The European Association for Chinese Studies (EACS) has provided a grand event of discussion and exchange for the international Chinese studies community. From August 29 to September 1, 2018, the University of Glasgow in Scotland hosted the EACS conference, which is held biennially. The theme of the conference was China and the World: The Mapping of Exchange. NCL’s Zeng Kun-xian and Liao Zhen attended the conference.
National Central Library and the Center for Chinese Studies invited the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation to hold an exhibition during the conference. On display were books, periodicals, and audio-visual materials on Chinese studies published in Taiwan in the last three years, totaling 312 titles (327 volumes). After the conference ended, a set of the books on display were donated to the University of Glasgow and one to the University of Edinburgh. On August 30, NCL’s Zeng Kun-xian held a donation ceremony. The donations were received by Professor Lare Willsdon and Dr. Tong Shenxia, respectively.
