The Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences is now accepting applications for its MPhil and PhD programs for students interested in conducting cross-disciplinary research on Asia. Applications are due December 1.
Since 2009, the Council has worked in collaboration with multiple core institutional partners to construct InterAsia as a new research site. The InterAsia Partnership has built international and interdisciplinary scholars’ networks, transformed scholarly approaches and research agendas, and promoted the development of innovative comparisons on a number of cross-regional and transregional themes. Activities include the InterAsian Connections Conference Series, a Transregional Virtual Research Institute, and various nodal activities that build on the institutional strengths of each partner, developing regional loci for important InterAsia research and teaching.
Core partner institutions include the National University of Singapore, the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Hong Kong, Yale University, and Göttingen University (Germany).
