Comparative Perspectives on Chinese Culture and Society Grantees


ACLS offers a program of support for collaborative work in China studies, funded by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange.

Awards are made to proposals adopting an explicitly cross-cultural or comparative perspective: projects that, for example, compare aspects of Chinese history and culture with those of other nations and civilizations, explore the interaction of these nations and civilizations, or engage in cross-cultural research on the relations among the diverse and shifting populations of China. Proposals are expected to be empirically grounded, theoretically informed, and methodologically explicit.
