Emerging Scholars

The Emerging Scholars program draws on The New School’s tradition of fostering and enhancing knowledge-sharing across disciplines and amongst scholars in different stages of their careers. This unique initiative is designed to provide a platform for both advanced level graduate students in professional fields as well as current PhD scholars and those who received their PhD within the last five years, to present and receive feedback on their ongoing research and to discuss recent advances and new trends in research on India and China.

ICI hosts a semi-annual conference in China, India and the United States (a select group of presenters from the India and China conferences are invited to join American-based scholars in New York City) in which the below scholars presented their works in progress. You can review selected finished reports from previous Fellows in our Working Paper Series.
