语言研究院、中国外语战略研究中心成立十周年 名家讲坛

主持:余华 博士

摘要:学者生活在一个不为外人所理解的专业世界里。一些对“象牙塔”的无情批判宣称,对大多数公众而言,学术工作是一种奢侈品,而且与社会问题没什么关系。主讲人提出,在这样一种大环境下,让学术到达公众领域,而其要点就在于借鉴人类学家在田野调查时所做的工作方式—为理解学术受众的价值观、态度和偏见做出切实的努力。这对于学术职业而言极其重要,它需要的是反思学术界评价彼此工作与成果的方式,需要回归到学术作品的质量本身,而非简单定量的罗列成果。

"The Academic as Professional: Reaching the Right Audience"

Academics live in a professional world that is not well understood by others. Unsympathetic criticism of “the ivory tower” suggests that for much of the general public academic labor is seen as a luxury and as irrelevant to society’s problems. The speaker will argue that, in this discouraging atmosphere, the importance of public outreach lies in doing what anthropologists are actually supposed to do as a matter of course when they conduct fieldwork: making a real effort to understand the values, attitudes, and prejudices of their audiences. This is vitally important for the academic profession if it is not to be displaced by other institutions, but it also requires a rethinking of the way academic evaluate each other’s work and a return to qualitative criteria rather than the simple enumeration of achievements.
