I    Introduction

The GCD III will consist three parts:

Part one:

A one-day event for the GCD III on Sustainability and Global Governance for Climate Change at the British Academy, Friday, 2nd December 2016. There will be four panels that bring the theories and methods underlying current debates about global climate change and how to deal with it into sharp relief. In sequence they question the deliverability of the new sustainable development goals (SDGs), review the 2015 Paris Agreement from a governance perspective, examine sustainability in China’s green revolution, and present the case for Corpus-based discourse studies on climate change. In sum they join Chinese research and thinking on managing climate change with equivalent work in the West to contribute to the common human effort to deal with the global threat to our life on this planet. The abstracts and proposed panelists are:

Panel I Delivering the Sustainable Development Goals

The resolution of the UN General Assembly of 25 September 2015 committed member states to transforming the world by 2030 with 17 SDGs and 169 targets. Does the experience of the previous Millennium Development Goals provide encouragement that a programme of this ambition can be sustained and delivered?  What are the likely obstacles in its way, such as war and economic shocks and what kinds of co-operation with other actors, with corporations and civil society in particular will be required?  What kinds of developments in current global institutions, such as the G7 and G20 meetings, and in regional pacts such as ASEAN, will the SDGs promote and will China’s Belt and Road policy assist their achievement? 

Panel II Reviewing the Paris Agreement from a governance perspective

From Copenhagen to Paris, China has taken a lead in shaping global climate governance by jointly negotiating and joining in a binding climate deal. And this has been achieved after President Xi Jinping took office three years ago and the new Chinese leadership has begun to take newly proactive approach in its diplomatic policy. Against the backdrop, it is meaningful to review China’s current contribution to the global climate regime.

Panel III Sustainability in China’s green revolution

From ecological civilization, beautiful China, economic new normal, supply-side economic reform to green development, President Xi Jinping and the new leadership have coined a host of new narratives in achieving sustainable and balanced development. It shows that the leadership is keen to turn its promises made on the global stage into domestic actions by introducing new development guidelines and reshaping its economic and social policies. And China needs such a green revolution to bring this country onto the right track. At the same time, the panel will explore difficulties on the route of China’s green revolution.   

Panel IV Corpus-based discourse studies on climate change

The emerging of corpus linguistics provides a new way of thinking about language. In the past few decades, corpus approaches have been widely used in studying many aspects of linguistic enquiry. Text corpora which contain large number of authentic language enable wide scope of empirical analyses of the actual patterns of use in a language. The corpus-based language studies have obtained a fruitful achievement. It is evident that corpora as a source of empirical data coupled with (semi-)automatic computational tools, such as WordSmith Tools, AntCon and GRAPHCOLL, can be used in a number of different fields of study in which language matters. In recent years, a group of scholars have paid more and more attention to the extension of corpus approaches to a range of social science. CASS at Lancaster University is the excellent representative who is committed to develop new method in the study of language to provide an insight into the use and manipulation of language in society in a host of pressing concern. This panel invites scholars to present researches on climate change and related topics from perspective of corpus based discourse analysis.

Part two: Reception at the House of Commons, the Parliament, on Friday, 2nd Dec 2016.

Part three:

A one-day workshop on Corpus Approaches to Chinese Social Science (CACSS) at King's College London, Saturday, the 3rd December 2016.This is an extension of the Panel 4 of the GCD III, and also an open academic event, for both participants of the GCD III and others who are interested in this topic. 

    With the enhancement of interdisciplinary awareness, linguistic methods, such as corpus based discourse studies, has been applied to sociology, ethnography, cultural studies, psychology, cognitive science and computer science, etc. In the past decade Chinese social scientists are seeking for new methods in analyzing large quantity of texts in addition to quantitative and qualitative analysis. For example, the Contemporary China Social Life Data and Research Center (CCSLC), Fudan University has collected unique set of data on contemporary Chinese social life since 1949, consists of more than 300,000 personal correspondences, over 1,000 books of personal notes, diaries, huge information of the history of personal life, as well as large amount of interview notes, and monographs.The Brill Company has signed a contract with Fudan University Publishing House for publication of 30 volumes of them. This precious material is inevitably adopted as a default resource for the research which language matters. it will undoubtedly be very helpful for understanding the construction of contemporary China's social order and deep structure of ordinary people's relationships. Inspirited by the ESRC Centre of Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) at Lancaster University, CCPN Global engages the CASS, the CCSLC of Fudan University and the RCDC (the Research Centre for Discourse and Communication, Zhejiang University of Media and Communication), together developing the programme of the CACSS. This workshop will introduce related work and engage further discussions with people who are interested in this initiative.      

