The Board of the European Association for Chinese Studies is pleased to announce again the EACS Young Scholar Award (YSA). The purpose of this award is to encourage research in Chinese studies among young scholars, especially, but not exclusively, scholars studying and working at European institutions. Candidates for the YSA should be 35 years of age or below and candidates must be registered as EACS members at the time of paper submission.
The jury welcomes papers of high scholarly promise engaging primary sources, secondary scholarship, and innovative research methodologies relevant to the field. Each applicant may submit only one paper of a maximum of 8500 words (approximately 50,000 characters), with a one-page abstract.
The YSA jury hopes to nominate 3 finalists who will be invited to attend the 2018 EACS conference where their papers will be presented during a special session. The three finalists will each be awarded 1,000 Euros after their presentation.
Deadline: 15th Jan 2018
