Academia Sinica

Publisher Description

The Institute of History and Philology (IHP), Academia Sinica is one of the most accomplished research institutions in the international Chinese studies community. Founded by Fu Ssu-nien in 1929 in Canton, it moved to Peking in 1929 and then on to Nan-ching in 1934. By the beginning of the Sino-Japanese War, IHP had won worldwide acclaim for its scholarly accomplishments. The archaeological excavation of Yin-hsü in An-yang, He-nan province, patently marked the beginning of a new era in the study of Chinese antiquity.

IHP settled at its current location in Taipei in 1954. It now consists of four departments: history, archaeology, anthropology, and philology, and also holds a library and two museums. The publications of IHP includes The Bulletin of the Institute of History and Philology, Asia Major, Disquisitions on the Past and Present, and special topic monographs, archaeological reports, and collections of historical documents, totaling one thousand volumes.
