2017 Post-Dialogue workshop

Chinese for social science

Date: Saturday 2 December

Venue: S0.13, Strand Campus, King’s College London, London WC2R 2LS 

Along with China's increasing influence on the world, it is important to understand how the Chinese government's policies are reshaping and governing the global community, in addition to understanding Chinese social culture. In this regard, Chinese for Social Science might provide an useful aid for help. 'Chinese for social sciences' is in fact 'Chinese language for Social Sciences’, a branch of 'Chinese for Specific Purposes' (CSP), like 'Chinese for science and technology' or 'business Chinese'. In responding to demands from users of our bilingual websites Global China Institute is developing a supplementary course material based on our articles from the Journal of China in Comparative Perspective, material of Global China Dialogue and publications by Global Century Press in both English and Chinese. It aims at serving the purposes of providing better understanding on basic knowledge on China and improving students' and scholars' language skills in English or Chinese on social science issues.

Our current work is focused on the following areas:

I. Reading: Intermediate and advanced levels of reading material are derived from articles which will be published in Journal of China in Comparative Perspective.

  1. Chinese for social science - Advanced level reading
  2. Chinese for social science - Advanced level reading

II. English and Chinese bidirectional translation: the English and Chinese bidirectional translation work is for maintain and update our bilingual websites and blogs.  

III. Chinese multimedia resources: we will add useful tools from time to time to this section.

IV. Creative English translations of Chinese vocabularies

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 Century Press (GCP) is the first publisher focusing on bilingual publications of China, the Chinese and non-Chinese perspectives of China in a global context. It publishes 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  Post-Dialogue workshop - Chinese for social science, in conjunction with it.

随着中国对国际社会影响的日益扩大,除了理解中国的社会文化之外, 如何理解中国政府的政策对全球社会的重塑和治理非常重要。对此,“社科汉语”将会提供直接的帮助。“社科汉语”是“社会科学汉语”简称,它是特定用途汉语(CSP)的一个分支,如“科技汉语”或“商务汉语”。全球中国研究院根据来自我们双语网站用户的需求,我们正在开发一个基于我们的研究工作和双语出版物的课程补充材料。社科汉语也将取材于我们全球中国研究院的《中国比较研究》期刊、全球中国对话的素材和全球出版社出版的著述,它们是了解中国社会和中国人的重要途径。开发社科汉语的目的在于提高有关中国的基本知识和提高学生和学者有关社科问题的中英文语言阅读和翻译的技能。


I. 阅读: 社科汉语中高级阅读材料取之于《中国比较研究》将发表的文章并在“社科汉语”栏目中发表.

1. 中级社科汉语阅读

2. 高级社科汉语阅读

II. 英汉双向翻译: 本项工作主要是为了维护何更新我们的双语网站和博客 

III. 中文多媒体资源: 我们将不断更新此网页的内容

IV. 英语中的中文词语

全球中国研究院通过各种方式推动社科汉语研究,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,全球世纪出版社 (GCP) 是世界上第一个致力于出版英汉双语的社会科学与人文科学著作的出版公司,专注于出版中国比较研究的著述,还包括在全球语境下对世界和人类知识研究的中华视野,以及对中国研究的非中华视野。此外,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社科汉语相关的活动,如本次社科汉语工作坊。
