About 關於

The University of Portsmouth’s ‘Port Towns and Urban Cultures’ group, in collaboration with its partners Lloyd’s Register Foundation Heritage and Education Centre, Dalian Maritime University and Hong Kong Baptist University, invites participation from Postgraduate (PG) students and Early Career Scholars (ECR) on the theme of cultural influences, transfer, hybridity and otherness in Treaty Port China.

朴茨茅斯大学的“港口城镇和城市文化”小组与其合作伙伴劳埃德船级社基金会遗产和教育中心、大连海事大学和香港浸会大学合作,邀请研究生 (PG) 学生和早期职业学者 (ECR) 参与以中国通商口岸的文化影响、转移、混合和他者为主题。

The Treaty Port system was imposed by European, and later Japanese, powers on Chinese port settlements from 1842 until the end of the Second World War. As bustling areas of trade and industry, many Chinese treaty ports became hubs of international business, and social and cultural activity which forever transformed the experiences of their residents and workers. This conference aims to explore the emerging scholarship on many aspects of Chinese port life and work.

从 1842 年到第二次世界大战结束,通商口岸制度是由欧洲和后来的日本强加于中国港口定居点的。作为繁华的贸易和工业区,许多中国通商口岸成为国际商业、社会和文化活动的中心,永远改变了居民和工人的体验。本次会议旨在探讨有关中国港口生活和工作的许多方面的新兴学术。
