Our documentary series, which includes the influential Assignment:China series on how American journalists have covered China from the 1940s to today as well as our short focused looks at timely issues (for example The Pivot on the Obama administration's reemphasis on the Pacific region and The Thaw on the changing relationship between the mainland and Taiwan) all need funding to cover stipends, travel, and other costs.
Funds are also sought to make possible our public talks, our conferences, and our documentary screening series.
In addition to the programs above, gifts could endow faculty chairs, visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellowships, support innovative research and instructional partnerships in China, or many other vital initiatives.
