Shanghai University 2018 International Forum for Young Scholars

Sub-Forum for Humanities and Social Sciences

Introduction

Supported by key development funds at both the national and municipal levels, the field of Humanities and Social Sciences play a foundational role at Shanghai University. Currently it covers six first-tier disciplines: Chinese Language and Literature, Chinese History, World history, Archaeology, and Sociology and Political Science, with four undergraduate programs being offered in Chinese Language and Literature, Teaching Chinese as a foreign language, History and Sociology; four first-level PhD programs in Chinese Language and Literature, Chinese History, World History and Sociology; and three professional MA programs in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, Cultural Relics and Museums and Social Work and English taught Master program in International Relations and Diplomacy. In addition, there are four postdoctoral fellowship positions in Chinese Language and Literature, Chinese History, World History and Sociology. The disciplines of Chinese Language and Literature, Chinese History, World history and Sociology have been chosen for the Summit and Plateau Discipline Program sponsored by the Shanghai Municipality. In addition, Sociology has been designated as one of the top four Sociology departments in the country. 

By organizing this forum, we invite young scholars in Literature, Chinese History, World History, Archaeology, Cultural Heritage, International Relations and Diplomacy, Sociology, Anthropology, Demography, Folklore, Public Administration or other related backgrounds to join us at Shanghai University to discuss and explore new approaches and methods in Humanities and Social Sciences. Through this event, we hope to recruit young academics who can help us to build the field of Humanities and Social Sciences at Shanghai University.

The forum includes symposiums, academic seminars and a talent fair, all of which serve as a platform for young Chinese and foreign scholars to exchange ideas and explore opportunities at Shanghai University.

Shanghai University is open to the world’s academics and researchers, attracting first-rate scholars to join SHU through the “Talents Plan” platform, set up by China’s Central Government and Shanghai’s Local Government, focusing on the “First-Class Basic Discipline Construction Plan” and “Frontier and Key Discipline Development Plan”.
