The Faculty Development Centre of the International Business School, together with the G20 Research Centre and the Department of Finance of IBS held a sharing session on the theme of “China's Japanese Studies and Sino-Japanese Relations in the New Era”. Professor Lin Chang, a distinguished researcher from the Collaborative Innovation Center for South China Sea Studies of Nanjing University, delivers an insightful lecture.
Professor Lin Chang, starting from the relationship between China and Japan, pointed out that Chinese research on Japan can be divided into the period of recovery (the mid-1980s to early 1990s), the period of adjustment (early 1990s to the 1910s), and the period of development and prosperity (the 2110s to the present) according to the characteristics of each period. Professor Lin suggests that present-day scholars should learn and understand the characteristics of the times in the light of the contemporary nature of Chinese studies on Japan, so as to "write for the times". Lin also analyzed the strategic and mutually beneficial relations in the new era.
As the deputy director of the journal of Asia-Pacific Security and Maritime Studies, Lin introduced the journal and peer review process and advocated more submissions from IBS students and instructors.
After Prof. Lin Chang's presentation, Prof. Lin gave detailed answers to questions raised by Prof. Ren Kangyu, Head of the Finance Department of the International Business School. Through this sharing session, IBS teachers and students gained a deeper understanding and appreciation of the hot spots of Japanese research in the new era.
