The United Board is pleased to announce that the Institute for Advanced Study in Asian Cultures and Theologies (IASACT) is resuming as a month-long residential program in 2023 and is now open for applications!
IASACT, administered by the Divinity School of Chung Chi College of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in collaboration with the United Board, is an annual summer institute that convenes young Asian scholars from various disciplines for reflection, dialogue, and writing
The IASACT 2023’s theme, “Revisiting Heritage in Asia? Preserving, Active Remembering, and Re-imagining”, acknowledges the importance of significant cultural and natural structures and markers that shape human civilizations in Asia. This acknowledgment emphasizes the interconnectedness of the past, present, and future through an in-depth examination of the cultural repositories.
IASACT 2013 recognizes the value of interdisciplinary engagement as a basis for exploring the full range of questions about the theme. We invite scholars with research, professional or practical interest in the theme to contribute to exploring the role of Asian cultures, religions, and spiritualities on critical issues around heritage in Asia.
