The “China’s Cities” project was recently chosen for funding by the Institute for the Social Sciences. Each collaborative project is comprised of 4-5 Cornell faculty members, researching a cutting-edge and significant social science issue or topic. Priority is given to “shovel ready” projects that build bridges between researchers across the university.
The “China’s Cities” project is lead by Jeremy Wallace, Associate Professor, Department of Government. Jeremy Wallace is a member of the Cornell Institute for China Economic Research, while team Members, Panle Jia Barwick and Shanjun Li, are the founders and co-directors of the Cornell Institute for China Economic Research.
The Institute for the Social Sciences has fostered excellence in the social sciences at Cornell since its founding in 2004. The ISS encourages collaboration among social scientists across Cornell, supports cutting-edge research on core social science topics, and helps recruit and retain top social science faculty at Cornell.
