Partnerships and Events

with the Royal Asiatic Society China and China Crossroads

Tzu-hui Celina Hung

During the spring semester of 2021, the Center broadened its local outreach by forming new partnerships with two of Shanghai’s most notable learned societies for locally based academic and professional audiences: the Royal Asiatic Society China (RAS) and China Crossroads. We procured an institutional membership of the RAS, which now allows NYU Shanghai faculty and staff subscribers to gain discounted rates for both their own events and our jointly hosted ones, as well as to access their library archives. With the RAS, we also discussed potential editorial collaboration in journal special issues in the near future. On February 6, 2021, the Center’s director Tansen Sen gave the first talk for China Crossroads at the Wooden Box café on the topic of “Inventing the ‘Maritime Silk Road.’” Later in May and June, NYU Shanghai Provost Joanna Waley-Cohen and Professor Jacqueline Armijo also delivered talks at the events we co-hosted with the two societies, on the respective topics of “China’s Openness to the West Preceding the Opium War” and “China’s Soft Power Initiatives in the Middle East.”
