Our project “Networks of knowledge about China: on the analysis and creation of complex disciplinary spaces” concerns the history of science and disciplines: it deals with actors in the circulation of knowledge with China since the middle of the 19th century. They are analyzed in terms of their complex identities and of the global networks which have contributed to the construction of knowledge and to the universality (and locality) of science through translation processes. After a first trilateral conference in 2021, where we reflected upon the role of actors and networks that have contributed to the construction of sinology as a discipline, we will look more closely at scientific terminologies and dictionaries these actors compiled and which role they played in shaping the modern Chinese and European lexicons. Through reading workshops, round tables and presentations, the aim is to bring French, Italian and German sinologies closer together.
