Welcome to CHUS

Our Statement of Purpose

The Chinese Historians in the United States (CHUS) was founded in 1987 by the first generation of Chinese students and visiting scholars who had come to the U.S. to study history during China’s opening-up era. As an affiliated society of the American Historical Association (AHA), CHUS has grown into an academic organization consisting of more than 150 historians from the academia in the U.S., China, and the rest of the globe. With a mission to promote scholarly exchange among its members as well as among colleagues anywhere in the world and to contribute to the advancement of studies of and education in Chinese history, Asian history, world history, and the history of US-China relations, CHUS welcomes anyone with the same interest and pursuit to join us for professional support, intellectual inspiration, and camaraderie.
