The Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology has launched a new book series. The Library of Sinology, which is published by the German academic publishing powerhouse De Gruyter, features both original and cutting-edge studies from eminent Western Sinologists and young scholars. The series exclusively focuses on Classical Chinese Studies with an overarching interdisciplinary bent.

 

The first volume, The Nivison Annals, is a posthumous compilation of Professor David Nivison’s important works on Early China from 1980 to 2014. The second instalment features the monograph Authorship and Text-making in Early China by Dr Hanmo Zhang from the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at the University of Macau.

 

A ceremony was held recently to celebrate the launch. Mr James Nivison, son of Professor David Nivison, and Professor Edward Shaughnessy from The University of Chicago shared their personal thoughts and memories of Professor Nivison.
