UM publishes first issue of South China Quarterly in 2018
The first 2018 issue of the South China Quarterly, an academic journal in humanities and social sciences
published by the University of Macau (UM) Faculty of Social Sciences and Centre
for Macau Studies, has been released.
This issue continues to place an emphasis on
interdisciplinary issues and includes 16 papers on topics in various fields,
including philosophy, linguistics, literature, history, cultural studies,
politics, sociology, communication studies, logic, ethics, and psychology. Among
them, a paper written by a researcher from the Shanghai Academy of Social
Sciences explores communication exchange between Shanghai and Macao by studying
the similarities and differences between newspapers published in the two cities
in the late 19th century.
In addition, some papers in this issue discuss
topics that concern the academia in both China and abroad, including Concordism, how to deal
with and eliminate poverty, knowledge dissemination in a digital era, and multiculturalism.
Other hot topics in the areas of humanities and social sciences include studies
of labourers on the bottom rung of society in Shang dynasty, perceived value
and ethics activities, and historical anthropology.
