The American Council of Learned Societies announced Associate Professor Joel Andreas to their 2017 cohort of fellowship recipients. Andreas’ proposal, Land Dispossession in Rural China and India, was selected to the Comparative Perspectives on Chinese Culture and Society program.
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.
