Chinese Cities Rediscovered: National Human Geography of China Book Launch

October 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

SACU members are invited by Guanghwa Bookshop to attend the book launch of this major new publishing project.

 

Throughout its 5000 years of civilization, China has always been a nation with a great diversity of natural geography and human cultures. Today, it is also one of the countries in the world that sees the most rapid urbanization process.

There is no better way to understand China than studying its cities in depth. Aiming to publish on 100 cities in its series, National Human Geography of China is a rare encyclopaedia that explores Chinese cities chronologically and multi-dimensionally: from nature to culture, from ecology to economy.

Guanghwa Bookshop sincerely invites SACU members to join them at the British Library, to appreciate the tradition and future of Chinese cities, to share ideas on sustainable growth, and to celebrate the increasingly strong cultural ties between China and the UK.

This book launch is jointly organized by the publisher Sinomaps Press and Guanghwa Bookshop, UK’s leading Chinese bookshop.

 

SACU members can book their free place using the Eventbrite link below.

 

我们诚邀您作为特邀嘉宾出席2018年10月12日在大英图书馆举办的“探索中国城市风貌”——《中国国家人文地理》丛书暨中国城市宣传推广活动。

人类社会的发展过程,就是各种文明不断交流、融合、创新的过程。而城市既是人类文明的核心区域,又是文明进步的前沿地带。“中国国家人文地理”丛书定位于记录中国优秀传统文化和新时代中国发展成就。以城市为单元,全面、立体地展现中国城市的自然地理、历史文化遗产、人文风土资源、生态环境建设、城市蓝图等,是中国城市人文地理百科全书。

大英图书馆藏书品种众多,不仅仅是英国人民的智慧宝库,更是人类文明的宝库。此次,我们非常荣幸地将丛书赠予大英图书馆,希望能与英国人民分享中国优秀传统文化和城市风貌,促进中英文化交流,加深两国人民的了解与信任。

中国驻英国大使馆文化处公使衔参赞、大英图书馆东亚馆藏部负责人、来自中国多个省市的领导人以及多名英国学者、汉学家将出席本次活动。

敬请您届时拨冗出席,至祈勿却为盼!
