個人簡介:夏含夷教授是世界頂尖語文學家、古文字學家及歷史學者,自1980年代起即為美國漢學界領軍人物,多年來深入鑽研出土及傳世的周朝文獻,為周代文化及文學史的研究帶來重大貢獻。夏教授亦是「五經」中《周易》、《尚書》及《詩經》的權威學者,並致力推動金文學、寫本文化和上古史年代學等方面的前沿功究,功莫大焉。研究領域主要包括西周及戰國文化史、古文字學與易學。

講座摘要:中國上古時代年代學是二十世紀末年最活躍的學術課題。中國政府投資大量經費支持“夏商周斷代工程”。二十年後,這個工程的結果幾乎被公認為失敗。在這次講座,我會考察西周時代的兩個王代,即周厲王和周宣王,以便說明斷代工程的問題以及一些新的結論。

Speaker: Professor Edward L. Shaughnessy
Venue: Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology, Level 7, Shaw Tower, 34 Renfrew Road, Kowloon Tong
Language: Mandarin

Biography: As a world leading philologist, paleographer, and historian, Prof. Shaughnessy has been a key figure in American Sinology since the 1980’s and has made a major contribution in the cultural and literary history of the Zhou period through the study of its archaeologically recovered and traditionally received textual materials. He is one of the world’s foremost authorities in the study of three ancient Chinese classics: Zhou Yi, Shang shu and Shi jing, and has considerably advanced the study of bronze inscriptions, manuscript culture, and Early Chinese chronology. His major fields of research are Western Zhou and Warring States cultural history, paleography, and study of the Classic of Changes.

Abstract: The study of ancient Chinese chronology was one of the most celebrated topics of the late twentieth century, when the Chinese government funded the Xia-Shang-Zhou Chronology Project. Twenty years later, the results of that project have not aged well. In this presentation, I examine the evidence for just two reigns, those of Kings Li and Xuan toward the end of the Western Zhou period, to show where the Chronology Project went wrong and some ways that it might be improved.
