Description






New talk by visiting scholar (in Chinese)

Guest speaker:

Dr Yin Dexiang from Ningbo University and FAMES

Dr Yin is an Associate Professor at the Ningbo University Faculty of Liberal Arts.  He is currently a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.

Synopsis:

In the past several decades, the views that late Qing diplomats to England held about Victorian society have been much discussed. But little is known of what the Victorian British saw in the pigtailed, colourfully dressed Qing diplomats. This talk focuses on the multi-faceted British image of this unique Chinese group in England, the gradual change in their image, and the significance of such a change in the context of the overall Sino-Western cultural relationship.

Please note: this talk will be in Chinese (putonghua).
