China Studies Centre
TThe University of Sydney's China Studies Centre started operations in January 2011. It was established to provide coordination and direction to the study of China and Chinese culture at the University. Around 150 University of Sydney academic staff are engaged in the study of China. Through its 17 academic groups, the China Studies Centre facilitates cross-disciplinary collaboration between these academics. In addition to supporting research and scholarship, the Centre teaches several postgraduate programs in China Studies and interacts with business, government and community activities concerned with the study of China in both China and Australia.
Sydney Ideas co-presented a program of public events including launches, lectures and forums through-out the first year of operations, 2011.
