Call for Applications: 2019 Graduate Workshop on China in the Urban Age


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.

The Graduate Workshop will be held at the University of Sydney between 14 and 18 January 2019.
