The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) endeavors to broaden the East Asian focus in interdisciplinary scholarship for which UChicago is famous by supporting a wide range of events, graduate fellowships, and faculty research initiatives. Our activities support training in East Asian studies and languages across an array of disciplines and professional schools on campus. CEAS works to enhance opportunities available to scholars both in the United States and abroad, and to foster communication and interdisciplinary collaboration among the community of professors and students at UChicago and throughout the wider East Asian Studies community. To these ends, CEAS sponsors a variety of activities including conferences, graduate workshops, film screenings, cultural events, public lectures, and other programs that promote understanding of the cultures and societies of China, Japan and Korea. Our faculty and programs in East Asian studies regularly achieve the highest rankings among peer institutions in the United States, making East Asian Studies at the University of Chicago an invaluable national resource and a focal point for East Asian Studies in the Midwest. CEAS has been designated a National Resource Center for East Asian Studies by the United States Department of Education.

Student fellowships, faculty research, and a wide range of events form the core of the Center's activities. For more information about graduate fellowships—including conference travel grants, pre-dissertation research grants, and other offerings—visit our website http://ceas.uchicago.edu and click on the ‘Grants and Fellowships’ tab.

In addition, the East Asian Film Library at CEAS is one of the largest such collections in North America, containing over 7,000 titles from China, Japan, and Korea. It is particularly strong in independent film, documentaries, WWII issues, LGBTQ in East Asia, anime, Korean dramas, and Chinese Opera. The Film Library is free for UChicago student, staff, or faculty use. For more information, please visit http://ceas.uchicago.edu/page/film-library.
