A workshop on ‘Research Training in Chinese Palaeography’ will be held at The Australian National University in Canberra from 16 to 22 December 2013. We invite applications from scholars of all levels, but particularly encourage graduate students and early career researchers to apply.
The workshop will address the practical problems and methods in reading Chinese manuscripts. It will cover three periods: early, medieval, and late imperial China. Matthias Richter (University of Colorado, Boulder), Imre Galambos (University of Cambridge), and Qianshen Bai (University of Boston) will lead the sessions. Noel Barnard, of The Australian National University, will give a keynote address.
The workshop is supported by the Australian Centre on China in the World and the Research School of Asia and the Pacific at The Australian National University. For participants from Australia and New Zealand, there will be funds available to cover travel expenses and accommodation; international students will be expected to cover their own costs. Lunches and evening meals will be provided to all who attend. We will accept fifteen participants.
Applications should include: a curriculum vitae, with details of university and departmental affiliation, and proficiency in English and Classical Chinese; and a brief letter, no longer than one page, stating your specific interest in attending the workshop. Letters of recommendation are welcome but not obligatory. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2013. Successful candidates will be notified soon after this date.
