ON-LINE ACCESS  to 25 Dynastic Histories Database and 13 Classics  with Commentaries Database      The Institute of Chinese Studies, University of Heidelberg has benefitted from a grant   of the CCK Foundation to install the complete 25 Dynastic Histories Database in its   on-line UNIX server. The database has been compiled by the Institute of History and   Philology, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. Under a contract with the Academia Sinica, users   from within Europe can get free online access to the database. At present 25   Institutes and individual users in all parts of Europe are already making use of   this option. They operate with MAC or DOS systems, and have the access either   invidually or open in their library premises for scholars to use. Some individual   scholars use the database through commercial Internet access channels.   The Heidelberg Institute encourages Institutes as well as individual researchers   to make use of this extraordinary ressource. The CCK Foundation has now given a grant   to the Heidelberg Institute to also load a second database from the Academia Sinica   into the server for public access in Europe, the 13 Classics with Commentaries Database,   which has been completed only recently. It will become available later this year through   the same channel.    Scholars and Institutions interested in this extraordinary scholarly ressource should   contact Mr. Hahn at the Heidelberg Institute ( via e-mail   to get a password as well as information on the necessary software and installation    routines for accessing this database (these databases). Information about the technical   requirements and the program files necessary to access the database will be found on   the Institute's World Wide Web homepage site (   The Institute will provide guidance and help in the installation process.    Scholars interested in a first-hand experience with this database will have the   opportunity of accessing it directly during the EACS Conference in Barcelona.

The Center is conducting research activities in these areas and is sponsoring an   inter-faculty program of modern China studies.

Its primary purpose will be to serve Eastern   Europe's need for qualified manpower in Asia-related spheres of government and   business and to provide a forum for strategically relevant cooperative research   programmes, particularly in the fields broadly related to foreign, economic, and   security policy. The Centre is intended to be a source for renewal of Asian studies   in Eastern Europe by drawing them closer into the fold of international academic   cooperation.    The post-graduate programme, offering a master's degree in Asian studies, is planned   to start in January 1997.     The Modern Asia Centre invites applications for three Visiting Scholarships to last   one or two semesters, effective from the launch of the post-graduate programme. Renewal  is possible.    Visiting Scholars will be expected to engage in advanced research and teach an average   of two post-graduate courses per semester: one review course and one in their respective   areas of research. They will also be expected to supervise post-graduate students.   All applicants with strong research and teaching credentials will be considered, but  preference will be given to applicants in political science, economics, business, sociology,   and cultural anthropology.    Visiting Scholarships include a monthly honorarium of Ft 60,000 (US$400) and accommodation   including utilities. Expatriate living expenses in Budapest, excluding accommodation, are   estimated at Ft 35-40,000 per month.    Qualified applicants should send an application letter with a curriculum vitae, including   a list of publications and a detailed description of courses taught, and three letters of   reference to Pal Nyiri, 73 rue St-Bernard, 1060 Bruxelles, Belgium,   or by fax to (322) 456-2889, email    *****************************************************    New editor for China Quarterly    Dr David Shambaugh, formerly senior lecturer in Chinese politics at the School of   Oriental & African Studies and editor of China Quarterly has been appointed professor   of political science and international affairs, and director of  the Sigur Center for   East Asian Studies at George Washington University in Washington D.C.
