Program Overview

中國建築是世界建築的重要部分,尤其中國古代建築,一直吸引著各國學者的關注與研究。但是,由於中國古代建築的術語較為晦澀難懂,跨語境學術討論中不可避免的術語翻譯,更增加了交流與理解的複雜性,成為學界研究中國古代建築的障礙,也不利更廣泛的人們理解中國古代建築的價值。

有鑑於此,東南大學陳薇、範德堡大學梅晨曦Tracy Miller及東南大學諸葛淨共同發起“中國傳統建築術語注釋與翻譯(The Annotation and Translation of Traditional Chinese Architecture Terminology,簡稱ATTCAT)”國際合作計畫,並每年舉辦工作坊與研討會,通過來自不同文化與語言背景的學者的共同研討,推進對中國古代建築術語的跨語境研究,加強對術語的共同認知。研討成果逐步通過開源數據庫(https://architecturasinica.org)與公眾分享。

本研討會已於2018年以及2019年成功舉辦了兩屆。因疫情與旅行限制,2020年的研討會被迫取消。2021年的研討會由上海紐約大學左拉拉組織,改於Zoom線上會議平臺舉行。

Chinese architecture is a critical component of global architectural heritage. Scholars of historic architecture around the world have been particularly fascinated by China’s traditional timber-frame system. However, the idiosyncratic technical terminology used to describe this system of building has long been an obstacle for scholars. Native and non-native speakers alike find it challenging to fully understand the terms and translate them into modern parlance and across cultural divides. Without a full understanding of the vocabulary used to describe Chinese architectural elements, this rich tradition remains largely inaccessible to an ever-expanding public interested in visiting, and more deeply understanding, China’s cultural heritage sites.

In the light of this, a group of scholars and architectural historians, led by Professor CHEN Wei (Southeast University, China), Professor Tracy Miller (Vanderbilt University, USA), and Professor ZHUGE Jing (Southeast University, China), initiated an international collaboration called the Annotation and Translation of Traditional Chinese Architecture Terminology (ATTCAT). The ATTCAT project is a workshop that meets annually and brings scholars from different countries and cultures together to study the meaning of technical terms in traditional Chinese architecture and develop full annotated translations with bibliographic references. By then publishing revised annotations in open-access databases, the ATTCAT project seeks to advance a common knowledge of Chinese architectural terminology and the heritage it describes.

The ATTCAT Workshop has been successfully hosted twice, first in 2018 and then in 2019. Although the 2020 workshop was canceled due to the pandemic, we are happy to announce that the 2021 workshop will be hosted by NYU Shanghai and organized by Professor Lala Zuo (NYU Shanghai). The event will take place over Zoom across two weekends: June 11-14; and then again from June 18-20.
