Research Centers

Ancient Civilizations

Chief Coordinator: Ming-chorng Hwang

This research center exists to encourage the study of ancient history.  Its goals include:

1) Exploring new issues in ancient history

2) Encouraging the growth and development of young scholars

3) Engaging in cross-cultural comparative research

Additionally, the center strives to promote interaction among scholars from Academia Sinica and beyond with its pilot programs, collaborative group research opportunities, and through lectures and other forums.  It is hoped that this interaction will serve as a catalyst for the development of new research topics related to ancient Chinese history.
