|This project will present five case studies based on the history of the Anglo-Chinese schools in Malacca, Singapore, Hong Kong, Fuzhou, and Shanghai, with brief histories of the schools in Tianjin and Chengdu for comparative study.
|This project will analyse the changing concepts of bilingualism, biculturality and Sino-western cross-cultural fertilization within two circles of educators: the missionaries and the Chinese reformers who advocated the collaborative approach.
|This project will analyse the transformation of these schools from their missionary beginnings in the early nineteenth century to becoming elite schools in “Treaty-port China” at the turn of the century.
