Success Stories, Past, Present, and Future – “The Erlangen IQN and its Perspectives”

Success Stories, Past, Present, and Future “The Erlangen IQN and its Perspectives”From 2001 to 2004 the Department of Sinology at FAU hosted an International Quality Network (IQN) sponsored by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) dealing with knowledge transfer between China and the West: “Exchanges of Knowledge between China and the West. Historical and Philosophical Dimensions”. During that time around 30 scholars came to Erlangen for periods of 6 months up to a whole year. The IQN set high value on promoting young scholars, therefore among the invitees were 20 students from China and Japan preparing their Master or PhD. To this day, 14 people from this group are holding a professorship in China, Japan, and the USA, among the German members 3 are currently working as professors.
The conference was held to appreciate these extraordinary stories of success as an example of early efforts for internationalization at FAU, to show the sustainability of the scientific network generated at the time, as well as develop perspectives for the future.
The conference was financed by generous contributions of the University, the Confucius Institute and the International Consortium for Research in the Humanities.
Below, several reports of participants of IQN can be found in both English and Chinese, as well as pictures taken at the conference.

从2001到2004年,爱尔兰根-纽伦堡大学汉学系中活跃着一个由德意志学术交流中心(DAAD)资助的国际学者网络(IQN)项目:“中西知识交流的历史与哲学层面”。
项目期间,共有30位学者来到了爱尔兰根,进行为期半年到一年的学术访问。爱尔兰根的学者网络项目十分重视对年轻学者的培养,在访问学者中,共有20位是来自中国以及日本的硕士,博士研究生。现如今,他们中的14位拥有中国,日本,或美国的教授职位,当年的德方工作人员也有三位成为了教授。
本次会议旨在追忆大学早年间为国际化进程作出的努力,呈现当年学者网络的可持续性,在庆祝这一成功案例的同时,发现更多未来合作的机会。
爱尔兰根-纽伦堡大学孔子学院以及爱尔兰根国际人文中心(IKGF)对本次会议提供了慷慨的财力支持。

IQN and My Recent Academic Work

DENG Liang (Tsinghua University, former IQN program student)


I am now working at the Institute for History of Science and Technology and Ancient Texts at Tsinghua University. After having finished my master thesis, I got the chance to participate in the IQN program. I was in Erlangen between October 2002 and March 2003, and my research subject at that time was “Joseph Edkins’ scientific research in China.” The academic training in Erlangen was fundamental for my later academic career.

The Turning Point of My Life: the Experience of IQN in Erlangen

FU Banghong (University of Science and Technology of China, former IQN program student)


The IQN experience in Erlangen is a turning point for me with regard to my development in the academia and my attitude towards life. My stay here was from April to October 2002. The research topic was “Sino-West exchange of optics at the late Ming (1368-1644) and early Qing (1644-1911).” Before coming to Erlangen, I was preparing the graduation of my master degree in order to get a management position in my university.

From the Erlangen IQN to My Current Research

GUO Jinhai (Institute for the History of Natural Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, former IQN program student)

Undeniably, the participation in the IQN project is an influential academic experience for me. As a member of the first group of program students, I came to Erlangen in October 2001. I spent one year in Erlangen as a Ph.D. candidate and left to China in September 2002. My research topic in the IQN project was investigating the roles of imported knowledge in the evolution of mathematics as a discipline at Tsinghua University and in China during the Republican Period (1911-1949).

From IQN to IKGF: Review and Reflection of the Past Thirteen Years

LI Fan (Beijing Normal University, former IQN fellow)


From October 2002 to January 2003 I was invited to give the program students of the IQN a class on the “theory of the conjuncture between China and West” in the end of Qing dynasty (1644-1911). At the same time I was carrying on my own research on the sources of the Western knowledge of renowned Chinese scholars, such as Zhang Taiyan and Liu Shipei, especially on the relationship between the theory of the French sinologist Terrien de Lacouperie, namely the “Western origin of the Chinese race and civilization,” and the Nationalism in modern China.

Reflections on My Experience of the IQN Project

LÜ Lingfeng (University of Science and Technology of China, former IQN program student)


When I came to Erlangen for the IQN program, I was doing my Ph.D. research on the conflict between the Western and Chinese astronomy with regard to the accuracy of calendar making during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing dynasty (1644-1911). At that time I was a newcomer in the field of astronomical history.

Discovering Shanghai in Germany; Discovering Germany in Shanghai

SHENG Feng (Shanghai Morning Post, former IQN program student)


The story I would like to share is probably different from most of the former participants of the IQN program, because my personal development turned out quite different compared to most of them. Instead of academic field, I am working in the media sector. In my opinion, however, my story stands out to reflect upon another dimension of the IQN project.

