2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: The 11th biennial Conference of the Nordic Association for China Studies (NACS)
August 18, 2017 - 14:39
2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: The 11th biennial Conference of the Nordic Association for China Studies (NACS) themed “Responsible China” at the University of Turku, 11.-14th of June 2013.
As China develops rapidly it faces a number of challenges with/in its natural environment, social structure, governance system and ethnic policies just to name a few of the more salient fields. How can China’s policy makers, ordinary citizens, companies and popular organizations respond to their changing situations? Ultimately, would a richer and more developed China also require more responsible government towards its citizens, environment and region? At the same time, the world is facing a more powerful and self-confident China. With its might growing also its responsibilities to the rest of the world grow. How should and could the global community support China’s development into a responsible superpower, or is it even possible?
The 11th NACS conference organizers particularly welcome papers or panel proposals touching the theme of responsibility, but as a comprehensive conference bringing together China researchers in the Nordic area and beyond, also proposals on other China-related fields are welcome at least on the following topics:
1. Chinese language and teaching Chinese
2. Religion and philosophy in China
3. Chinese legal system
4. Education sector in China
5. Migration in, within and out of China
6. Gender studies
7. Media and journalism
8. Urban and rural issues
9. Economy and economic policy
10. History (contemporary, modern and pre-modern histories)
12. Sociology and anthropology
13. Security and international relations
14. Responsible China
15. Environment/sustainability/climate change
16. Open panels (to be proposed by participants)
The NACS conference organizers welcome individual paper and panel proposals also from non-members. NACS will support Nordic MA and PhD students’ travel costs to the conference.
