ACLS Awards First Fellowship Supported by Munro Fund for Chinese Thought


Teemu H. Rusklola

Donald J. Munro
The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce that Teemu H. Ruskola, professor of Law at Emory University, is the first ACLS Fellow to be supported in part by the Munro Fund for Chinese Thought. Ruskola was awarded a 2014 ACLS Fellowship to pursue research that investigates historical Sino-Western relations and resulting systems of international law through the lenses of the Confucian and liberal philosophical traditions that form them. The abstract for Ruskola’s project, entitled “China, for Example: China and the Making of Modern International Law,” can be found here

The Munro Fund for Chinese Thought supports ACLS Fellowships awarded for research projects on Chinese philosophical traditions and ethical systems that exhibit high quality in sinology and in critical analysis, as well as relevance to human problems. The fund was created through the generosity of Donald J. Munro, professor emeritus of philosophy and Chinese at the University of Michigan. More information about Professor Munro and the fund can be found here.
