'Understanding and Misunderstanding between the Far East and the West: Conference on East Asian studies in Remembrance of 210th Anniversary of Dr. Rev. Robert Morrison's Arrival at China''

Date: Friday 13 October 2017 - Saturday 14 October 2017

Venue: Room 205, No. 4 the Square, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, G12 8QQ
Speaker: Dr. Alexander Chow, Prof Andy Hamilton, Prof James H Grayson, Dr. Kevin Cawley

When Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox missionaries had freer entrance to China (from 1842 to 1949), Japan and Korea, transcultural communication was strengthened, which resulted in not only understanding but also misunderstanding. How do such understanding and misunderstanding affect the West and the Far East in 19th and 20th century? This inter-disciplinary conference aims to explore the question in different aspects so to acknowledge and recognise the academic contributions by the Christian missionaries in the Far East in the 210th anniversary of Dr. Rev. Robert Morrison's arrival at China.
