About the Chinese Studies Research Group (CSRG)

The Chinese Studies Research Group (CSRG) meets several times a year on Fridays to discuss and share ideas and experiences relating to researching China. We also hold regular Research Days to provide Chinese Studies researchers with the opportunity to share their knowledge.


The research areas of our participants are very broad and include, for example: Ming Dynasty history, contemporary politics, Buddhist writings, environmental management, traditional music, anthropology, Christian missionaries, applied linguistics, urban property, education, popular culture and media, etc...


The Group encourages all postgraduate students and academics, regardless of their disciplinary area, who are working on or researching on or about China to join as a member.


The aims of the Chinese Studies Research Group (CSRG) are:

  • To encourage both academic and social interaction of postgraduate researchers working in the area of Chinese Studies;
  • To promote the resources and accessibility of the University's East Asian Collection to all postgraduate students;
  • To provide academic support to fellow postgraduates and thus foster communication of research ideas and collaborations;
  • To transcend traditional departmental, school and faculty boundaries to provide a forum to meet, discuss and learn about the experiences and opportunities of researching in and about China;
  • To represent Chinese Studies researchers from across the university, regardless of department, school or faculty, to promote the interests of Chinese Studies at the University of Melbourne;
  • To enhance the academic and professional life of postgraduate students across the University of Melbourne.

To become a member of the Group, please contact CSRG (csrg.uom@gmail.com) via email

The Chinese Studies Research Group is affiliated to the University of Melbourne Graduate Student Association (GSA).
