About the Event 关于活动
Teacher Xie Shi, who calls himself a pirate descendant, prefers to study the history of the country, society and individuals from the perspective of people's life world and the relationship between people and the geographical environment. In his book The Old Man of Mountains and Seas, the ups and downs of the ocean history, the initiative of island people in the flow, and the official pragmatic and rational flexible policies are impressive. In such multiple tacit understanding, it is possible for people to settle on islands and along the coast.
In this lecture, Mr. Xie Shi will further introduce the cultural exchanges in the South China Sea in history, as well as the maritime activities of the people along the southeast coast of China in the monsoon trade era, so as to guide you to understand the mechanism formed by the economic and cultural network between modern port cities in South China and Asian countries. In addition, Mr. Xie will also try to provide a new perspective for the study of the temporal and spatial changes of modern port cities from the construction of Shantou Commercial Culture History Geographic Information System and Chaoshan Overseas Chinese Approval Document Database.
