemporary China working in European universities and research institutes.

On the ECAN agenda are an annual conference, “at which recent research on contemporary Chinese affairs, undertaken on an individual and collaborative basis, will be presented and critiqued” and a new publication, tentatively entitled the European China Annual, in which a selection of papers expressing uniquely European perspectives on China will appear.

ECAN will assist in disseminating the findings of academic researchers to the general public and to concerned organizations and will in particular stimulate contacts between these specialists and influential government officials throughout Europe; this last by means of small, specially-organized, focused workshops attended by academic specialists and policymakers from individual European governments and the European Commission in Brussels.

ECAN will promote links and collaboration between European specialists on contemporary China and their counterparts in North America, Australia and Asia, andóof particular interest to scholars and advanced studentsóit will administer the EU-China Research Fellowship Fund (ECRFF) to facilitate travel and research in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Besides SOAS, the “core” institutions entrusted with the task of organizing and leading ECAN in its first four-year period are Paris’ Centre de Récherches et de Documentation sur la Chine Contemporaine, Hamburg’s Institut für Asienkunde, the Sinological Institute at the University of Leiden, the Centro de Estudios de Asia Oriental at the University of Madrid, the University of Copenhagen’s Institute of Asian Studies, and the Center for Pacific Asia Studies at Stockholm University. The ECAN secretariat is located at SOAS, and is led by Dr. Robert F. Ash.

The East Asia Terminology Research Center (EAsTerm) has been established to promote harmonisation, unification and development of terminology in the East Asian region. It is located at and administered by the China Standardization and Information Classifying and Coding Institute (CSICCI) and registered with the Beijing Industrial and Commercial bureau.

EAsTerm is a non-profit institution and its main functions in the East Asian region are:

ñ to organize and coordinate terminology research in various languages,

ñ to disseminate the results of terminology research,

ñ to carry out training programs in terminology and in terminology standardization,

ñ to transfer terminological knowledge,

ñ to promote exchange and cooperation among terminologists,

ñ to foster harmonization, unification and development of terminologies.

Given the rapid development of economy, culture, science and technology in China and the fact that Chinese is the most widely used language in the world, it is becoming increasingly important and imperative to harmonize and unify Chinese scientific and technical terms. In addition, EAsTerm will promote the harmonization and unification efforts concerning other terminologies in the region such as Mongolian, Korean, etc.

The inauguration ceremony of the East Asia Terminology Research Center will be held 4 August 1997.

On April 7 and 8, Dr. H.-D. Gasde of the Zentrum fur Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft, Typologie und Universalienforschung, Berlin, Head of the Project on the Syntax of Focus, organized an international workshop on Chinese linguistics. Nine papers were presented. As each paper lasted an hour, there was plenty of time for exchange of opinions. The atmosphere was very congenial. Here is the list of papers presented.

Sentence structure and information structure in Mandarin Chinese

Marie-Claude PARIS (Paris),

Word order and informational content in Chinese.

Lisa CHENG (Irvine)

“Bare NPs in Mandarin and Cantonese”. On the interpretation of bare NPs and Classifier-NP phrases.

Jie LI (Saarbrücken)

On the formal features of the nominal functional categories and the semantics of the NP in Chinese.

Rint SYBESMA (Leiden)

“On verb-le”. Verb-le is not the head of a functional projection. Instead, it is an element deeply embedded in the VP.

Rint SYBESMA (Leiden)

“CP and TP”. Wh moves after all, and sentence-le is the Chinese counterpart of T in Indo-European languages.

Horst-Dieter GASDE (ZAS)

“Left-dislocation in Chinese”. WCO-effects, empty categories and functional categories.


“Left/Right extraposition and ellipsis in coordinative structures”. From the parallelism of information structure to a parallelism of syntactic structures in German and Chinese?
