CCKF-CHCI Program Renewed as Third Summer Institute on “Chinese Migratory Realities” Begins

As the third CHCI-CCKF Summer Institute hosted by the Kule Institute for Advanced Study and Calgary Institute for the Humanities is under way, we are pleased to announce that the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange and the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes have agreed to continue their collaboration and renew this program for another three years. As in the previous cycle, the support funds will come from a $105,000 grant from the CCKF and $45,000 from CHCI for three summer institutes beginning next year. CHCI has recently put out a call for the first of those three institutes that will take place in the summer of 2019. You can find the call here.

The 2018 Institute on “Chinese Migratory Realities” began in Calgary on Wednesday and will run until July 5. It is co-directed by Christopher Lupke at the University of Alberta and James Ellis at the University of Calgary. In addition to the speakers in the program below, the Institute convenes 20 participants from China, the United States, and Canada, but also Nigeria, Australia, Brazil, and Italy.