The IQN Program in Erlangen and My Academic Career

YU Wei (Fudan University, former IQN program student)


In October 2001, I became a program student of the first phase of the Erlangen IQN program. After an entire year of study I went back to China. Although my research focuses on the political history and historical geography of the Song, Liao and Jin periods in China, which were dynasties 1000 years ago, the experience of IQN has influenced me in various aspects during the past fourteen years.

My Encounter with Erlangen IQN 

ZHA Xiaoying (Sichuan University, former IQN program student)


Eleven years ago, I went abroad for the first time as a Ph.D. candidate. At that time, for me, out of China there were only two kinds of countries: the weaker ones comparing to China, and the stronger ones. Germany, France, Great Britain, USA… regardless of their differences, for me they all belonged to the Western stronger countries. On the other hand I learned from some researchers on Chinese modern history that the differences among these Western countries were in deed very important.

邓亮,(清华大学科学技术史暨古文献研究所)

大家好!
我是邓亮,来自清华大学科学技术史暨古文献研究所,很高兴有机会再次来到爱尔兰根。今天的发言主题是IQN与我近来的学术工作。首先回顾一下。我是2002年10月至2003年3月,硕士毕业后参加IQN项目,为期半年,当时的题目是“艾约瑟在华科学活动研究”。在此要特别感谢郎宓榭教授,导师韩琦教授。同时也要感谢同期参与项目的罗炤教授,李帆教授,彭文斌博士,徐海松博士,启子,孙青,张慧文,王德容,张晓灵,以及阿梅龙博士,白马博士,顾有信博士等。正如前面老师们、启子、孙青和其他同学已经提到的那些在爱尔兰根的生活、...

从IQN到IKGF:十三年来的回顾与思考

李帆,(北京师范大学历史学院)
一、回顾
1、参与IQN项目的经历:2002年10月到2003年1月间,我受邀参与IQN项目,在德国埃尔朗根-纽伦堡大学汉学系为项目学生讲授“清末的中西交融之学”,同时致力于探究近代中国著名学者、思想家章太炎、刘师培等人的西方知识来源,尤其围绕法国汉学家拉克伯里(Terrien de Lacouperie)之“中国人种、文明西来说”与近代中国民族主义的关联展开研究,在埃尔朗根-纽伦堡大学汉学系图书馆和海德堡大学汉学系图书馆搜集了大量相关的西文核心史料。

Historical Scholarship on Celestial Observation: Reflections from Engagement with the IQN Project

今天我为什么用这个题目,为什么要谈我是IQN学会去理解了技术背后的历史或者说科学精度背后的历史。大家都知道,在座几位朋友当年一起时,我的博士论文似乎是研究明清时间中西天文冲突中两种历法精度的交食推算精度的问题,当时我才刚刚不久进入天文学历史这个领域,对很多背景并不熟悉,我只是像个技术员在分析一些数据。但是到了Erlangen后,听了韩琦教授和郎教授的课。

在德国发现上海,在上海发现德国   

我要分享的故事可能和在座的很多朋友不同,因为我个人后来的发展轨迹和大多数的同学不一样,不是纯学术的领域,而是媒体行业,但我想我的故事也可以反映IQN项目的另一种可能性——不仅可以将学生们培养成很好的学者,也可能将他们培养成其它行业的人才。我是IQN项目第一批的三名硕士研究生之一,于2001年10月来到德国。

爱兰根IQN与我的学术之路

2001年10月,我非常有幸地成为爱兰根IQN第一批Program Students的一员,参与到这个团队中来。整整一年之后我离开了这里。后来我的精力主要放在一千年前的宋辽金的政治史和历史地理,但是我这十四年的成长轨迹,处处渗透着IQN项目的影响,这一点我有很深的感触。
对我影响最深的几件事。一是朗宓榭教授为我们开中国思想史的课,与国内接触到的自我审视和总结的角度很不相同,这是我对于中国以外的学术理念不断进行关注和参照的开始。

选择的背后:从中国现代考古学的知识传承说起

十一年前,当我正在读博的时候,第一次出国。那个时候,对我来说,中国以外只有两种国家,一种是比中国弱小的,一种是更强大富裕的国家。无论德国法国英国美国,都是属于这后一种的“西方强国”。当然,我也看到过一些研究近现代中国史的作者在强调国别差异,抨击“西方影响”这个说法含混不清,所以那时候我对将要前往的德国也抱有一份特别的情绪,希望能够感受到那种据说并非是“一个整体的西方“的内部到底有些什么样的差异。
