Scholarships for graduate workshop on China in Sydney

Associate professor in sociology at UCPH and ADI researcher, Sarah Swider will be guest lecturing at the University of Sydney as part of the 2019 graduate workshop: "China in the urban age: environmental challenges and eco-civilization in China". The graduate workshop will be held at the University of Sydney between 14 and 18 January 2019.

The University of Sydney is organising the inaugural graduate workshop of the recently launched multidisciplinary research program on China in the Urban Age. The program will build a multidisciplinary approach to the study of China to stimulate a connection between the production of local knowledge and the global discussion on the environmental, social, engineering, health, cultural and governing challenges of urbanisation.

The first graduate workshop, aimed at any branch of the sciences, humanities and social sciences with an interest in sustainability, is devoted to China’s environmental challenge and eco-civilisation: a multidisciplinary approach to the Anthropocene. This is an initiative of the China Studies Centre in collaboration with the Planetary Health Platform at the University of Sydney.

Fees and scholarships

There is no enrollment fee for the graduate workshop. Participants will receive free accommodation.

A number of scholarships will be available to help cover the cost of transport to Sydney (up to AUD $1500), relative to country of residence.

Deadline for application is 8 October 2018.
