In memory of Ulrich Kautz (1939-2020)

We mourn the passing of Ulrich Kautz, who died on August 7, 2020 at the age of eighty. He was one of the founding members of our association and was elected its first chairman in 1990. Apart from his work as a university lecturer, he rendered outstanding services as a productive translator of contemporary Chinese literature. We will always honour his memory. For an obituary written by Peter Kupfer for "Minima Sinica" we refer to the preprint publication here.

Confirmation of payment for tax authorities

We will not send a confirmation of payment of the membership fee since it is too low to warrant the expense. However, a confirmation of payment (pdf) can be downloaded here. In combination with a bank statement or deposit receipt this will normally be accepted by tax authorities.
