Calgary Institute for the Humanities

The Calgary Institute for the Humanities in partnership with the Kule Institute for Advanced Studies (UofA) were awarded a UCI Activities Grant in support of an application to host a CCKF-CHCI Summer Institute in Chinese Studies and Global Humanities. If the application is successful, the Summer Institute will take place in 2018, bringing local and international experts in Chinese Studies together with junior scholars to explore the topic of Migration from an interdisciplinary perspective. The two week Summer Institute will be held at the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary and the Banff Centre.

The CCKF-CHCI Summer Institute on Chinese Studies will offer unrivalled opportunities for UCalgary scholars to network with world leaders in the field. The Summer Institute is supported by the prestigious Mellon Foundation, and is administered by the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes, a world-wide organization with over 230 member organizations including significant numbers from Asia.
