Nishan Confucian Studies Summer Workshop
The 2018 Nishan Confucian Studies Summer Institute International Program offers teachers of Chinese history and culture an opportunity to spend a month at an established Confucian academy reading the Confucian classics with world-renowned experts Roger T. Ames, Chenshan Tian, and other distinguished comparative philosophy and Confucian scholars. The institutes were held annually in the summers of 2011 through 2017, for seven years totally, all of which were deemed to be memorable successes. Since its inception, this annual gathering has attracted the brightest teachers and the most committed students from around the world. In organizing the forthcoming Institute scheduled for the month of July, 2018, we again welcome international participants to read the Chinese classics at Nishan, the famed birthplace of Confucius. We invite all of those students and teachers who are intrigued by Chinese culture and Chinese thought and who seek a more profound appreciation of Chinese cosmology to join us on this unique educational and research journey.
