Dear List Members,

The 2018 Chinese Object Study Workshops program is now open for application. Please find below details about the two workshops this year.

Workshop I: Chinese Ink Art, June 11–15, 2018, Freer|Sackler

Workshop II: Early Chinese Jades, August 27-31, 2018, Freer|Sackler

Each workshop is intended for around ten graduate students in relevant subject fields, to be selected from across North America and Europe through an open application process. These students will study and work with a team of faculty and curators from the host museum. A research paper is required to be submitted from each student within 2-3 months after the workshop concludes. Housing, some meals and a transportation stipend are provided to students who are accepted to the workshops.

To apply, please see www.asia.si.edu/research/workshops/chinese-object-study.asp. Students are welcome to apply for both workshops and can use one application for both workshops. They should address their background and interest in each workshop in separate statements. One recommendation letter in relation to the two workshop topics is sufficient. The application deadline is February 23, 2018 with decisions to be announced by March 30, 2017.


Chinese Object Study Workshops is a program that provides graduate students in Chinese art history with an immersive experience in the study of objects—in particular, those belonging to the great collections of Chinese art at such museums as the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Freer|Sackler. The program is generously funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and is administered by Freer|Sackler.
