Announcing the Yale-Fudan Center for Research in Cultural Sociology

The Center for Cultural Sociology is proud to announce our newest international affiliation - the Yale-Fudan Center for Research in Cultural Sociology. The center will be hosted at the Department of Sociology at Fudan University in Shanghai, China. This initiative comes about after several visits of CCS Faculty to Shanghai in recent years. This Fall we are proud to host Professors Zhou Yi and Anning Hu at the CCS in New Haven.

The mission of the Center is to develop the field of cultural sociology in the Chinese social sciences and to provide opportunities for learning in both directions. Over the next few years we expect to see collaborative research, lectures and symposia, academic visits and a number of student exchanges.

The initial Program Directors will be  Professors Jeffrey Alexander and Philip Smith at Yale University and Professors Zhou Yi and Anning Hu at Fudan University.
