Young Scholars Workshop 2020 Cancelled

Due to the recent development of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic with increasing infection rates in Europe and existing travel restrictions, we have no other choice than to cancel the Young Scholars Workshop 2020. 

In the hope that things will brighten up soon, we have resolved to schedule the next ERCCT Young Scholars Workshop for the summer 2021, from June 27 to July 3 to be precise, and will announce this during the next weeks. 

If you have been invited to the YSW 2020, please do let us know, whether you are interested to take part in next year’s workshop. Just write to stefan.fleischauer@ercct.uni-tuebingen.de and / or stefan.braig@uni-tuebingen.de

Young Scholars Workshop

The ERCCT organises a yearly Young Scholars Workshop, so Ph.D. students (3rd year and above) and postdocs of the social sciences working on academic projects related to Taiwan or China are invited to submit their application.

The workshop will provide young scholars with the opportunity to:

  • present their research to an international audience;
  • engage in scholarly exchange on topics related to theory and methodology;
  • fine-tune the theoretical framework of their respective research projects;
  • write an article on their research for publication in the Journal of Current Chinese Affairs;
  • get to know Tuebingen and its University;

Ten to twelve young scholars (five-six each from Europe and Taiwan) will be invited to attend.
Travel expenses and accommodation are fully covered by the ERCCT.
