Title: Oriental Culture College and International Sinology

Abstract:
In the early 20th century, many academics gathered in the Oriental Culture College, which made great achievements in many fields of Chinese studies and had far-reaching influence. As a major research center of Sinology in Japan, the College actively interacted with other Sinology centers in the world, involving 17 countries such as Britain, Germany, France, the United States and Russia, covering almost all Sinology centers in Europe, Asia and North America. This publication focuses on this content, from the perspective of exchange agencies, sending journals, driving forces and so on.
