The center supports excellence in research by the Duke Kunshan University faculty with mentorship awards and awards for conferences organized around faculty research. As shown below, the center’s faculty experts are engaged in research on contemporary China ranging across many different topics.

Faculty Research Workshops

The center organizes faculty research workshops that build intellectual community broadly across Duke Kunshan University and Wuhan University. The workshops offer an opportunity for scholars at the two universities to gain and give valuable comments on research in progress on contemporary China. In registering for a workshop, faculty participants agree to read a paper, which will not be presented orally, and to be prepared to discuss the work constructively with their colleagues.
