The Sydney China Visitors program offers two types of fellowships:
Fellowship recipients, from any University or research organisation in the world, will carry out their research in Sydney for 4–12 weeks, between February and November 2020, collaborating with academic members at the University's Department of Chinese Studies and the China Studies Centre.
This generous fellowship will provide visiting fellows with return airfare, a stipend, office space and library borrowing privileges, as well as access to University facilities and events.
The University of Sydney has a long history of engagement with Chinese language, culture and society. It provides an outstanding environment for researchers interested in Chinese Studies.
The Department of Chinese Studies operates within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney. Its research areas include modern standard Chinese language education, Chinese linguistics, translation studies, Chinese literature, religion, philosophy, history, and media and communication.
The China Studies Centre is the University’s strategic initiative to stimulate the study of China across the institution. Comprising almost 300 academic members, the centre coordinates the multidisciplinary work on China, conducted across all faculties and schools at the University. We are keen to turn research done on China into relevant cross-disciplinary contributions to the resolution of today’s global issues.
This fellowship is enabled by the acuity of vision and generosity of Mr James Lee, a University of Sydney alumnus now based in Hong Kong. The fellowship is designed for scholars who have made substantial contributions to the study of China, in particular to research in literature, culture and translation, and who intend to spend time researching or writing their next manuscript. One or more fellows will be accepted every year depending on the duration of the fellowship. Recipients will be expected to stay in Sydney for 4–12 weeks, between February and November 2020.
