In my contribution to the project I mainly look at the network of scholars and sinologists, which developed around the Sino-German University in Qingdao (Tsingtau). The university was founded in 1909 and did not survive the end of the German colonial enterprise. Although to some extent the school can be seen as part of the attempt of a German “cultural mission”, its pure existence facilitated communication between German and Chinese scholars – and this not necessarily was a hierarchical communication. This can be seen quite clearly from the involvement of a young German scholar Harald Gutherz (Chinese name He Shanxin 赫善心) into the discussions of the law reform of the late Qing-dynasty. Here we actually have a complete reversal of the commonly assumed roles, since conservative Chinese scholars and officials who in one way or another were related to the university used Gutherz in order to give additional weight to their own arguments regarding the preservation of Confucian moral standards in the reformed Chinese penal law code.

I also will look into the terminological work done at this institution, and attempt to understand how these emerging networks contributed to the compilation of Richard Wilhelm’s Deutsch-Englisch-Chinesisches Fachwörterbuch (De Ying Hua wen kexue zidian 德英華文科學字典) published in 1911 and the Deutsch-Chinesische Verzeichnis von Fachausdrücken aus dem Gebiete der Physik und Verwandten Gebieten (German-Chinese dictionary of terms of physics and related areas) of Hans Wirtz published in 1910.
