The International Interdisciplinary Colloquium links three major funding bodies funded projects.

The purposes of this event are to bring together researchers who come from different disciplines, universities and counties, but work on similar themes and objects; to carry out an interdisciplinary exploration by using China or Chinese in comparative perspective.
