Visiting Scholars - research - SEAS. The School of East Asian Studies can host a small number of Visiting Scholars (VS) and welcomes applications from candidates interested in being associated with the School. Visiting Scholars make a valuable contribution to the research life of the Department, involving themselves in internal activities where possible, and contributing valuably to the external profile of our research and expertise. They benefit from the association with the Department and the University of Sheffield, having access to library and other research resources and the opportunity to interact and build profitable collaborations with staff and students. A VS is expected to have completed a PhD (or have equivalent experience) and be able to demonstrate a track record of excellent research and the potential to produce high-quality publications.

A VS can be appointed for up to one year. Their positions are not normally renewed after this time, except where a compelling case can be made for an ongoing association. About - EASP.

The Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) is a network of 22 Member Country governments that promotes global change research in the region, increases developing country involvement in that research, and strengthens interactions between the science community and policy makers. The APN defines “global change” as the set of natural and human-induced processes in the Earth’s physical, biological and social systems that, when aggregated, are significant at a global scale.

The APN works to enable developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region to participate increasingly in regional cooperative research, and to benefit fully from such research. It strives to assure that the research results contribute to the development of science-based adaptation strategies, policy- and decision-making processes, and developing scientific capacity to address these important issues. History Since then, the APN’s activities have advanced steadily. Vision Mission Goals Core strategies. Social Change and Transformation in East Asia - Research Clusters - research - SEAS. The disciplinary foci of this cluster centre on history, gender studies and sociology. Members involved include: Dr Harald Conrad Dr Marjorie Dryburgh Dr Peter Matanle Illustrative of research at Sheffield has been this cluster's contribution into analysis of urban history; work and employment; the politics of gender and demographic change; and risk and governance.

On the history of urban society, Taylor's work on port cities has developed our understanding of the urban form – both within and beyond "greater China". Dryburgh's work on Republican Beijing explores the connection between the city as national symbol and as social community and site of inclusion or exclusion; and her work on Japanese communities in north China has contributed new insights on the social history of empire in East Asia. Matanle's research on long-term employment in Japan and the UK has promoted a growing awareness of the socio-cultural embeddedness of Japan's lifetime employment system.
