An Wang Postdoctoral Fellowships have historically supported junior scholars in any discipline. Postdoctoral fellows are chosen from a competitive selection process. They spend one year at the Fairbank Center working on a book manuscript or articles. In addition, they deliver research presentations to the Fairbank Center community, mentor the Center’s graduate students, and, at times, teach courses in a department.
Sponsored by the Tang Center and to be published by Columbia University Press, the “Tang Center Series in Early China” includes new studies that make major contributions to our understanding of early Chinese civilization or that which break new theoretical or methodological grounds in Early China studies.
