The Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CRASSH), based at Cambridge University, has been awarded $50,000 to host a Summer Institute on Chinese Studies and Global Humanities on the theme of China in a Global World War Two.
The principal investigator of the project is Simon Goldhill, the director of CRASSH, who proposed an intensive, two-week program including a mixture of world-class and early-career scholars. The CHCI selection committee was particularly inspired by the international collaboration with the Doreen B. Townsend Center at UC Berkeley and the variety of disciplinary and regional perspectives reflected in the proposed sessions.
The award is the second in a series of summer institutes on the topic of “Chinese Studies and Global Humanities,” a collaborative program between the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes and the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange.
The summer institute at CRASSH will take place sometime in the summer of 2017. More details will be posted as they become available.
