The CASLAR Association has launched a research initiative (CASRI) in order to promote the development of research projects and publications on topics that are expected to significantly support Chinese language learning and teaching. CASRI aims to bring together scholars from all over the world to work together on these projects. Special efforts will be made by CASLAR to bring Chinese and non-Chinese scholars together to work on join projects. We will start CASRI with recommending to set up six research groups headed by scholars who are internationally recognized in their respective field of study. Please look at the suggested list below. The group supervisors will be responsible for accepting project proposals, initiating projects and directing projects within the group. They can invite co-directors, assistants and contributors.

All information about the research groups will be put on the CASLAR website coordinated by Dr. Zhiqi Gong (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and Hanh Dinh (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). If you would like to join one of the research groups, please email one of the co-directors in the given group and tell about your idea and/or research.

The results of the CASRI research projects will be published in the form of papers and volumes in the CASLAR journal and a CASLAR book series that will be published by Routledge or Springer.

This is how the CASRI project is suggested to work.

There are two ways to initiate projects:

1) The research group supervisors can initiate a project with a short abstract in which they give some details about the focus of the project, its goals and methodology. They post this project description on the CASLAR website and invite participants and ask for further input. Scholars from all over the world can notify the supervisors through email about their interest in participation and give further input about the project. Then the supervisors will form a research group and make suggestions concerning who does what. When the project is finalized it will be posted on the website with a list of participants. Supervisors can initiate more than one project.

OR

2) Scholars from all over the world can initiate projects. First they should fill in the CASRI Form (please click HERE for the form) that is attached below and will also be available on the CASLAR website, and email it to the selected group’s supervisors. Based on the form details the supervisors will decide in consultation with the initiating scholar(s) if the project is worth pursuing. If they decide to go ahead with the project they will advise the initiator on how to prepare the proposal. When the proposal is accepted it will be posted on the CASLAR website with an invitation for participants to join and give further input to the project. When the project is finalized it will be posted on the website with a list of participants.

If you have any suggestions or questions about these procedures, please contact the group supervisors, Dr. Zhiqi Gong (This email address is being protected from spambots.