一  活动简介

第三届全球中国对话由三部分组成:

第一部分:

第三届全球中国对话:可持续性与全球气候治理,2016年12月2日星期五在英国学术院举办。将有四个版块,强调关于全球气候变化并如何处理它的当前辩论的理论和方法。版块分别会对新可持续发展目标(SDG)的产能问题;从治理角度上回顾2015年巴黎协议;检查中国绿色革命中的可持续性;介绍基于语料库的关于气候变化的话语研究案例。总之,它们将中国关于处理气候变化研究和思想与西方学者的相关研究联系起来,为人类共同努力做出贡献,应对对我们在地球的存在的全球威胁。各板块提要如下:

版块一  实施可持续发展目标

联合国大会2015年9月25日决议使会员国承担他们通过的到2030年前改变世界的17个可持续发展目标和169个指标。过去的千年发展目标的经验是否表示能够持续达成如此雄心勃勃的计划?路上可能有哪些可能的障碍,如战争和经济冲击,此外需要与他方,特别是与公司和民间社会,建立怎样的合作关系?在当前全球机构中,如G7和G20会议,还在地区条约中,如东南亚国家联盟,可持续发展目标会促进何种发展?中国的“一带一路”的政策是否会有助于其成功?

版块二  从治理角度上回顾巴黎协议

从哥本哈根到巴黎,中国在塑造全球气候变化治理中,同其他国家协商和参与有约束力的气候协议,都采取了更主动的行动。习近平主席上任之后,新一代中国领导人在外交政策方面上开始采取新的积极态度,取得了目前的成绩。在这种背景下,审视目前中国为应对全球气候变化作出的贡献很有意义。

版块三  中国绿色革命中的可持续性

从生态文明、美丽中国、经济新常态、“供给侧”经济改革到绿色发展,习近平主席与新一代领导人已创造了关于获得可持续平衡的发展许多新的话语。这表明中国领导想要开始实行新的发展规划纲要并重塑经济和社会政策,以便把在全球舞台上所作出的承诺变成在国内的行动。此外,为了中国走上正确的轨道,中国需要这样的绿色革命, 同时探讨在这条道路上,有哪些困难?

版块四  基于语料库的气候变化话语研究

语料库语言学的出现为我们提供基于语言的新的思维方式。近几十年来,语料库研究广泛用在语言学的学习的诸多方面。含有大量真实语言的文本语料库有助于我们对某种语言中的真实运用模式进行广泛实验分析。基于语料库语言研究已取得丰硕成果。显然,作为实验数据的来源的语料库,与WordSmith Tools、AntCon、GRAPHCOLL等(半)自动计算工具连在一起,能够运用于围绕着语言的许多不同研究领域。近年来,学者们越来越关注语料库研究在各种学科的应用。兰卡斯特大学的社会科学语料库方法是一个优秀的代表,它致力于开创新的语言研究方法,让我们洞察在到处充满忧虑的社会中的语言运用及操作。几位学者将在这一版块介绍基于语料库的关于气候变化及相关话题的话语分析。

第二部分:

    晚上交流聚会,2016年12月2日星期五在英国国会下议院举办。本次活动仅限于受邀请者。

第三部分:

    中国社科语料库研究(CACSS)工作坊,将于2016年12月3日在伦敦大学学院举办。这次活动既是第三届全球对话的第四个板块的延伸,也是一次公开的学术活动,为参会者和其他的对该话题感兴趣者提供的专题学术交流的平台。
    随着跨学科意识的提高,语言学方法,如基于语料库的话语,已应用在社会学、人类学、民族学、文化研究、心理学、认知科学、计算机科学等等。在过去十年来,在定量和定性分析之外,中国社会科学家在寻找新的方法来分析大规模文本。比如,复旦大学当代中国社会生活资料研究中心已收集了从1949年起当代中国社会生活的一组独特的数据,包括30万多私人书信、1千多件个人笔记本、日记、关于私人生活巨量的信息,以及大量采访笔记、专著。荷兰博睿(Brill)出版公司己经与中国复旦大学签约出版其中30卷资料集。这些珍贵的资料无疑可作为语言佐证,成为相关学科研究的默认资料,有助于理解当代中国社会秩序的建构和人与人之间深层关系的结构。受兰卡斯特大学英国社会科学语料库研究中心的启发,全球中国比较研究会联合该中心、复旦大学当代社会生活资料研究中心以及浙江传媒学院话语以及传播研究中心一起,开发中国社会科学语料库研究项目。本次工作坊将展示相关的信息和研究情况并与感兴趣者就相关议题进一步交流。
