About the UK - China Seminar Series

The Confucius Institute regularly invites academics and experts worldwide to give talks at the China Seminars Series about the latest research in language studies, language teaching, international relationships and economics, and other topics.

The China Seminar Series is an annual project organised by the SCI designed to host a number of talks across the year by renowned academic and professors from around the UK and China.

The seminars cover a variety of topics, including Chinese language education, cross-cultural communication, Chinese philosophy, Chinese history and Chinese agriculture among others. In order to promote cross-cultural dialogue between our British and Chinese colleagues, the UK-China Seminar Series was created.

Conservation of Minority Culture in Guizhou Province - A Soundscape Perspective

Joint Presentation by Professor Kang Jian and Professor Mao Liqang

Guizhou is a province with one of the largest number of ethnic minorities in China. The soundscapes of Guizhou undertake and explore social and cultural functions such as the recording of historical culture and the distinguishing of ethnic groups. This talk will analyse Guizhou's traditional culture from the perspective of soundscapes (the everyday sounds of the region and culture), laying a theoretical foundation for the inheritance and dissemination of ethnic cultural heritage. This joint presentation is based on collaborative work of the two speakers.
