AHRC secures passage to Shanghai

The Arts and Humanities Research Council has signed an agreement to allow its fellows to take up residence at the Shanghai Theatre Academy in China.

Rick Rylance, the AHRC’s chief executive, said: “This is a great opportunity for UK researchers to undertake research in China at a formative point of their careers. This is our first extension of the International Placement Scheme to China. But it is also the first time we have engaged with disciplines in the fields of digital and performance, and we look forward to the outcomes with eager anticipation.”

The Shanghai Theatre Academy is a university sponsored by the Chinese government. It covers fine arts, performing arts, digital art and visual culture.
