One of the Fairbank Center’s greatest strengths is our intellectual community of scholars from around the globe. This year the Center welcomes a new cohort of scholars and affiliates to the Fairbank Center’s vibrant international community.

Our 2019-20 An Wang Postdoctoral Fellows – Meir Alkon, Yilang Feng, and Audrye Wong – will develop their research on China’s growing outbound interactions on the world stage. We are pleased that our fellows’ ground-breaking projects are part of a research collaboration with the Columbia-Harvard China and the World Program, led by faculty members Alastair Iain Johnston, Meg Rithmire, and Mark Wu.

The Center prides itself as a nexus of international collaboration and interdisciplinary research on China. To this end, we welcome eighteen scholars as part of our Visiting Scholars program, a key component of the Center’s engagement beyond Harvard. Scholars join us from different academic disciplines, and the Center is fortunate to have so many distinguished academics and practitioners from across East Asia and North America to collaborate with the Fairbank Center.

Our broad engagement is illustrated not only by our Visiting Scholars but also by our Associates in Research program, which connects scholars working on China throughout the world. Epecifically Courtney Fung and Alanna Krolikowski both Columbia-Harvard China and the World Program Alums
