The HKBU Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology is dedicated to the communication between the academic communities between the East and the West and facilitation of innovative development of Sinology. The Academy is pleased to form a partnership with the Institute of Oriental Studies (IOS), Russian Academy of Sciences and devise a five-year plan together. This collaboration aims to forge a stronger bond between the two institutions, and by extension the two sinological communities, in terms of teaching and research while developing exchange and cooperation opportunities in these areas.


Beginning in October 2021, JAS and IOS, together with the Research Centre for History and Culture (Beijing Normal University - Beijing Normal University-Hong Kong Baptist University United International College), will co-organize an online monthly seminar series titled “New Perspectives on the Old World.” Speakers from the three institutes will take turn as keynote speakers and give online lectures. Through this initiative, we will leverage the competitive advantages of the three distinct sinological communities and engage in a series of high-end, cutting-edge discussions in key academic issues in Sinology.


No registration is required for this lecture series. All are welcome to attend each lecture with the following Zoom meeting details:
