HKBU has received an additional HK$1 million donation from The Jao Studies Foundation in support of the operation of the Collected Works of Jao Tsung-i: XuanTang Anthology, a project launched by the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology at HKBU (the Academy) that translates Professor Jao’s scholarly works into English. The Addendum Signing Ceremony was held on 16 April.
The Academy received a generous donation of HK$2.5 million from the Jao family and The Jao Studies Foundation in 2019 in support of the project. Together with the additional donation, the Jao family and The Jao Studies Foundation have offered their resounding commitment to the project with a total of HK$3.5 million in funding.
Collected Works of Jao Tsung-i: XuanTang Anthology is the first-ever project to translate Professor Jao’s scholarly works, and it aims to promote the wider circulation of the works and extend the influence of Professor Jao’s scholarship, thereby further consolidating the international status of “Jao Studies”.
