British Inter University China Centre - Introducing Dr Mike Gow

Very happy to announce that my doctorate has been confirmed. This site to be update soon.

Dr Mike Gow, BICC Profile:

The British Inter-University China Centre (BICC), which provided full funding to me from 2006-12, has updated their website. BICC is a cross-institutional collaborative research centre led by BICC Director Professor Robert Bickers (Bristol). It was established in 2006 as a joint-research centre based across the Universities of Bristol, Manchester and Oxford. The founding Directors were:

Founding Director Dr Frank Pieke (Oxford, now at Professor of Leiden University)
Founding Co-Director Professor Robert Bickers (Bristol)
Founding Co-Director Professor William Callahan (Manchester).

Part of BICC's mission has been to create a generation of Chinese-literate scholars, with several BICC grads already holding academic posts after receiving their doctorates.

BICC also provided postdoctoral funding and research development fellowships to scholars at all three universities. For more info:

BICC's blog and site is a useful source of info and new developments, events, research networks and other info on China-related research in the UK and abroad.
