Greater China Summer Workshop Program in Chinese Studies

Understanding China and Chinese studies is one of the most important topics for academia in the 21st century. Due to its difficulty and universality, the completion of this task cannot be solely dependent on the international Sinologists themselves. We hope to encourage more scholars, especially those from countries or regions that are relatively under-developed in Chinese studies, to participate in this area, to have direct contact with China and Sinology, and to implement Chinese issues into their own scope of research.
