Antonio De Caro, a PhD student from the Department of Religion and Philosophy, has won the Young Scholar Award of the European Association for Chinese Philosophy (EACP). The award recognises outstanding papers written by young scholars on Chinese philosophy and the interaction between European and Chinese philosophy.
Antonio’s paper focuses on the writings of an Italian Jesuit, Fr Angelo A Zottoli (Chao De Li, 1826-1902) who lived in Xujiahui, Shanghai for more than 50 years teaching philosophy and theology. He said, “My work provides, for the first time, an English translation of Fr Angelo A Zottoli’s philosophical and theological writings on cosmogony, which he wrote first in Latin and later in Chinese.”
He expressed his sincere gratitude to his supervisor, Professor Lo Ping-cheung, for his valuable research advice and support. He will receive the award during the EACP Conference 2019 to be held in September at Belgium.
