Updated : 2017-11-29

Two professors at Shanxi University were recently recognized by the National Social Science Fund of China (NSSFC) by winning financial support from the national fund for their research projects.

The two professors are Xie Yaoting, a professor of archaeology in the School of History and Culture, and He Tianping, a professor of philosophy in the Research Institute of History of Science and Technology at Shanxi University.

Xie’s project studies the 585 ancient tombs unearthed in Yicheng county, Shanxi province, with a history spanning from the early period of the Western Zhou Dynasty (c.11th century-771 BC) to the early period of the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC).

The project is of great significance in order to have a deeper understanding of the burial customs, regimes, and rituals used during the Western Zhou Dynasty.

He’s project gives a comprehensive analysis on soft computing from a philosophical prospective. The project will shed some light on methodology in the field of data intelligence.

The NCCFC is the most authoritative funding organization in the social sciences. Shanxi University has been recognized by the fund for two successive years.
