- The Notice of the Ninth Youth Academic Salon of IHNS
Topic：Eurasian Transfer in Science and Technology Intended and Un-intended Consequences of Intercultural Knowledge Transfer
Speaker：Cord Eberspächer （培高德）
Abstract：The transfer of knowledge between China and the West is certainly among the most important issues in the modernization of China and has implications until today. When China started to import Western technologies in the mid-nineteenth century, probably no Chinese official knew the full scope of the consequences they were setting in motion. Although the period of self-strengthening has laid the very foundations for Chinese modernization, it has received surprisingly little attention. This long-term project is intended to challenge old view, create new insights and bring Chinese and Western researchers into a close exchange.
