Each year the Harvard-Yenching Institute sponsors or co-sponsors conferences and workshops on the humanities and social sciences, with a particular focus on Asian culture, both at Harvard and at academic institutions in Asia.

In addition to holding conferences and workshops open to the public, the Institute’s scholars regularly run intra-Institute academic events, including weekly seminars and lunchtime talks. Each scholar is asked to lead one such event during his or her stay. 

HYI also organizes a series of social events and outings for its affiliates, including holiday celebrations and tours in Cambridge, Boston, and New England. All HYI fellowship recipients are welcome to join HYI’s social activities during their year in residence.
