This talk examines the intellectual life of one of the most important modern Chinese scholars Chen Yinque and its national and international contexts. In weaving national and international scholarly networks in early 20th century centered on Chen’s intellectual life, this talk particularly analyzes some significant themes in his intellectual world, such as his growth as a modern scholar, the shift of his scholarly concentration, the Japanese and German inspirations of his studies on medieval Chinese history, strands of cultural nationalism in his scholarship, and Chen’s contribution to the formation of modern Geisteswissenschaften in China.
