Thirty-Nine Scholars Embark on Work in China Studies Supported by over $750,000 in Awards from ACLS

With funding from ACLS, early-career as well as senior scholars will research and write about China’s religions, economic systems, histories, art, cinema, environment, and technologies spanning a timeline from the Late Neolithic Age to contemporary times. 

“With continued funding in 2019 from the Henry Luce Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, we are making possible pathbreaking studies on and in China, including work in comparative perspective,” noted Andrzej W. Tymowski, ACLS director of international programs.
