Online Lecture Series “Methods in Sinology”

Every Thursday at 5:00 pm CET
Starting 16th Sep, 2021

The goal of the project is to introduce research practices in different sub-fields of Sinology that scholars adopt, but are not always transparent: how does one come up with research questions? What are the most useful information resources and how does one evaluate them? What are the thought and work processes of a researcher when solving a problem, relevant to their field? Each invited lecturer will take a small research problem to exemplify their approach to it.

It currently features four themes: Poetry, History, Linguistics, and Manuscripts. These will be expanded, and more will be added in the coming months.
