International Glow: The Contemporary Reinvention of a Chinese Humanitas

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Expanding rapidly into the arena of international rankings and partnerships, the Chinese academy—and, most particularly, its humanistic disciplines—is at a crossroads. The market capitalization of the Chinese tertiary sector, including high-profile tie-ups with Western entities and flagship programs from overseas, presents great potential for innovation and collaboration even as the Western humanistic model, including inquiry-based and investigative pedagogies for discovery in the arts and sciences, must itself change and transculturate on Chinese ground.
