Advanced Institute for Global Chinese Studies (AIGCS)
AIGCS’s mission is to foster in-depth scholarly exchanges among institutions and scholars in Chinese studies throughout the world in ways that enhance Lingnan’s international prominence for integrating the finest Chinese and Western liberal arts education. With “Global” and “advanced” as its defining features, the Institute is steadfastly dedicated to pursuing global vision, promoting global collaboration, and achieving global impact in the studies of Chinese culture.
Global vision pursued by the Institute is the ideal of “Scholarly traditions of all nations belong to one family” 天下學問一家. The Institute will publish and disseminate research findings that transcend national boundaries and barriers separating Chinese-language and English-language studies and represent cutting-edge scholarship that combines the finest of the two scholarly traditions.
Global collaboration is central to each of the Institute’s seven major programs, ranging from journal publishing to book publishing, postdoctoral fellowships, symposiums and workshops, lecture series, scholars-in-residence, and knowledge transfer.
Global impact is what the Institute strive to achieve by continuously leveraging its advanced, internationally recognized platforms of publication to continuously broaden and deepen collaboration with many leading institutions as well as overseas scholars numbering in the hundreds.
