Recruitment Advertisement for Prof. Paolo Santangelo's Project “Emotions and States of Mind in Ming-Qing China” co-organized with the Research Center for Chinese Culture, Translation and Worldwide Communication and Chinese Culture Translation and Studies Platform.

The Research Center for Chinese Culture Translation and Worldwide Communication, with the support of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China, and in collaboration with Prof. Paolo Santangelo (Sapienza University of Rome), plans to establish a database on “Emotions and States of Mind in Ming-Qing China”.

To ensure the success of the Project and facilitate international cooperation, we are looking for a Database Assistant to help Prof. Santangelo update the database and carry out textual analysis. The appointee will cooperate with Prof. Santangelo to improve and develop his database on the representation of emotions during the Ming and Qing periods.

The Project aims to set up an exhaustive database of any directly or indirectly relevant expression, compound lexeme or concept concerning emotions and states of mind in Ming-Qing China. The analysis of these terms allows further investigation into the implied collective imagery, the deep structures of society and culture as well as the authors' attitudes.

The founder of the Project is the Italian sinologist Prof. Paolo Santangelo, who currently owns a database which collects the expression of emotions and states of mind from the literary works of the Ming and Qing periods. The Project is the result of close collaboration with the international scholarly publisher Brill, who has already started publishing part of the research outcomes. The purpose of the Project is to foster cooperation between academic institutions in Asia and Europe, while simultaneously exploring the psychological and intellectual worlds of both civilizations through the adoption of multi-disciplinary approaches that combine psychological, linguistic and anthropological research methods.
