In Memory of Professor Li Xueqin

The University is deeply saddened by the passing of Professor Li Xueqin, HKBU Doctor of Letters, honoris causa, on 24 February 2019. He was 86 years old.

Professor Li was a renowned historian, archaeologist, philologist and palaeographer. During his long and distinguished career he served as Fellow of the Central Research Institute of Culture and History, Director of the Institute of History of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Honorary President of the Council of the Chinese Society for Research on the Pre-Qin History, and Director of Tsinghua University’s Unearthed Research and Protection Center. He was also an Academician of the International Eurasian Academy of Sciences.

Over the past 60 years, Professor Li had been engaged in the research of ancient Chinese history, palaeography, archaeology, and philology. In particular, he made major contributions to the research areas of oracle bone inscriptions, bronze vessels and their inscriptions, scripts of the Warring States Period, excavated bamboo and silk manuscripts and their related history and culture. Professor Li also presided over numerous major research projects, including the world-renowned “Xia-Shang-Zhou Chronology Project” as well as the “Exploration of the Origins of Chinese Civilization Project”. The Chronology of Xia-Shang-Zhou, compiled under his supervision, grabbed the attention of academics worldwide.

A staunch supporter of the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology (JAS), Professor Li served on the Academic Advisory Board of the Bulletin of the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology. He also led his team from the Unearthed Research and Protection Center of Tsinghua University to co-organise two international conferences with JAS on the Tsinghua Bamboo Manuscripts, pushing forward the pioneering study of the excavated manuscripts in the process.

The University community would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to Professor Li’s family at this time of bereavement. Professor Li will always be remembered for his commitment and immense contributions to the research and preservation of ancient Chinese culture.
