The School of English and International Studies (SEIS) at Beijing Foreign Studies University is proud to announce the launch of the American Studies Faculty Development Program, which will be held from July 16-27, 2012. Funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and the U.S.-China Education Trust, this two-week intensive program aims to train qualified college faculty who will offer American studies courses in their home institutions. The program will offer five courses taught by five senior professors at SEIS: Major American Women Writers, American Intellectual Traditions, Strategic Decisions in the Rise of the U.S., History of American Economic Development, and Social Stratification in the U.S. Each course meets four times a week, two hours per class. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be awarded a Certificate of the American Studies Faculty Development Program jointly issued by the U.S.-China Education Trust and SEIS. The program plans to recruit 20 participants from colleges across the country. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis. SEIS will provide free shared room for out-of-Beijing participants. All participants will be given a 50-RMB-per-day meal allowance. Transportation to and from Beijing and local transportation costs are the responsibility of each participant.

The deadline for application is May 30, 2012.
