Visiting Scholars

The Center for the Art of East Asia invites visiting scholars with substantial experience in research and teaching to spend a year in residence at the University of Chicago to conduct research and participate in workshops and joint research projects. We encourage the sharing of specialized knowledge and the examination of different methodologies on areas of specialization that overlap with those of our Center and its affiliated professors. The association of visiting scholars with the University of Chicago will not entail any employment relationship with the University, nor will visiting scholars be entitled to any salary or benefits available to employees of the University.
