‘China and the World: The Mapping of Exchange’
Deadline for submissions 15 January 2018
The 22nd biennial conference of the European Association for Chinese Studies will be held in the University of Glasgow, Scotland on 29 August-1 September 2018. The conference is jointly organised by EACS, Scottish Centre for China Research (SCCR) and School of Culture and Creative Arts (SCCA) at the University of Glasgow.
Scholars from Europe and beyond are invited to submit their paper and panel proposals here. An international board of referees will evaluate the proposals submitted to the organisers. The language of the conference is English.
Though the conference has a theme ‘China and the World: The Mapping of Exchange’, the theme will be treated broadly under the following sections:
- Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language
- Translation and Sinophone Studies
- Premodern Literature
- Modern Literature
- Cinema, Theatre, Performing Arts
- Art, Archeology & Material Culture
- Inscriptions and Manuscripts
- Premodern History
- Modern History
- East-West Contacts
- Hong Kong Studies
- International Relations
- Sociology & Anthropology
- Gender Studies
- Digital Humanities
Special Call for Papers on ‘Collections’
In addition, we are looking to create sessions with a special focus on ‘Collections’: collecting and collections of Chinese artefacts both in Europe and beyond and/or object biographies of them.
Panels are fixed at 2 hours each and two different formats of participation are accepted.
Panel abstract max. 250 words, including name of organizer, chair, participants and discussant; in addition, 3–4 paper abstracts (max. 250 words each). The length of each presentation is to be decided by the panel organiser. The panel organiser is free to think of alternate panel formats, as long as the presentations fit into the two-hour limit.
Individual paper format
Paper proposal (max. 250 words). The length of the paper is 20 minutes, followed by a 10 minute discussion.
All submitters are asked to add a short biography of max. 3 sentences, their status and affiliation (e.g. PhD candidate, University of Glasgow) as well as contact information (address, telephone number, e-mail) to their application.
Applications should be completed using the submission form on this website before 15 January 2018. Questions regarding alternate panel formats are welcome at any time before this date. Please contact [email protected]
