Posted on May, 06 2011

The European Research Center on Contemporary Taiwan at Eberhard-Karls University Tuebingen will hold a workshop for emerging young scholars from June 26th to July 1st , 2012. The workshop is addressed to young scholars of the social sciences who are working on academic projects related to Taiwan or China. Both Ph.D. students of an advanced stage (3rd year and above) as well as Postdocs are invited to submit their application.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide young scholars from Taiwan and Europe with the opportunity to present their research projects to an international audience and to engage in scholarly exchange on topics related to theory and methodology. It should help the participants to fine-tune the theoretical framework of their respective research and to assess the suitability of their research methods. Participants will also be encouraged to compose an article on their research for publication in the Journal of Current Chinese Affairs.

Ten to twelve young scholars (five-six each from Europe and Taiwan) will be invited to attend. The workshop will also include a two-day excursion to Tuebingen University. Travel expenses and accommodation will be fully covered by the ERCCT.

Interested students are invited to send their CV and submit an outline of their research project (5-6 pages) until July 15th to:
