The China Residencies Program

Further details on the three seminars will be available later this summer.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Ford Foundation, the Organization of American Historians and the American History Research Association of China (AHRAC) are pleased to announce the fifth year of the exchange program between the two organizations. This program allows three U.S. historians to each teach a one-week seminar in residence at a Chinese university and three Chinese historians of the United States to attend the OAH meeting and spend a week in residence at a U.S. university.

The OAH International Committee and AHRAC will select three scholars from the OAH applicants. The OAH International Committee can offer practical advice about teaching and traveling in China to those selected and put them in contact with previous seminar leaders.

Once host universities and topics have been determined for the 2018 residencies, the application process will consist of a short (3-5 pages) cv, the name and contact information of three references who can speak to the applicant's teaching and scholarship, a brief (1-2 page) statement or brief syllabus outlining the structure and key questions or themes of the proposed seminar, and a brief (1 page) statement of interest and qualifications. Applicants must be members of the OAH.

Further details on the three seminars will be available later this summer; application deadline will be no earlier than October 1.
