Haas Junior Scholars Program

The Haas Junior Scholars Program for Doctoral Candidates at the Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS) allows Berkeley PhD candidates from various disciplines in East Asian studies to come together for twice-monthly meetings of Doctoral Candidate Working Groups during the academic year to discuss perspectives, methodological approaches, empirical research and original findings centered on their dissertation projects. Participants are expected to share draft chapters of research in progress and to receive feedback from peers. Collaboration between humanists, social scientists and additional fields such as environmental or health sciences, city planning, architecture and design, journalism, and so forth are not required but much encouraged. Preference in awards will be given to groups that bring diverse disciplinary perspectives and empirical expertise to shed light on related research questions that may cohere around underlying themes.

Deadline: Monday, April 17, 2017, 5:00 p.m.
