NYU Shanghai Center for Global Asia Receives Second Three-Year Luce Foundation Grant
The Center for Global Asia at NYU Shanghai would like to announce the receipt of a second three-year (2021–2024), $450,000 grant to New York University from the Henry Luce Foundation, which will be divided equally among NYU campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, in order to continue developing a research and teaching apparatus for studies of Asia as an open space of expansive mobility, connectivity, and territorial transformation. At NYU Shanghai we will use the funds to continue examining port-cities networking and coastal environments in the Indian Ocean world and start a new interdisciplinary research project on the Belt and Road Initiative. We also plan to organize summer schools in 2023 and 2024. We are grateful to the Henry Luce Foundation and the University leadership at all three campuses for their support for securing this grant.
