Young Scholars from China and Taiwan Meet in the Department

Four young communication scholars, including three from China and one from Taiwan, arrived on 9 February as part of the Department's highly prestigious Young Scholars from the Mainland Program, which is now in its fifth year. The three mainland scholars include Lei Weizhen (Renmin University), Liu Yunfeng (Nankai University) and Xiao Qing (Yunnan Normal University), to be joined next week by Liu Shan (Tongji University), Zhou Kai (Nanjing University) and Zhou Yu (Xiamen University). This marks the first time a scholar from Taiwan, Hsiung Peiliing (National Chengchi University), is invited to participate in the program. These scholars were selected from among 70 applicants. They will be in residence for a month to work on their research and attend seminars. This year the Department hosts 16 young scholars under this program, and the second group of 8 will arrive in mid-March. For further information, visit
