Mgr. Ondřej Škrabal

Since joining the Institute of East Asian Studies in 2015, I have been in charge of the basic Modern Chinese language module. I also lecture on Chinese linguistics and palaeography.

My research focuses on unearthed texts of the Shang and Zhou periods (13th-3rd centuries BCE) with a particular interest in the performative function of epigraphic artefacts and in the composition of bronze inscriptions and their production technique. More generally I am interested in the culture of writing, pragmatics of written texts and formulaic language, which is why my research interests extend to ancient Chinese songs, ritual, and beliefs as well as Chinese palaeography and linguistics.

At present, I am completing my Ph.D. dissertation (Peking University, Department of History) which explores the development of the pragmatic function of inscriptions on ancient Chinese ritual bronze vessels and investigates related socio-historical issues.
