Tsinghua University, China
Tsinghua University's Institute of International and Area Studies and the College of Social Sciences and International Studies signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2018 to foster new collaborations, and we now have now appointed a Joint Chair in Area Studies.
The two universities work together regularly across a number of disciplines and often exchange staff through the Exeter / Tsinghua Fellowship. The Institute of Arab & Islamic Studies and Tsinghua are working on a Digital Archive of the Middle East project, and plans are under way to develop a Joint PhD in Area Studies. More details will be available here soon.
