Welcome to the Website of the Academic Confucius Institute Göttingen
Our institute is based on a collaboration between Göttingen University as well as Nanjing University and Beijing Foreign Studies University.
Furthermore, one of our goals is to provide a scientific perspective on Teaching Chinese As A Foreign Language (TCFL): AKI not only collects relevant literature and statistical data on TCFL in Germany, but also initiates and supports related workshops, translation and research.
Moreover, as Germany’s only Academic Confucius Institute we seek to foster academic exchange across a wide variety of disciplines and fields. One of the institute’s purposes is to help establish open, constructive and critical dialogues between scholars from Germany, China as well as a variety of other countries.
In that spirit, we aim at supporting China-related research and teaching in Göttingen – for instance, through lecture series, workshops and visiting professorships.
