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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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 (http://sun.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/sin/) 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. It has begun publishing a number of studies on recent developments in China, among them books on Chinese population policies and recent legislation in China. These have been based on field research in China and cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and various provincial institutions. Thomas Scharping conducted a joint survey with the State Statistical Bureau of China on migration to Shenzhen and Foshan in Guangdong province. He organized an international conference on "Migration and floating population in China" in Cologne from 2-4 May 1996. The meeting was supported by the Volkswagen Foundation and brought together scholars from mainland China, Taiwan, the US, Britain, the Netherlands and Germany.

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 se mesters, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org ***************************************************** 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.
