Activities to date

Since its establishment, HWS has supported a range of activities including library collection-building, PhD and postdoctoral research, course design, public lectures, and museum exhibitions and other cultural events. HWS has had the privilege of welcoming prominent scholars to Leiden as Visiting Professors who work intensively with local communities in Chinese Studies, Asian Studies, Art History, and museum work. From 2011 to 2015, HWS supported the National Museum of Ethnology's (Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde) development of its China strategy as an integral part of its collaboration with Leiden University.

HWS currently privileges events with a pivotal role for local and visiting scholars whose work is of interest to academic and cultural audiences alike.
