CALL FOR SUMMER 2018 FELLOWSHIP APPLICATIONS
Deadline: January 5, 2018
We are very pleased to be able to present to all our researchers and academic visitors this revamped website, which also reflects the recent expansion of our activities. There are still a few improvements that we will continue to make to the site over the next months. But in the meantime, we hope that you will find the information you need about the work of the Ricci Institute, past, present, and future, by browsing these pages. The purpose of the new layout is to be more intuitive and helpful in finding what you need. Various pages and links will lead you to information about our library holdings and related digital resources. Other pages explain how to apply for one of our fellowships, travel grants, and/or workshops. The website also gives an overview of events and scholarly conferences that we have organized over the past years.
We now invite you to explore further our new project on the historical legacies of Christianity in East Asia, supported by a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. Please see below for more details.
HISTORICAL LEGACIES OF CHRISTIANITY IN EAST ASIA
Bridging a New Generation of Scholars & Scholarships
This is an international research, education, and publication project administered by the Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History at the University of San Francisco in collaboration with Brill Academic Publishers in the Netherlands. It is funded by a generous four-year grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. The purpose of the project is to further scholarly research on Christianity in East Asia with a particular emphasis on two different types of study: (1) independent historical narratives of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Christian communities within their respective cultural spheres; and (2) explorations of the historical connections that bind Chinese Christian culture to that of Japan and Korea within the emerging field of global history.
